Drink, Feck, Arse- Frank Kelly RIP

I’ve just read that the actor Frank Kelly, probably best know as Father Jack Hackett in Father Ted has passed away, although Irish people of a certain age will remember him from things like Hall’s Pictorial Weekly or as Doctor Astro in Wanderly Wagon

I hope that someone checked the supply of Toilet Duck :wink:

Just saw that this has already been mentioned in the Television News thread…Mods please fold this in there if you think it’s appropriate.

What’s always struck me about Frank Kelly is how different the general public perception of him (ie. Father Jack) was from his real-life self: erudite, well-spoken, genteel and engaging. About as far away from Jack as you could get. I guess it just shows how great a performance it was.
