Father Ted Crilly is the central character in the UK Channel 4 situation comedy series "Father Ted" played by the late Dermot Morgan.

Father Ted is one of three priests who have been exiled to the remote Craggy Island by the corrupt and dictatorial Bishop Len Brennan. Taught at a seminary known as St. Columb's, Ted was exiled to Craggy Island for something referred to only as "that Lourdes thing." This apparently involved the misappropriation of church funds intended to be used to send a poor child to Lourdes, which were instead used to go on a gambling spree to Las Vegas. Ted has frequently claimed that the money was "just resting in my account." Ted was previously in Wexford, which happens to be the home town of the series producer, Declan Lowney.Fact|date=August 2008

Characteristics

Ted reflects in an unthinking manner the prejudices and hypocrisies of his social and religious position. Ted dreams of being on television or of leaving the island and becoming a wealthy priest in a parish in Las Vegas, living it up in a casino somewhere. However, Ted's failings just make him more human, and he is a somewhat sympathetic character, hard put upon by the other two priests, the childlike and idiotic Father Dougal McGuire and Father Jack Hackett, a misanthropic and violent drunk.
