On the 20th anniversary of Father Ted’s first episode airing,’see what we admire about the parochial house’s style (hint: remember the funky wallpaper?)…

Now, we know what you’re thinking – but if you take away the damp, the ripped patches and the stains (particularly surrounding Fr Jack’s chair), these printed wallpapers are fairly funky!

Careful now, you might even like them!

Now read our interview with an Irish set-decorating supremo – gorgeous (Oscar-winning) graphic designer Annie Atkins.
