Feckin' Hell - Father Damo's Car Has Been Stolen From Dublin

This is a lot more serious than the time Mr. Benson's whistle went missing. 

He may only have played rebellious priest Damo Lennon for a solitary episode of Father Ted but the role has guaranteed actor Joe Rooney a permanent place in Irish pop folklore. 

Lines like "good, I don't want any stupih' tea", "it's only a bleedin' whistle" and "tell him to feck off, then", have been repeated consistently since the mid-90s and let's not forget the iconic question which divided a generation: "who'd ya prefer, Oasis or Blur?"

It comes as no surprise that Rooney remains a much-loved member of the Dublin community which is why people are sad to hear that his beloved motor was stolen last night from the Camden Street/South Circular Road area. 

Dubliners are being urged to keep an eye out for a Nissan X Trail with the registration 08-D-367 

People have been quick to offer their support but there's always one joker who brings everything back to Craggy Island.

Here's hoping the car is found sooner rather than later.
