Fr Ted actor puts himself off the road

Fr Ted actor Gerard McSorley put himself off the road following his prosecution for a speeding offence.

He was fined today (Wed) €100 for driving at 69 kilometres in a 60-kilometre per hour zone on the R257 at Cnoc an Stollaire, Bunbeg, last October 20.

McSorley, who played Fr Todd Unctuous in the tv series, wasn’t in Dungloe District Court but his solicitor Jacqui Sharkey said there was “no issue” in relation to the offence.


Judge Paul Kelly said he had a letter from the 67-year-old apologising for his inability to attend and asking the court to accept his apologies. 

The actor, who lives at Cuil na Toinne, Magheraclogher, Bunbeg, Co. Donegal, said in a PS in the letter that he is no longer driving.

The judge gave him four months to pay the fine.
