Dermot Morgan died 20 years ago today

Wow...where does the time go?

Mad, Ted.

I’ll always remember listening to 2fm that Sunday afternoon (it was either Aidan Leonard or Michael Cahill dj-ing) when they broke the news - so shocking.

Are we sure he didn't just drink an entire bottle of Dreamy Sleepy Nighty Snoozy Snooze?

He left behind a great body of work and some very happy memories.

What would he have had to say in the last 20 years?

Yep remember where I was too. In my dad's car on way back from playing malahide in a rugby match. Shocked he was such an institution at the time. At least we won the match.

I watch father Ted religiously if it's on tv, pardon the pun.

Apt it snows on his anniversary..

"It's beginning to snow again. The flakes, silver and dark, are falling obliquely against the lamplight. It's probably falling all over the island; on the central plain, on the treeless hills, falling softly upon the graveyards, upon the crosses and headstones, upon all the living and the dead..."

I'd only known him for Fr Ted, but I remember seeing him on the Late Late just before his death and he was hilarious!

That very last scene of the last episode where the light goes off in the parochial house and Dougal says "Night Ted" always makes me a bit

It is difficult to believe it is twenty years.
One day when driving to work at 7am I saw him walking in Donnybrook. He was wearing sunglasses but that was no disguise.
My sister was related to him, and he was at a family funeral.
When with my sister I met his mother a few times and she was lovely, very amusing and intelligent.
He was one of the best Irishmen ever imo.
