Small, Far Away Day, the fictitious July 19 holiday from Irish sitcom Father Ted, is nearly upon us and Deliveroo is celebrating this rejoiceful occasion by partnering with Sano Pizza in Temple Bar to bring a miniature food menu exclusively to Deliveroo. 

The holiday became a reality on social media years after the episode originally aired. In it, Father Ted and Father Dougal went on a holiday in a caravan. During their time, Ted struggles to explain to Dougal the difference between the concepts of ‘small’, and ‘far away’.

Although Dougal struggles with this concept, Deliveroo does not, and these delicious treats are living proof of it. The exclusive to Deliveroo menu consists of a holy selection between far away (large) and small (mini) pizzas:

Marinara – Mini (€4) / Large (€7)

Margherita – Mini (€4.50) / Large (€8.90)

Diavola – Mini (€5) / Large (€9.90)

Joe Groves from Deliveroo said, “We are thrilled to be partnering up with the heavenly Sano Pizza, celebrating one of the greatest sitcom series of all time.

“While we do offer small foods, as can be seen, Deliveroo is never far away, with delicious meals delivered straight to your doorstep in thirty minutes or less,” he added. 

The hilarious ‘small, far away’ scene has gone down in history as one of the best one-liners of any sitcom, and despite the show being over twenty years old, the scene from the episode ‘Hell’ is fondly remembered today as TV gold in Ireland and the UK.

Sano Pizza’s faithful miniature menu will be available exclusively on the Deliveroo app or website for one day only on Friday, July 19. 

Ahh, go on, go on, go on, go on…

Former Father Ted star and all-round comedic legend Ardal O'Hanlon is set to join Derry Girls season two.

As a key character in one of Ireland's most hilarious TV shows, Father Dougal McGuire, we're over the moon to see him join the latest brilliant Irish comedy series.

Derry Girls was first released on Channel 4 back in January of 2018 and quickly became one of the most watched show in Northern Ireland's history.

The show, which is based in Northern Ireland and follows a group of school friends who get up to mischief during The Troubles, with hilarious results.

It snagged Best Comedy at the IFTA Gala Television Awards and Lisa McGee took home the gong for Best Writer for Comedy/Soap after creating the absolute gem.

Soon after the show ended, it was publicised that a second series of the show had been commissioned, and today the news broke that Ardal O'Hanlon will be joining the cast.

A release from Channel 4 claims that the Monaghan native will play the role of; “Eamonn, the awkward, middle-aged mummy’s boy of the Quinn/McCool extended family”.

Saoirse-Monica Jackson, who plays Erin Quinn spoke about the actor in an interview with RadioTimes“Ardal O’Hanlon joins our family this year, which is brilliant.” ​​

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Claire, says that the character of Eamonn is “a real Irish stereotype” – but he’s “not a priest”. “I think it’s something that everybody will recognise, and he completely gets it so on the money,” she added.

“It was really surreal, just looking at him, because he’s such an iconic figure in Ireland, and he’s such a lovely man. He’s so good in it," Coughlan continued.

“There’s a scene where it gets quite physical, and Lisa McGee came over. She was like, "Don’t bully Ardal". And we were like, "We’re not bullying him, he’s like a national treasure!" ‘Cause we had to like go for it in the scene.”

Thank the Derry Gods, the show returns to our screens next month, and we finally got a sneak peak when Channel 4 released the trailer for season two a few days ago. It's gonna be pure gas, we cannot WAIT.
