Actor Frank Kelly, the foul-mouthed priest Father Jack in the sitcom Father Ted, has died aged 77.
The Irish actor had a celebrated career on stage and on television. He spent years working as a subeditor at Irish newspapers before his first acting role, in The Italian Job in 1969, escorting Michael Caine’s character out of prison.

He continued to act in films right up to 2014 when he played Justice Cannon in Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie.

RIP Frank

Strange that he should die onthe 18th anniversary of Dermot Morgan's (Father Ted) death, can't believe it's that long ago. I never knew that he had actually trained as a barrister.
