As cities go, Edinburgh is pretty class, however now that a new Irish bar has unveiled an incredible Father Ted mural tribute, we really, really want to go.
Malones opened on Saturday, January 27, with a massive 28 metre mural depiction of the classic Irish comedy taking centre stage, painted by artist Chris Rutterford.
From Eoin McLove and Bishop Brennan to Pat Mustard and Father 'Tell him to feck off' Damo, all the greats are in there, as well as the main clan. Fans will love the references to classic moments like the priests getting lost in the lingerie section and Bishop Brennan getting a kick up the arse.
These are brilliant! (Pics: Facebook/ Chris Rutterford)

Chris Rutterford, who has produced a lot or murals over the years told The Scotsman.
When we decided to go with the Father Ted theme for the staircase I really felt we were on holy ground – it’s one of the funniest shows there’s ever been. I love it.
Having a few drinks surrounded by some of the most memorable faces from '90s TV sounds like the perfect excuse for a weekend away. But c'mere, don't forget to wear your blue jumper (hardcore Father Ted fans will know).
