Mrs Doyle, the slightly weird and ever so put upon tea lady in Channel 4 comedy series Father Ted, is to be the new face of the Revenue’s bid to promote self assessment.
Hector the tax inspector, whom she replaces, will be sorely missed at Accountancy Age, where he was once voted Personality of the Year. Only time will tell whether Mrs Doyle will have such a huge impact.
That said, Mrs Doyle, who is habitually baking cakes for the priests on Craggy Island, has already had one effect at the Revenue. The quality of refreshment, as shown at Monday’s press conference, has clearly risen.
Lemon drizzle cake sat beside banana and walnut slice, which accompanied date and coconut loaf, which was only out-done by the pecan and maple, and cinnamon raisin pastries.
Sad to say, but the cakes outshone the ads.
