A character in the British sitcom Father Ted
was based on her. The character, Niamh Connolly, played by Alted Images lead singer Claire Grogan, was a denim clad rock singer who had strong feminist views and a bit of an anti-Catholic slant, which put her in conflict with the central characters in Father Ted
who were Catholic priests. Sinead is actually a fan of the show, she even came to the recording of the Christmas Special. Arthur Matthews, one of the writers for Father Ted
, joked that the show probably had an effect on Sinead becoming a priest!
