Dick Byrne is Ted's equivalent and nemesis on Rugged Island. He lives with fellow priests Cyril MacDuff and Jim Johnson and their housekeeper.


  • He is a Scrabble fan which is how his feud with Ted Crilly supposedly began as he once got all his tiles to spell out "Useless priest can't say Mass".
  • He is notoriously homophobic as claimed by Ted when he once had to kiss Cyril on the cheek as a forfeit for losing a bet with Ted.
