Looks a flat 5'9 in Father Ted.

Rob, how likely is 5’9.25” for O’Hanlon?
Editor Rob
Might give it consideration.

Rob, in lieu of Ardal’s 177 listing, may he please be upgraded to 5’9.5”?

I feel that he is a strong 5’9” at the very least.

how about Pauline mclynne rob who played Mrs Doyle in father ted. she is listed 5ft 6 in some places but could look about 5ft 5 in the show. and she didn't have great posture in it either

I think we’re being a tad stingy with a flat 5’9” for O’Hanlon actually. On Death In Paradise he wears boots but even when hunching over, which his character does frequently on that show, O’Hanlon is still easily taller than 5’9” Tobi Bakare and sometimes even 5’10” Don Warrington. O’Hanlon is also consistently seemingly at least 5cm taller than 172cm Aude Legastelois. O’Hanlon also towers over 5’7.5” Danny John-Jules in photos, therefore I’d vote 5’9.5” for O’Hanlon at peak with military posture, maybe more 5’9” than 5’10”. On Father Ted, O’Hanlon also practices a hunched posture, I can believe Dermot Morgan was 5’11”.

No 5ft 9 is correct and dermot morgan may have been 5ft 11

He was basically my height when I stood next to him, and I'm about 178.5. He was in runners, and I was in shoes with about 2cm of heel, so that may have made a bit of difference, but I'd definitely put him above 5'9.

I actually met Morgan briefly a few weeks before he died (didn't get a picture unfortunately, Iphones didn't exist yet). He seemed close to 5ft11. I wouldn't argue with a 5ft10½ listing...not a short guy but I did expect him to be a lot taller.

Super nice guy and his death a few weeks later just floored me. He was like the Robin Williams of Irish comedy.

For Ardal 5'9" sounds right. I'd say 5'10.5 - 5'11" range for Dermot. I have the Father Ted Box set, in some scenes Dermot looks barely an inch taller than Ardal in others there looks to be at least 2" difference. Maybe you could do a page for him?

Yeah what would you guess for Dermot? I would say about 5'10.5".
Editor Rob
about that range is probably a fair shout

Rob, could you add the late Dermot Morgan (Ted)?

He was a bit taller than Ardal
