Jim Johnson is an elderly priest who is the Rugged Island equivalent of Jack Hackett. He was portrayed by Irish actor Chris Curran.

Biography

He lives in the island's parochial house with Dick Byrne, Cyril MacDuff and their unnamed housekeeper.

He is first seen in the Series 1 episode "Competition Time" as a member of girl group The Supremes along with Dick Byrne and Cyril MacDuff as they enter a Stars in their Eyes competition.

His second and final appearance is in the Series 2 episode "Cigarettes and Alcohol and Rollerblading" when the Rugged Island priests pledge to give up their vices, only to have lied about doing so. They get their comeuppance when Sister Assumpta is sent to Rugged Island to punish them after Ted and Dougal discovered that they had broken their vows.

Trivia
