    Lads, lads, will yis all squash up to the front and to the middle of the aisle to make it look like there’s a proper crowd here and not the embarrassingly few who came.

    It’ looks like everyone booked WFOM tix to go to the Croker gig.

    All those nuns smiling gives me the horrors. On the lower end of the abuse scale, the presentation nuns displayed a range of weapons; the 3 inch wide leather slapper, the 0,5 inch whip and (after the Capital Punishment Ban), the smack on the palms while on the knees saying the rosary. The latter punishment was particularly poignant as I was receiving it for reporting the curate priest (Father Brown) rubbing his hands up my skirt in cookery class during a photo. I had made a song about him, with his antics, and was suspended for two weeks for disrespect to the Church.

      In fairness it was a brilliant song called ‘Knees Up Father Brown”, had four verses, which everyone sang. Beautiful times.
