Father Ted Was Fiction, Right...?

Most days I'm proud to be Irish.

Some days I'm not...


It has been 14 years since her last major apparition in Ireland, but the Virgin Mary is back and this time in the lowly form of a tree stump in Limerick...

This time more than 2,000 people have signed a petition to prevent the stump’s removal, while hundreds of worshippers have been gathering to recite decades of the rosary and to light candles. Nightly prayer vigils are being held.


At least there's one sensible person down in Limerick though:

Asked what he saw in the stump Mr Reddin replied: ”I see it as the grain of a tree myself.”
