Stupidest people in Ireland hold convention

Limerick NewsWire Blog Archive Virgin Mary image ‘appears’ on tree in Rathkeale - locals

Quote:
Local radio is reporting that residents in the west Limerick town of Rathkeale say an “outline” of the Virgin Mary has allegedly appeared on a tree in church grounds in the town.

The report says a number of people “noticed the outline of the Blessed Virgin in a tree cut down as part of a cleanup operation at a church” on Monday.

Live95FM says a large crowd had gathered at St. Mary’s church Monday night with a “steady flow of people today as the news spreads”.

A chairman of the local community council told local radio in an interview, “Certainly there was a figure of a lady, it was eerie looking i’ll be honest with you”, “It’s hard to describe it really; you’d nearly want to see it”.


NEW DETAILS
Locals in the area have now signed a petition preventing the removal of the tree from the grounds of the church with some saying it’s a ‘divine intervention’.
Where's Oliver Cromwell when you need him?

Sounds almost like something out of a Flann O'Brien novel.

I do hope Bono's okay, though.

The bit about Cromwell was a bad taste joke.

But the more I see and hear religionists in action, the more I embrace rational thought instead. I agree that the tree should probably be left there, it's good for tourism apparently.

I can understand this. I think, it would be much more difficult for American Catholics, to except it as well. Though, I feel if the Irish should be able to pray, at a place, they deem holy. 'Tis fine, unless of course, those beliefs are forced upon others. And that would be wrong.
