Confession in Ballyer back in the day.

Confession in Ballyer back in the day.

 'Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It’s been 4 weeks since me last confession, I have been with a loose girl.'
 The Priest asks, 'Is that you, Paddy Gilford?'
 'Yeah, Father, it is.'
 'And who was the girl you were with?'
 'I can't tell yeh, Father, I don't want to ruin her reputation.'

 "Well, Paddy, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Holland?"
 'I cannot say.'
 'Was it Teresa Greene?'
 'I'll never tell.'
 'Was it Nelly Doyle?'
 'I'm sorry, but I cannot name her.'

 'Was it Cathy Murphy?'
 'My lips are sealed Father.
' 'Well then, was it Rosy O’Grady?'
 'Please, Father, I cannot tell you.'

 The priest sighs in frustration.

 'You're very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself.'

 Paddy walks back to his pew, and his friend Christy slides over and whispers,

 'What'd you get?'
 'Four month's vacation and five excellent Leads.'
