Enniskerry housewife Kate O’Meara today confirmed that popular parish priest ‘Father Mike’ O’Connell, who won’t say how he intends to vote in the upcoming referendum, is an ‘absolute scream!‘
O’Meara who was earlier this year invited to become more involved in parish activities by the dynamic young cleric, smirked knowingly, as she said, “You’d never find one of the other crowd, refusing to say how they’re going to vote”.
In the course of a wide ranging, hard hitting and completely exclusive interview with CatMelodeonNews which was tightly embargoed until now, the handsome PP smiled broadly but repeatedly refused to clarify his voting intentions.
However when bluntly asked if he was ‘refusing to say he would be voting No,’ he held up his hands and said, ‘Ask me one more time’.
“I’ll be voting in line with my Christian conscience,” he clarified, “and the teachings of Pope Francis & the Catholic church”.
“Now,” he said rubbing his hands together briskly, “I’m afraid that’s all you’re going to get out of me!”
Then he chuckled and winked the twinkly eye.
With that, O’Meara laughed so loud that even ‘Father Mike’ was momentarily startled.
