    Default Fianna Fail Church Gate Collection

    FF must have a death wish at the moment! They actually had the cheek to stand outside churches yesterday, with buckets, to collect money for FF!

    This was the ONLY topic on everybody's lips today in my workplace! We couldnt believe that FF had the neck to ask people for money!

    Saw them outside gates of Ratoath church Saturday evening; it was the most bizarre sight for some time, hanging around and expecting like it was their god given right to take from people. Haven't they taken enough already?!

    Well.....I suppose if you're the type of person who supports a religion that thought covering up child rape was ok, then you'd probably have no problem giving money to FF

    Does anyone know what they're going to do with the church gates they collected?

    Ummmmmmmmmmmmm.

    All your workmates newly converted to Catholicism?

    The three largest parties do Church Gate collections every year. They do so in times of economic hardship, or Esat scandals, or Hep C crises, or whatever.

    Am in an area where the local Cumann has decided not to do it in recent years, because it's a bit rich in these times, so they hand the day over to whoever else wants it.
