One Direction More Important Than God? Parents Want Communion Day Rescheduled Due To A 1D Concert Conflict!
Holy shizz! 1D is clearly holier than thou!
The primary school Raheen Gaelscoil in Limerick city have about 30 pupils set to receive their First Communion in May of 2014 which is definitely super exciting for those children and their families!
But in a spot of bad luck, a number of students also possess close-to-holy One Direction tickets that is set to occur on that same date, and some parents wanted the date of the communion changed.
So a vote was set to ALL of the parents if they would like to change the date, and the final conclusion was a resounding NO to changing the date!
Not only that but a lot of parents were super upset at the "disrespect shown to the blessed sacrament" in the request of a date change in the first place!
"Further to requests from a small number of parents to change the planned date of May 24 next for the reception of Holy Communion for the first time for our 2nd Class (Year Two) pupils, Gaelscoil an Ráithín, in order to reach the fairest outcome for all concerned, balloted parents overnight on this matter. The result of that ballot has been overwhelmingly in favour of retaining the original date. Staff, parents and children of Gaelscoil an Ráithín look forward to preparing for this very special celebration next May."
Now we can understand both sides of this issue! For parents of children that aren't going to the concert, why should they reschedule their plans? Their kids aren't missing out!
And for parents that do have the tickets - we can understand their side, too. Those tickets were probably super expensive!
Luckily for the parents that did buy the tickets, the concert is totally sold out, and the resale price of these tickets is almost double what the original price was!
We're sure 1D will come back to Dublin at some point, so it isn't like this is the last chance to see the boy band!
Although we wouldn't want to be in those parents' position as they try and explain to their children how they're going to miss out on that concert! That doesn't sound fun at all!
