We have it on good authority that several Parishioners have approached a local betting office in Bray to see if they will take odds on the hearing on October 27 in Wicklow.
They were looking for odds on
1. Reverend Blue Jeans aka Fr. Larry White turning up IN HIS ROMAN COLLAR masquerading as a Priest
GOING NATIVE in his Bertie style anorak and golfing shirt
2. What size legal team will he need to extricate him from the hole he has dug for himself in the last 4 years?
Will it take a Senior AND Junior Counsel AND 1 or 2 Solicitors - MONEY NO OBJECT ROLL IN THE LEGAL EAGLES AFTER ALL THE CHURCH VIA THEIR INSURANCE (PREMIUMS PAID FOR BY PARISHIONERS) ARE PAYING HIS FEES?
3. How many SUPPORTERS will he require and have present like at the original hearing to PROP HIM UP as he needs A LARGE AUDIENCE being used to getting the pews full at Mass (or trying to!)?
Betting is on NONE -v- nearest and dearest family brother and sisters, sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, perhaps this time an added assortment of nieces and nephews, golfing buddies, fan club members, cronies, the Church choir maybe to SING HIS PRAISES, his "BEST" friend Sr. Peggy McArdle (of CD fame - go to Parish in Bray Update 24), "next" best friend SIR BOB (ex PRIEST who was there at 2 previous hearings sitting next to him (TO HOLD HIM STRAIGHT IN THE CHAIR LEST HE SHOULD KEEL OVER) and perhaps an assortment of rent-a-crowd.
