Billy Keane: I let good people down ... I strung up a flex and the plan was to jump off the chair into oblivion

THE email was to the point. Nuns must not wear long pants under their habits. I'm not sure what to do now. Tights, black tights, are acceptable under the rules, and what about the undergarments?

Last night, a woman told me how her uncle stole a long black double-gusset knickers from the clothes line of the Drishane nuns' holiday home back in west Kerry when he lost his football togs.

But do nuns wear underpants like we do? (By the way, the real nuns are all for it. One retired teacher told me she burnt her habit 35 years ago and it was the best thing she ever did.)
