There are times when you have to accept that something is just none of your business. That incident in Ennistymon, for instance. The Traveller claiming she was being turned away from a Catholic church, during a First Communion ceremony, because of her dress.

It wasn't a dress I'd wear myself, to be honest, but in the context of dresses as they're worn today, it certainly was not immodest. And, in the online video, the priest standing at the entrance to the church, ignoring the pleas of the woman - well, when a priest reminds you of a stony-faced bouncer outside a Temple Bar nightclub, that's not good.

Turn away, I tell myself, none of your business.
