WATCH: Dublin Girl's Holy Communion sketch has audience in stitches
Emmie O'Neill from Cabra delivers hilarious Holy Communion sketch at the Helix, and the crowd absolutely love it. Written and performed originally by Martin Higgins and June Rogers.
A young Cabra girl's delivery of a piece of performance poetry in a Communion dress has gone viral.
Emmie O'Neill was encouraged to perform the sketch by her dance teacher and, although she hadn't previously acted, the young Dub proved herself to be the perfect candidate.
"Emmie's stage school teacher, Sonya Johnson from Gotta Dance Stage School, gave me the sketch in January and asked me what did I think of it for Emmie," Emmie's mother told Independent.ie.
"I seriously had my reservations because she's never done any acting, just dancing and singing.
"Myself and Philip couldn't get over her show in the helix, she got such an amazing reaction from the crowd. She had them in the palm of her hands and she loved every minute of it."
The video has been shared widely across social media sites, with hundreds commenting to express their delight.
"We can't thank everybody, but all their comments put a huge smile on Emmie's face. She's making her Communion on Sunday and this has made this week even more special."
