Irish Logic at Work

A priest visiting a remote island off Connemara asked the inhabitants how long had it been since they had been to confession. They replied that it must be four years since a priest last visited. The priest asked, “Why didn’t you go to the mainland?” To which Seamus replied, “Father, the sea is very rough, and our one boat is very old. So, if it’s only venial sins we have to confess, it’s not worth the bother and if they’re mortal sins, it’s not worth the risk.”
