I thought this was a more original hoax than the usual Bin Laden ones that have circulated recently. A friend of mine who lives in the diocese and co-incidentaly has the same name as the priest told me somebody rang up requesting the mass and the old lady who is a bit….doddery just took it down without question
A NOTICE of a Mass to be celebrated in memory of Osama bin Laden this week in a Dublin Catholic church has been described as a hoax.
The Church of the Assumption in Howth, Co Dublin, published a parish newsletter yesterday carrying the notice regarding the Mass for the founder and spiritual figurehead of the al-Qaida terror network.
A list of Mass intentions for May 8 to 14 in the newsletter stated that Mass at 10am on Thursday would be for “Osama Bin Laden (Recently Deceased)”.
The newsletter was also posted on the church
