In the days af the rebellion against the black and tans, members of the pre-IRA army would go from Sunday Mass to Sunday Mass to speak to the the parishioners (no pun intended)to explain the rebel cause and to raise money for guns and ammo. Pat Briscoe, later to be elected the first Jewish mayor of Dublin, was in the group of rebels about to enter a RC church: "D'ye want me to go in wi' ye boys?" he asked. "Better not Pat, we have enough problem trying to explain the rebellion, with having to explain you too!"
