‘Stag do’ priests barred from pub

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SEVEN Catholic priests walk into a bar – and get asked to leave be­cause staff thought they were on a STAG DO.

It may sound like the be­gin­ning of a re­ally bad joke but it re­ally did hap­pen over the week­end for one cheery group of sem­i­nar­i­ans.

The priests were cel­e­brat­ing in Cardiff on Satur­day af­ter Father Peter McClaren was or­dained at the Cardiff Met­ro­pol­i­tan Cathe­dral of St David near Queen Street ear­lier that day.

They said: “On ar­rival, the bar­tender in­formed them that it was pol­icy not to grant en­try to fancy dress par­ties or stag ‘dos’.”

Af­ter sev­eral min­utes of try­ing to con­vince staff they were real priests, the men gave up and started to leave.

The land­lord then in­ter­vened and re­alised the er­ror, invit­ing the church­men back in.
