In Ireland, Flamenca, children have their first communion pre-teens.

Hi Irishcelticgirl,

In the photo that Flamenca posted Donal's just a little guy- looks like a more formal pic than just any Sunday. He's too young there for it to be Confirmation. My daughter's first communion was when she was around 9 or 10, that's here in the U.S., and that would have been the early 1990's- but the age at which First Communion happens has more to do with Cannon Law than the local diocese's rules, The Church makes those rules and all Catholics pretty much follow them around the world, and it changes with the times. My mom is up there in years, she's in a nursing home now, but she was barely old enough to understand the concept for her first communion- probably around six years old- that would have been in the 1930's. Nowadays the thinking is the child is supposed to be old enough to grasp the philosophy behind it, past the "age of reason" or "age of discretion."

That photo looks to be taken around the same time as the other picture Flamenca posted of Donal and Rory- the one where Donal is wearing a cowboy costume. Their mother is standing with them. And Flamenca, if you're reading this, I think maybe I figured out why Rory doesn't look all that pleased there- I bet that cowboy outfit used to be Rory's but he outgrew it- so little brother got to wear it instead! Pure speculation on my part ;)

Ladies, I'll have to take your word for it. I haven't even been christened so I don't know for sure ;) I was actively raised atheist. I find the whole ritual thing amusingly archaic like morris dancing :lol: Sorry if I've offended anyone ... If you're wondering what Rory made of that, he was slightly surprised but not afraid of my views. Regarding the Roy Rogers outfit, I think you're probably right! I reckon it probably was Rory's and he outgrew it, then it became Donal's 8-)

Can only speak for myself- I'm not offended at all, the world would be a boring place if everyone thought and believed the same. And, as a Catholic myself I can say most the Catholics I know find a fair amount of humor in our practices, truth be told- some of the funniest jokes I've ever heard were about that very topic. ["archaic like morris dancing" confused about the reference though. :? Morris like the cat? or ???] I just thought the photos were adorable, and the (slightly jealous?) look on Rory's face is cute. :D

PS enjoy the festival in Ballyshannon (you who are lucky enough to go)

Addendum-
I just google'd it, Morris Dance- some kind of English folk dance. :oops: Learned something new :roll:

Lou,
Wonderful photos! :D :D :D :D I especially like the second one- looks like Rory is holding a rainbow in his hands. It would have been something to see Taste in the beginning like that.
