How to get to heaven from Ireland

From a teacher...

I was testing children in my Dublin Sunday school class to see if they understood the concept of getting to heaven. I asked  them, 'If I sold my house and my car, had a big garage sale and gave all my  money to the church, would that get me into heaven?'

'NO!' the  children answered. 


'If I cleaned the church every day, mowed  the garden,
and kept everything tidy, would that get me into  heaven?'

Again, the answer was 'NO!' By now I was starting to  smile.

'Well, then, if I was kind to animals and gave sweets to all the  children, and loved my husband, would that get me into heaven?

Again, they all answered 'NO!'. I was just bursting with pride  for them.

 
I continued, ' Then how can I get into heaven?'

A six  year-old boy shouted out: " YUV GOTTA BE FOOKN' DEAD...."

"It's a curious  race, the Irish."

That is beyond hysterical! Thanks for such a hearty laugh so early in the day. Let it be said that most Irishmen would also say that leaving Ireland to go to Heaven in a downgrade in accommodations.
