Someone in Galway is actually selling this church confession box


WHEN YOU’RE SEARCHING around online for some antiques that would make your gaff stand out from the rest, there are some you won’t expect to see.

Like a full Catholic church confession box.

Well, someone from Galway is selling one on Adverts

It was originally put up on the site last year, but two days ago it was renewed and back on the market.

Imagine this sitting around the house

“Sure let’s talk about it in the confession box”

It’s being sold at the low low price of €550 – although it would be one of the more extravagant gag purchases in fairness.

One of the comments underneath wonders why they’re even bothering to sell it:

Why don’t you start up receiving confessions yourself?

Not a bad plan with a mint condition confession box like this

He also revealed how he came upon the box in the first place:

As a builder, we were doing repairs on a church and when the contract was completed, the parish priest asked me to remove it, as it was of no further use in the church.

The only extra detail that is added by the seller is that the box is “wired for light”
