Nuns (including one pregnant one) protest Fifty Shades screenings in Sligo and Reading

IT WAS ONLY a matter of time before a Father Ted style protest appeared outside a cinema showing Fifty Shades, and yesterday it was the Wexford Omniplex in Drinagh which took the honours.

Now, a group of Sligo nuns have taken it upon themselves to say “down with this sort of thing” and “careful now” at the carry on of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Sister Patricia thought it was fierce.
