This Leaving Cert student celebrated finishing his English exam with a gas tattoo

The only acceptable reaction to your favourite poet appearing on the paper.

EARLIER THIS WEEK, on the night before the English Paper 2 exam, Leaving Cert student Adam O’Sullivan tweeted these fateful words:

‘Durcan’ refers to the Irish poet Paul Durcan, who did indeed come up in the exam the next day.

Adam’s promise was retweeted widely the night before the paper, and people wondered if he intended to keep it. Well, he did.

He got the tattoo yesterday, and sent photographic evidence of it to the Twitter account @LeavingCert2016:

The little heart and all!

His dad reacted with curiosity…

…But everyone else has hailed him a hero.

Adam, though? He just thinks it’s hilarious.

Sully you mad yoke. What’s next? A full sleeve dedicated to Maths Paper 1?
