12 tweets about the Trócaire Box only Irish people will understand

Stealing money from the Trocaire Box for curry chips *hangs head in shame*

IT’S THAT TIME of year again, everyone…

1. Admit it — you’ve dipped into the Trócaire Box now and again

2. But only in emergencies! Like when you had to buy curry chips.

3. Or sweets.

4. Or Panini stickers.

5. And, okay, maybe you took money from it for the bus ONCE WHEN YOU WERE IN A RUSH.

6. And you lived in fear of your Mam and Dad finding out.

*runs up to bedroom*

7. Even though you know it’s all for a good cause, you can quickly come to resent it a little bit…

8. It’s always there… sitting on the shelf… making you feel guilty.

*empties pockets*

9. Or taunting poor, innocent pups.

10. It did inspire some fairly good playground banter, though.

11. And Cavan jokes.

(Sorry, Cavan friends.)

12. So, Happy Lent, everyone. Promise you’ll remember to hand the box in this year, yeah?

Unless you want to go to hell, that is.
