Confirmation Irish-style

A boy making his Confirmation somewhere in Ireland is asked by a relative what happens at Confirmation.

He replies: "You get a mobile phone."

He is then asked to say the Lord's Prayer/Our Father. He is unable to say even the first line of the prayer.

The boy is then quizzed as to what happened at the ceremony. He replies: "I fell asleep".

But it was also noted by an adult, who attended the liturgy, that the presiding bishop was so boring that other clerics attending nearly nodded off too.

Catholic education in Irish Catholic schools?
