We dealt with a client recently who first of all asked for a clock for a friend celebrating 50 years a priest and she thought the gothic theme would be appropriate. She had it made bigger than usual, at least one and a half times bigger.
When she presented the priest with the clock he was really delighted and loved it so much that she decided that her gay friends, who were getting married soon thereafter, could equally be presented with the same type of clock as a wedding gift.
I just thought it was so weird that the same present was given to a gay couple getting married and a priest celebrating 50 years a priest. It just reflects the changing face of Ireland.
