Parents at a Limerick Gaelscoil are to be balloted on whether to change the date for first Holy Communion because it clashes with a One Direction concert.
At least three families are thought to have sought the change of date after they bought tickets for the gig in Croke Park on May 24th.
The Gaelscoil in Raheen yesterday informed parents they will be balloted on the issue after a public meeting became heated on the issue.
Children were yesterday sent home with notes advising parents that a ballot will now be taken amongst the 30 families who have children in the Holy Communion class.
Some parents had no principled objection to a change of date once there was proper justification.
