Little Bernie by Simon Mitchell

Bernadette doesn't care if God says Priests can't have girlfriends. She loves Father Paul and that's that. Problem is, she's not the only one.

    Great short with added bite! Most likely based on the early life of the great John Rooney.

    Like to hear more of little Bernie, I think she would do well on my show, with the boys.

    Raised a little giggle, but also made me think back to that idolisation of authority, that first little disillusionment, and when do we stop biting back? A lot to enjoy from a little vignette.

    Very good, Simon. You have seemingly picked up a lot about the Catholic Church from Greg and Father Ted (oh, and the Ducie of course).

    Great stuff Mr. Mitchell. Poignant, funny, well-written and easy to visualise. Damn - you one talented man.
