Irish Priest Chases Away Attackers by ‘Boring Them’

If your idea of defending your home doesn’t involve a firearm or a baseball bat, take a cue from Father Arthur O’Neill.

Early Sunday morning, the Dublin priest woke to the sight of two burglars, one of whom was pointing a gun at his head.

The men kept asking where O’Neill had hidden the money, but he kept mum. Well, not mum, exactly: He joked afterwards that he was able to make them leave empty-handed by “boring them” away with quotes from the sermon he’d prepared.

Let’s just call it a harrowing ordeal for both parties.
