No Need To Quit Day Jobs

The three singing priests who’ve signed a £1 million record deal with Sony have been told there’s no need to quit their day jobs.

Father Martin O’Hagan, his brother Fr Eugene and their school friend Fr David Delargy, all from the Northern Ireland diocese of Down and Connor, reportedly have a special clause in their contract that means that parish duties come first at all times.

"Our parish works means a great deal to us. We are priests first and foremost. Our work will be at the heart of our plans," Father O’Hagen told the Irish Times.

The three priests, who were nicknamed "holy, holy, holy" in grade school, signed the deal on the steps of Westminster Cathedral in London.

They regularly perform classical music at liturgies and concerts and were brought to the record company’s attention by Liam Bradley, an Irish pop singer scouting for a singing priest for Sony. Any proceeds from the album will go to charity.
