TODAY IS ASH Wednesday, which marks the start of the 40-day Lenten period. Once upon a time, in predominately Catholic Ireland, the tradition of “giving up” some luxury or indulgence from now until Easter Sunday was strictly observed.

Poll Results:

No (1619)
Yes, for other reasons (650)
Yes, for religious reasons (494)
