A second year Arts student in Trinity, has opted to sell part of their liver to cover the costs of going to this years Trinity Ball 2013.
With the line up just announced, this ambitious student – who is struggling to pay the increased fees and has no job prospects since he is doing Arts – decided to sign up for the operation that will bag him around €180. Enough for his ticket, a cheap rental suit and a bag of cans for the night.
Speaking about his decision, Conor O’Reilly commented exclusively to the Potato that:
Well, I’m not letting high fees stand in the way of me enjoying my time at college. It’s something I’ve thought long and hard about. I’m going to sell a small part of my liver to help pay for the ticket – and having a smaller liver will also make it easier for me to get locked off my tits, so it’s really an investment in my drinking that will save me money in the long term.
O’Reilly, who is your typical Trinity student trying to live up to the expectations of overambitious parents, will go under the knife in the middle of March and will hopefully be back on his feet in time for Trinity Ball which is on the 5th of April. Other’s are expected to follow suit and donate other organs, but will need to make it quick, as tickets are expected to sell out fast.
