Major reforms proposed in the Catholic Church in Ireland won't make any difference.
That's according to Newstalk Breakfast host Shane Coleman, who was responding to a new document demanding big changes in the church here.
It wants to see changes in attitudes towards women, LGBT+ people, those who are divorced and single parents.
The document, which has been sent from Dublin to Rome, also wants to see an end to the mandatory celibacy rule for priests.
Former President Mary McAleese has described it as "explosive, life altering, dogma altering, church altering".
But Shane doesn't see the changes coming.
"I don't think they will happen because Ireland is a drop in the ocean.
"The church's big focus now is Latin America and Africa.
"If you're looking at it in a corporate way, that's its growth area".
And he believes even if they were implemented, it's unlikely to make a big difference.
"I don't think, even if you were to introduce those changes to Ireland, I don't think it would make a huge difference to the church in Ireland.
"I'm not including Mary McAleese in this, but a lot of the people calling for reforms of the church are people who are probably agnostic or atheist.
"I think there should be women priests, I think they should change their views on certain issues.
"But I'm not sure it would make any difference to the church here".
