The four archbishops of Ireland are due to meet the Government in the next while in relation to the public ban on worship.

In their letter to Government, dated 8th October, Archbishops Eamon and Diarmuid Martin, Michael Neary and Kieran O’Reilly said that while they “fully support” the guidance of the public health authorities, they wished to engage constructively with the civil authorities to “ensure that our people have continued access to the support of Mass and the Sacraments and essential spiritual nourishment for these challenging times”.

Maria Steen is a barrister, and a member of the Iona Institute joined Mark Cagney to discuss.
