Statement by Cardinal Seán Brady, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, on the appointment of Archbishop Dermot Clifford as Apostolic Administrator to the Diocese of Cloyne
Pope Benedict XVI has been asked by Bishop John Magee to appoint an Apostolic Administrator to the Diocese of Cloyne. The decision of the Holy Father to grant that request is an indication of the importance which the Church gives to safeguarding children and caring for the needs of victims. I wish Archbishop Clifford well as he takes on the administration of the Diocese of Cloyne.
