CORRECTIONS AND CLARIFICATIONS

 

A report headed "Bishop to answer allegations at Wexford press conference today" in yesterday's editions Father Thaddeus Doyle, a Wexford priest, had stated that it might have been better if Bishop Comiskey had returned to the diocese after the confirmation period. Father Doyle did not so state. As the report went on to quote, Father Doyle in fact said: "It is my view that when Bishop Comiskey's return was delayed, and especially when it became obvious that some parents had objections, a decision should have been taken that Bishop Comiskey took a break from confirmations until Easter." Father Doyle points out that he also said: "Bishop Comiskey is back, thank God."
