An Irish welcome for group of women priests

 

Sir, – It was wonderful to read of an Irish woman, Bridget Mary Meehan, who is both an ordained priest and bishop in the 230-strong worldwide Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests, being welcomed back to Ireland (News, August 8th) Maybe the Irish hierarchy might welcome this organisation to train our aspiring priests in Maynooth and Rome. – Yours, etc,
