5 March 1998

There is, apparently, no debate within RTÉ about the Angelus. Neither, it seems, is there any debate within the Church of Ireland about the Angelus.

If RTÉ, premier purveyor of pealing prayer calls, and Archbishop Eames, spokesperson for all the rest of the country who are not normally associated with the Bells, don't want to talk about it, why should we? Yet we should. In a pluralist state the bells should toll for all of us, not just some. Free article

Dunloy have little to cheer about after their exit from the All-Ireland Club Championship in Mullingar. Spirits won't be helped by the fact the club are also banned from the competiton next year following their supporters' misbehaviour at the Ulster final. With 20 minutes to go the Antrim side were in the lead by a point and had two more men after Galway's Sarfield's lost Donal Keane and Michael Ward in the second half.
