Eoin Pól a Dó: Deireadh le ré an mheánaoisigh - LE CATHAL Ó MURCHÚ

14 April 2005

Ní féidir a shéanadh gur fíorcheannaire a bhí i Karol Wojtyla - an pápa ar feadh 27 bliain a thug Eoin Pól a Dó air féin - is é sin ceannaire a d'eascraigh ón eite is coimeádaí don eaglais chaitliceach. Nuair a toghadh é i 1978, is fíorbheagán a cheap roimhe sin go raibh sé le bheith an 263ú comharba ar Naomh Peadar. Ó deireadh na gCaogadaí ar aghaidh go dtí pápacht Eoin Pól a Dó, bhí coimhlint ollmhór ar siúl sa Vatacáin idir lucht coimeádaigh na heaglaise agus lucht leasaithe a theastaigh uathu an eaglais a tharraingt isteach san fhichiú aois.

Rule 42 - Pride and Prejudice

14 April 2005

I am at a stage in life where I have very few prejudices left. I have gone drinking with members of the Progressive Democrats. I have listened to U2 with only a nervous twitch to reveal my feelings towards Bobo (sic). I have listened politely while people from Kildare talk about football. I have read Roddy Doyle. I even nod along to Ireland's Call. Free article
