Interesting interview with Neil McEndoo, an Anglican minister in Dublin who is upbeat about the future of his church in the Republic. Keith Lynch writes: “in 2002, the number of people who identified themselves as part of the Church of Ireland increased for the first time since its establishment here. With a total of 115,611 people the Church showed an increase of almost 27,000 since the 1991 census”. Presbyterian congregations are also thought to be on the rise.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
