So finally, the Bishop of Limerick has gone…
Update: No one turned up for either the Irish church or the Vatican when the BBC’s World at One interviewed Colm O’Gorman just now… Not surprising… O’Gorman pointed out that as Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of Faith he would have been all over this at the time it was all happening… Without saying it out loud, he implied that if the Bishop of Limerick had to resign for lack of due care, then what about the man at the top who also knew but did not do anything to put it to an end???
