Here is his speech on the report into child abuse by the catholic church. Soon after it we got rid of the Vatican's embassy in Ireland......It is a powerful speech.

And this is why and rightly so...

I totally need to visit Ireland.

I will meet you at the Airport......:-)

@ Robert - Thanks for that video. It ends asking that the faithful make the restoration of the faith in Ireland their life’s work. That is exactly the opposite of what many of us here have been doing for the last 20 years or so. We are winning. I am certain that the majority of those born since 2000 will be Atheists. I hardly know anybody that bothers with the Catholic Church anymore. It is meaningless to most people under 40.

Dude Ireland is one of my places to visit too! Trying to save up some money so in about couple of years I can go tour Europe. 

Good for the Irish Prime Minister to stick up for the constitution

I think he should present himself for communion, walk up, and as the priest reaches to place the host on his tongue he should close his mouth, turn and walk out.  It would be great to get that on video, very symbolic.
