new archbishop of Dublin

By Jeff (articles ) | May 03, 2003

The Holy Father this morning appointed Archbishop Diarmuid Martin as coadjutor archbishop of Dublin. Archbishop Martin, formerly secretary of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, is now the Holy See's representative at UN offices in Geneva. He has represented the Holy See at various UN conferences, including the infamous 1994 Cairo conference.

The archbishop of Armagh is the primate of all Ireland and traditionally a cardinal. That changed in the consistory of 2001, when the Holy Father bypassed the primate and created Archbishop Connell of Dublin a cardinal instead. Archbishop Connell turned 77 this March.
