Papal nuncio in Ireland destined for new assignment?

Catholic World News - July 29, 2011

The Holy See's representative in Ireland, who was recalled to Rome this week in a display of the Vatican's dismay over Irish political leaders' attacks on the Church, will not be returning to Ireland, according to several news accounts in Dublin.

Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza, who has been apostolic nuncio in Ireland since 2008, will be reassigned as nuncio in the Czech Republic. Sources in the Czech foreign ministry told Irish reporters that the groundwork for Archbishop Leanza's new assignment had been laid in June--prior to the outbreak of controversy in Dublin that led to his recall.
