Papal nuncio in Ireland transferred to Czech Republic

Catholic World News - September 15, 2011

Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza, who has been serving as apostolic nuncio in Ireland, has been formally appointed nuncio to the Czech Republic.

Czech government officials had revealed in August that Archbishop Leanza would be the Pope’s new representative there. The appointment had been arranged earlier, but the archbishop’s move was delayed because of the diplomatic tensions that arose between Ireland and the Holy See in the wake of the Cloyne report. Archbishop Leanza remained at his post in Dublin until the Vatican’s response to that report had been delivered.
