Irish group rallies support to reopen embassy at Vatican

Catholic World News - January 19, 2012

An Irish group is effectively putting pressure on the country’s legislators to reopen the Irish embassy at the Holy See.

The group, Ireland Stand Up, drew one-third of the members of the Irish parliament to participate in a 5-hour meeting on January 18, at which they made their case for the Irish embassy at the Vatican.

The Irish government announced last year that it would close the embassy. Although the move was explained as a cost-cutting measure, it came at a time of unusual diplomatic tension between Dublin and Rome.
