Reinstated Irish bishop given new assignment

Catholic World News - August 16, 2013

An auxiliary bishop of Dublin whose resignation was refused by the Vatican has been appointed the vicar for clergy in the archdiocese.

Bishop Eamonn Walsh had not had a formal assignment since he submitted his resignation in December 2009. The Vatican decision to refuse that resignation was generally interpreted as a rebuke to Archbishop Diarmuid Martin, the Irish Catholic notes. Bishop Walsh, along with another auxiliary, Bishop Ray Field, had been pushed to resign as the archbishop sought to break ties with previous archdiocesan leadership in the wake of sex-abuse complaints. The archbishop was then forced to acknowledge that the auxiliary bishops, who had not been directly involved in any misconduct, had been reinstated.
