Irish primate released from hospital

Catholic World News - April 14, 2010

Cardinal Sean Brady, the Primate of All Ireland, has returned home after being hospitalized briefly on April 13. The Irish prelate was admitted to Craigavon Area Hospital on Monday when he fell ill during a Confirmation ceremony. After tests he was released, with doctor's orders to rest at his residence.

Cardinal Brady, who is 70 years old, has been under pressure to resign because of the sex-abuse scandal in Ireland. He has conceded that he is considering that possibility, and will address it by Pentecost Sunday.
