Dublin's archbishop raps tenor of political campaigns
Catholic World News - February 07, 2011
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin has scold Irish politicians for “criticism and mud-slinging” in this year’s election campaigns, and called for a more thoughtful approach to the nation’s challenges.
"We stand at an important moment regarding the future of our Irish society," the archbishop said. In light of pressing economic problems, he said, politicians should promote ways to help those in need and construct “a caring society.”
