CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin has distanced himself from the decision not to allow former Irish President Mary McAleese to speak at a Vatican conference. “Neither Archbishop Martin nor his offices were consulted by the Vatican in relation to this matter,” the Dublin archdiocese announced in a press statement. The statement went on to emphasize that Archbishop Martin had guaranteed this year’s World Meeting of Families, which will be held in Dublin “will be an inclusive event.”
