CWN Editor's Note: Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Miche├íl Martin said that he does “not approve” of plans to hold First Communion and Confirmation ceremonies despite government lockdown restrictions. Archbishop Dermot Farrell of Dublin described the restrictions as “perplexing, as no such prohibitions are applied to other events.”

According to the report, five of the nation’s 22 bishops are “set to defy” the restrictions.
