RTÉ ringing the changes on Angelus
For whom the bell tolls? That was the innocuous question RTÉ put to people of all faiths and none.
The national broadcaster is seeking to update the Angelus, which has been ringing down the airwaves since 1950.
But it seems the 18 peals that once signalled a call to prayer, and now in a more secular age are said to denote a pause for reflection, are not necessarily seen as a blessing by all.
