Bishop must go

Sir -- It's time for Martin Drennan, the Bishop of Galway, to resign. He was named in the Murphy report. I believe he will be forced to resign in the next few days or weeks, as sure as night follows day.

By waiting and hanging on and failing to accept responsibility, he is letting down the people in his diocese, the survivors of abuse and the family of the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland. He failed to act over many years or to respond properly to criminal acts against children. Has he yet said he was sorry for not doing his duty in the eyes of God? I have only a few words to say to Bishop Drennan.

In God's name, man, go now.
