Honour for Wilde not appropriate

DUBLIN Council's proposal for the public to submit ideas on an appropriate change of name for Archbishop Dermot Ryan park in Merrion Square following criticism in the Murphy Report of Dr Ryan's handling of clerical sex abuse has received overwhelming public support.

Advertisements by council elicited some 567 responses and only 13 of these expressed a desire to retain the current name.

By far the most popular alternative name was Oscar Wilde Park.
