Invitation to Cardinal is an insult to survivors

CARDINAL Sean Brady, the Irish Primate, has been officially invited to attend the wedding of Prince William Windsor and Kate Middleton as an honoured guest.

He was one of three priests who failed to report incidents of child sex abuse by Fr Brendan Smyth to civil authorities. Smyth went on to assault and harm many more children.

The invitation to this cleric wounds survivors and sends a clear message that his behaviour is acceptable to the British monarchy and the British establishment.
