Letters to the Editor

The unprecedented public intervention on abortion by Sabina Higgins raises important concerns.

I know personally of the quiet and constructive work for cross-border and cross-community relations by Martin McAleese while his spouse Mary was President of Ireland.

But I am at a loss to recall even one occasion when he somehow felt entitled to preach or advocate in public - either about that or about anything else - much less about any highly contentious and current political debates.
