Bishop Murray to speak at Limerick cathedral

Bishop Donal Murray will address church-goers in Limerick as speculation intensifies that he has offered his resignation.

The under-fire bishop has been under intense pressure to quit after his mishandling of allegations was branded inexcusable by an inquiry into paedophile priests and church cover-ups in the Dublin Archdiocese.

His spokesman said he will speak at a gathering in St John's Cathedral in Limerick.

The bishop has been in Rome for almost two weeks holding a series of meetings with senior Vatican officials on his future.
