Cardinal speaks out about abuse

Cardinal Cormac Murphy O'Connor told a public meeting in Drogheda, Co Louth last night that he sensed the pain, anger and shock caused by the clerical abuse scandals. The former Archbishop of Westminster is leading an apostolic visitation to the Armagh diocese as part of the Pope's response to the crisis.

Dr Murphy O'Connor will hold another public meeting tonight in the Carrickdale Hotel, Carrickarnon, Co Louth with further meetings in Armagh and Cookstown on Thursday and Friday night respectively.
