The church has come a long way, painfully, since the Casey affair
Last week a sumptuous house located in one of the most scenic parts of the Dingle Peninsula was up for sale.
With beachfront views of the Atlantic - and the hills and hollows of the Slieve Mish mountains hovering in the background - it is a mood-inducing setting.
But this is also a house of special memory. It is where Bishop Eamon Casey, a one-time ebullient and much admired member of the Irish hierarchy, conducted his now well-chronicled clandestine affair with American divorcee Annie Murphy in the early 1970s.
