Should Car­di­nal Sean Brady re­sign over the Bren­dan Smyth con­tro­versy?

Bray People - - FACE TO FACE -

Vi Luc­can, Bal­ly­waltrim Yes, maybe not quit the church but def­i­nitely re­sign his po­si­tion. Chris Carter, Bally­brack Yes. Noth­ing is as bad as a cover up. I don’t know if it’ll bring back the church’s cred­i­bil­ity, but it can bring back the idea of re­spon­si­bil­ity for the church. Gaye Grif­fin, Kil­lar­ney Road Ac­tu­ally, fun­nily enough, no. His role was on the pe­riph­ery. At the time, the sit­u­a­tion of re­port­ing wasn’t pos­si­ble and the church does need him. Frank Malone, Hazel­wood Yes def­i­nitely. I think he should just be sent away. There’s too much to cover up. Kay Sheekey, Bal­ly­waltrim Yes, def­i­nitely. I thought it was ter­ri­ble of the church to ask parish­ioners down in Wex­ford to pay for their sins. Ger­ard Flynn, Boghall Road He should in­deed. It’s ter­ri­ble that we’ve peo­ple in the church that are sup­posed to be part of our com­mu­nity but we can’t trust them when they have that kind of power. Noreen Hay­den, Boghall Road Yes, I think it would bring back cred­i­bil­ity. If he’d gone to the gar­daí other kids would have been saved. El­iz­a­beth De­lahunty, Grey­stones Yes, I think he should step down. It mightn’t have been easy to re­port but you can’t let that kind of thing go un­pun­ished. He should have stopped it in the beginning.
