Should Cardinal Sean Brady resign over the Brendan Smyth controversy?
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.
