Sir, – “I spoke to him in no un­cer­tain terms about the sep­a­ra­tion of pow­ers in Ire­land and how the Ir­ish State was a Repub­lic and about the re­dress board [set up to com­pen­sate peo­ple who had been in re­li­gious-run in­sti­tu­tions as chil­dren].” (Der­mot Ah­ern, “Vat­i­can pro­posed State in­dem­nify it against cler­i­cal abuse claims”, Patsy McGarry, Front page, August 8th).

Was it not Mr Ah­ern’s FF col­league Michael Woods who passed on the com­pen­sa­tion bill of a cool bil­lion for cler­i­cal child abuse to the in­no­cent tax­payer; and the same paragon of repub­li­can sec­u­lar­ism, him­self, who blessed us with our cur­rent theo­cratic blas­phemy law? In no un­cer­tain terms. – Yours, etc,

D FLINTER, Head­ford, Co Gal­way.
