    Following the publication of the Ryan report in 2009, religious groups offered €352.6 million towards the abuse costs. This was later reduced to €192.8 million. Of this, so far €96.1 million has been realised.
    The religious organisations have only paid 14% of the costs arising from their crimes and Minister Bruton says he is helpless to get any further money from them. These organisations are heavily subsidised by the State, they don't pay income tax, they don't pay property tax as they are 'charities' and like many other charities they can enrich themselves without any consequence.

    Kenny got a lot of backs up when he ranted against the Vatican and closed the embassy.

    He destroyed a lot of good will. He has probably done the same with Trump.

    Mr Kenny is a typical Stater - talks first and think later - if he thinks at all - and seems to think that he can insult people and that the victims will forget the insult within a few hours.

    One of the finest displays of naked populism in the history of the State. And I don't recall him saying anything against the RCC 20 or 30 years ago when such comments might not have met with such popular approval!

    You can't. Hence RB's appeal to 'moral responsibilities'.

    FG gave two fingers to the bishops' moral advice and they now want to hold the religious congregations to the FG sense of morality.
