BISHOP of Clogher, Larry Duffy, has drawn attention from An Taoiseach Micheál Martin and the UK government’s Minister for Northern Ireland, Brandon Lewis on two separate clerical matters.

Bishop Duffy has also signed his name to a statement condemning the directive from Westminster that full abortion must be introduced in the North by 2022.
