Bishop Fintan Gavin

  • The new Bishop of Cork and Ross says Leo Varadkar needs to learn from comments he made about Fianna Fáil leader, Micheál Martin.

    During a Dáil debate this week, the Taoiseach said the opposition leader reminds him of a priest who preaches then sins behind the altar.

    Leo Varadkar subsequently apologised for the remarks.

    Bishop Fintan Gavin says the Taoiseach needs to be respectful of victims of abuse who were also offended by his comments.
