@KevinBoxerMoran is there plan in place for the @OPWIreland to begin the removal of homeless individuals living in tents from the Phoenix Park and if so what measures have @HomelessDublin and @MurphyEoghan, @HousingPress put in place to cater for the extra demand? #NowhereToGo


Archbishop Diarmuid Martin

Kate O’Neill, in The Times Ireland edition, reports:

The archbishop [Diarmuid Martin] said the suggestion that the pontiff would visit a former Magdalene laundry during his visit was just speculation.

“The question of all victims will be looked at. There are victims of institutions, survivors of abuse by priests, Magdalene laundries, the mother and baby homes, we are looking at all of those,” he said.
