Céad mile fáilte

Ryle Dwyer pays a tribute to the spirit of the Irish people and lauds the contribution the poeple of this island have made across the world, notably in church affairs and bringing the faith to far off lands. As Ryle point out, despite the agony which some evil men masquerading as priests caused many innocent children, this country can still be proud of the majority of good, decent holy men who spread God's word to places like Nigeria. However unfortunately our leaders in government have shown a much less gracious attitude in their treatment of a young Nigerian student. Those who campaigned against Minister McDowell's have a right to be proud of themselves and the nation should be proud of them. They have given an example of what an "Irish welcome" should truely mean.
