Irish tensions

Sir.—Your very interesting comments on "Irish Catholic Tensions" seems to me to have overlooked one very important aspect or developments in Catholicism in Ireland.

Only a few years ago no Irish Catholic would have ever ventured to even suggest that an Irish Bishop would publicly dispute the statement or views of a Maynooth Professor, and vice versa.

It may sound odd. but the fact that Bishop Browne of Galway did contest the views of .the Rev. Professor McDonagh struck some Irish Catholics as being a healthy sign of the times.

The road ahead may he long and weary but this incident. to say the least, is somewhat encouraging.
