Big scandal at the time. The Catholic Church took a lot of the blame for years over that - it looked like they were more powerful than the Government of the day!

But other factors were at play too...

He is buried in Enniskerry Parish Graveyard for anyone who likes to know that sort of thing. His gravestone is virtually unreadable but recogniseable as several stones have been placed on top of his gravestone to make it readily identifiable. It is also the resting place of Katy French for anyone more interested in Celtic Tiger "Culture"... Shocked

Not that quite - see above!

I will add Paul Henry to the file I'm developing - hopefully it will be the most comprehensive around on Internet.

Any contros on Irish people or events at Home or abroad for a specific date are more than welcome.
