    Minister denied a role in godson’s Confirmation ‘over abortion views’

    A minister of state has claimed that he has been barred from sponsoring his godson at a Confirmation Mass because of his views on abortion. Independent Alliance TD John Halligan has accused the Church of resorting to “pitiful tactics” in the Eighth Amendment referendum after he was prohibited from being a sponsor by the Bishop of Waterford. “I was contacted by the parents of my godson on Thursday to tell me that they had been approached by a member of clergy and told that I could not stand as sponsor at the ceremony on Sunday and that this was the view of the bishop,” said Mr Halligan. The junior business minister said the parents of his godson were told of the decision by Bishop of Waterford and Lismore Diocese, Most Rev Alphonsus Cullinan last Wednesday, the day before Mr Halligan held a large pro-choice meeting in Waterford.

  • Taoiseach: I don't think a six-week-old foetus has the same right to life as my sister

    The Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has explained why he is in favour of a repeal of the Eighth Amendment saying that "abortion in Ireland is already a reality". Mr Varadkar told Matt Cooper on Today FM's 'The Last Word' that the Eighth Amendment is not sustainable since it has only succeeded in exporting our problems and importing solutions. Mr Varadkar said: "There's a certain hypocrisy in the current situation whereby we have in our constitution an almost absolute ban on abortion, and yet we also have the right to information about it and the right to travel abroad to end your pregnancy." Concerning the right to life of the unborn, the Taoiseach feels the point of viability - when a baby can survive

    ‘You’re talking to the most exciting fighter in Irish MMA at the minute so put me in there against the champion’

    Source: Gary Carr/INPHO IF CONFIDENCE WON fights, Kiefer ‘BDK’ Crosbie would already be a world champion. SBG’s own, Crosbie just co-headlined BAMMA 35 in Dublin last weekend. He put away his opponent in just under four minutes of the first round, cheered on by friend and mentor Conor McGregor. He speaks a lot like McGregor. The same bold confidence, the same witty sense of humour and of course the same fondness of predicting the future. So far, he’s backed it up. Crosbie even wants a blood-soaked post fight picture of him to go alongside the headline. “Use the one of me and Conor (McGregor) and maybe the one of me with blood all over me or something!” he jokes. Yet, he is on the verge of challenging

But questioned who he thinks is the most handsome, the four-year-old puts his hand to his own chest and replies: “Me”. Cowell was interviewed to discuss his ongoing support
