Bishops express concern at passing of Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy & Reconciliation) Act 2023

11 Oct, 2023 | Bishops, Church, News

During their Autumn General Meeting in Maynooth last week, bishops discussed the recent passing by the Westminster Parliament of the Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Act 2023.

Bishops noted that this legislation was passed without the support of victims of the Troubles or of political parties in the North or South of Ireland.  The bishops expressed the view that this legislation is unlikely to contribute to the work for reconciliation and healing, rather, it will further undermine confidence in the political process in Northern Ireland.
