29 August, 2014 - 14:48 General
The Diocese of Killaloe is being accused of ignoring the views of it's parishoners in Clare, who want it to revamp it's plans for a permanent diaconate.
That's only open to men, who will undergo training to officiate at events including births, weddings and funerals - women are not permitted to apply.
This has been criticised in many communities, with posters erected stating that women have been victims of discrimination.
