Dublin Register of Defectors
There have been a couple of news stories recently, which are relevant to the Right To Defect.
Firstly, The Irish Times has reported that the Dublin Archdiocese retains a register of those wishing to defect, even though Canon Law still prevents them from formally recognising those defections.
Secondly, the Iona Institute campaign to retain the alcohol ban on Good Friday, again cites the number of Roman Catholics in the country.
Whether it relates to the Census or the number of registered defections, those who don’t wish to be used by the Iona Institute in this way, can register their preference not to be counted among the number of Irish Catholics. One way to do that is to virtually defect on this web site.
