New chief for church board

By Alf McCreary

Belfast solicitor Aidan Canavan has replaced Judge Anthony Hederman as chairman of the Catholic Church's Board for Child Protection.

Judge Hederman, who announced his resignation recently, said that he had agreed to serve for two years, and that having achieved his main objective of providing a focus for safeguarding children at parish level, it was time to hand over.

Mr Canavan is a former president of the Law Society of Northern Ireland and a member of the first Parades Commission.
