It’s time for people with a voice to do all in their power to call out anti-female bias in all its forms

I’ve only been asked once to say the rosary in public. It was about three years ago and I was sitting on a bus going to the west of Ireland when I heard the call. It came from a wonderful woman much loved in our parish. She was in her late eighties and shouted, “Hi Frank, you’re good on the microphone, get up to the front of the bus and call out the rosary, we’re almost here.”

The imminent destination was Knock Shrine in Co Mayo and apparently pilgrims going there say the rosary as they get close to the village. The difference this day, however, was we weren’t pilgrims. We were retired footballers on a weekend away in the west.
