Comments: Archbishop Eamon Martin

Archbishop Eamon Martin, the Catholic Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, has been vocal over the past week about matters on both sides of the border.

Last Friday, he described a New Year's Eve sketch on RTE, the Republic's state broadcaster, as "deeply offensive and blasphemous". The sketch, which was supposed to be satirical, had portrayed the virgin birth of Christ as "sexual harassment" by God.

Archbishop Martin also joined with the leaders of the three largest Protestant Churches in issuing a joint statement about the centenary of Northern Ireland.
