Bishop of Limerick 'fighting to keep his job'

It looks increasingly likely that the Bishop of Limerick will have to be forced from his position.

It has been reported today Dr Donal Murray has been fighting to keep his job during discussions in Rome over the past week.

He is now expected to be asked by the Vatican to vacate his position this week.

Dr Murray has been under pressure to leave after the Murphy report criticised his handling of clerical sex abuse allegations in the Dublin Archdiocese.
