Hickey would have made a better speaker than Father Flannery

Congratulations on publishing Margaret Hickey’s excellent summary on timeless Church teaching/tradition and how it relates to present events.

I’m sure I’m not the only to think that the Killeagh parish council could have carried out its mandate a lot more effectively by having a person like Margaret Hickey address the parish, rather than its first choice.

A talk from an articulate and intelligent Catholic woman would be a welcome change.
