Mullen on the money again

My favourite journalist, Ronan Mullen of the Irish Examiner, has written an excellent article in which he sets the record straight on 'the Tilson case', often cited by those who seek to show how the Catholic Church had a negative influence on Irish life. He writes...

"But there is a great deal more to the Tilson case than either Archbishop Neill or the Irish Times would have us believe...In fact, in upholding the contractual validity of the pre-marriage promise given by Mr Tilson, the court was rejecting an archaic principle of British law that would be the object of public scorn if it still applied in Ireland today."

Great article as usual by Mr Mullen. You can read it in full here.
