Sinéad Hussey of RTÉ reports:
The Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All-Ireland is seeking a meeting with the Minister for Health over a “draconian” move to outlaw public mass and other religious services.
A statutory instrument was published earlier this week after Minister Stephen Donnelly signed a regulation allowing only virtual religious services.
In a statement Archbishop Eamon Martin said he became aware of this measure on Friday and consulted with the other Archbishops.
He said they considered the move, together with the associated penal provisions, to be “provocative” and “draconian”.
The archbishops say are now seeking legal advice and want an immediate meeting with Minister Donnelly.
