The Catholic Church in Ireland has often been defined as a conservative, authoritarian and severe organisation. This is only one side of the story.
The Dissonant Voices:Faith and the Irish Diaspora Conference will explore the other radical and yet thoroughly orthodox tradition and legacy of the people of the Irish Church. The Conference will examine the politically and socially engaged faith of the Irish and the Irish Diaspora.
The Conference will survey the historical contribution to Europe of Irish Church men and women. The Conference will hear from contemporary voices in Ireland, influenced and influencing the universal Church in its option for the poor and oppressed.
The legacy of this outspoken faith will be examined by contributors from the Irish Diaspora who are fired by this radical but often unpublicised Irish Church.
Speakers include: Dr Eamonn O Ciardh, Fr Joe McVeigh, Msgr Rayond Murray and Dr Oliver Rafferty SJ
