Irish University: Bishop Of Limerick Disagrees With The Dunraven Scheme

The Roman Catholic Bishop of Limerick expressed his dissenting views on the Dunraven scheme of University education in a recent letter to the “Freeman’s Journal.” Contradicting the claim that the Bishops of Ireland had given their approval to the scheme, Bishop Limerick declared it to be deeply flawed and criticised its inability to provide equal opportunities for Catholics in comparison to Protestants. He further stated that while he personally held a negative opinion about the scheme, he felt compelled to accept it due to the circumstances. He highlighted that the prospect of Mr Wyndham and his Government offering either the proposed scheme or nothing left him no choice but to acquiesce. Bishop Limerick also expressed his belief that Mr Wyndham would have eagerly seized the opportunity to abandon the entire endeavour and shift blame onto the perceived obstinacy of the bishops.
