CARDINAL Cahal Daly, the primate of Ireland, this week condemned the Dublin government's failure to put people in the republic back to work.
The Cardinal, echoing attacks made on government policy by opposition and trades union leaders last weekend, said that recent increases in unemployment levels were "deeply disturbing". But he declined to blame the Irish. taoiseach, Albert Reynolds, by name.
"Many of the personal, marital, family and social problems in our country are connected directly or indirectly with unemployment," said Cardinal Daly.
