A Brief History of Contraception in Ireland and the Church response to it
You can listen to this talk by clicking on this link The Story of Contraception in Ireland
I was invited by Patrick McCrystal to give a talk at the Human Life International Conference ‘By Way of the Family’ which was held in the Clayton Hotel in Leopardstown on September 24th 2016.
Patrick asked me to speak about the history of contraception in Ireland with a particular look at the response of the Catholic Hierarchy to it. It is a very sad story which highlights the betrayal of Irish Catholic married couples by their hierarchy. Sadder still is that very few people are aware of the problem and very few seek to rectify the situation.
I now have the pleasure of being able to make this talk available online for anyone who cares to listen.
