Bishop Daly was vindicated

Diarmaid Ferriter writing in Saturday's The Irish Times on Bishop Edward Daly:

The young Bogside priest who did not want to 'rock the political boat' became a bishop at the centre of political storms. 

History will be kind to him, not just as the defender of his parishioners, but as one whose assertions about how to end the conflict were ultimately vindicated.

Ferriter recalls how Bishop Daly was surprised and disappointed at his first meeting at the Irish episcopal conference in 1974 how little interest other bishops showed in the crisis in Northern Ireland.
