An article in last Friday’s edition, which profiled Cardinal Marc Ouellet, said that almost half of Irish priests are members of the Association of Catholic Priests. In fact, the number of priest (diocesan and religious) members of the association is almost 1,000.

The Catholic Church in Ireland has 4,475 priests, of whom 2,747 are diocesan priests.
