Broadcaster Seán O’Rourke: One of the country’s best-known broadcasters has warned that Ireland risks becoming “priestless” and he appealed to people to summon up the courage and invite young people “to go the extra mile” and consider a vocation. In an address delivered at Knock ­Basilica on the theme The Gift of Service, semi-retired RTÉ broadcaster Sean O’Rourke expressed regret that “we face into a future where it looks as if many young people perhaps won’t be hearing or heeding the call to become priests”. Regretfully, we are not far away from trying to survive as a priestless Church.
