Cardinal Desmond Connell said today that in any conflict between Civil Law and Church Canon Law he will "follow conscience".

Watch the report from RTE News with Joe Little, Religious Affairs Correspondent.

The Cardinal once again failed to respond to calls from Government, One In Four and others to state clearly that he would accept that Civil Law, as the law of the State, is supreme over Canon Law and that as a citizen of the Sate he is subject to the rule of Civil Law.
