Leo Varadkar has said he is glad the Catholic Church is now less dominant in public life.
On the eve of the arrival of Pope Francis, Taoiseach (Irish prime minister) Mr Varadkar said he hopes the visit will begin a new chapter in Ireland’s relationship with the Church.
He added he would like to see the Pope visit Northern Ireland at a later date.
Mr Varadkar said: “I think in the past the Catholic Church had too much of a dominant place in our society.
