–        the faith inter-face with the UN, UNHCR, UNICEF, UNAIDS, World Bank, WHO and the EU

–        its receding place in public affairs in Ireland

–        the relationship between Church and State in Ireland

–        the fractious relationship between Church and the Irish media

–        the evolving clash between Christian values and human rights as in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and

–        the un-challenged findings on serious dysfunctions within the European Court of Human Rights.
