For almost a year, Christian churches have been closed to public worship and one businessman has had enough for the draconian lockdowns.
Newstalk reports that Declan Ganley, a well known businessman who recently settled a case with RTE is now going to the High Court where he is claiming the prevention of people of faith from attending mass breaches the right to the free practice of religion as enshrined in the Irish Constitution.
The High Court heard that the ban may be advisory rather than legal – meaning it has not been an offence to celebrate or attend Mass throughout the pandemic.
The State has now been given until mid-April to clarify whether or not there is any law against masses being held in public.
Mr Ganley said there has been a “trend across the democratic world” whereby challenges have been brought against religious bans and won – most recently in Scotland.
