AN Irish Roman Catholic bishop has apologised for a boycott of Protestant- run businesses - more than 40 years ago.

The 1957 boycott, which was backed by the church authorities of the day, was staged at Fethard-on-Sea in the Irish Republic's Co Wexford.

It centred on a row about a married couple - a Protestant woman and a Catholic man - and the religion in which their children should be brought up.
