O'Leary leaves Catholic Church over stance on women priests

Veteran Irish broadcaster Olivia O'Leary has made a very public departure from the Catholic Church.
The Carlow-born journalist, best known for her "we were a bit worried about the curtsy" tribute to the Queen during the monarch's State visit, renounced Catholicism because of the church's refusal to ordain women, though the institutional cover-up of clerical child sex abuse was a "proximate factor".
