The Standards in Public Office Commission (Sipo) has been urged to examine the funding of the Catholic bishops’ referendum campaign in support of retaining the Eighth Amendment.
Atheist Ireland said it was “seeking clarification on whether certain distinct and autonomous legal entities, that are associated with the Catholic Church in Ireland, should have to register with Sipo, in light of their specific funding structures and their campaigning on political issues.”
