Nuncio Leanza transferred to Prague

The Vatican's envoy to Ireland is being transferred to Prague.

Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza has been at the centre of a diplomatic row between Ireland and Rome over the Cloyne report.

He was due to finish his posting in Ireland this summer, but was called back to Rome for consultations after the Taoiseach Enda Kenny's hard-hitting attack on the Vatican.

Archbishop Leanza is expected to take up a posting in the Czech Republic in the coming weeks.
