Protests against blasphemous image at UCC


Mexican-born artist Alma Lopez’s digital print was among 12 of her art works displayed on the second floor of the Rahilly building as part of an academic conference on Chicano culture — US citizens of Mexican descent.


  1. Great to see these protests taking place and that Catholics have been making reparation.

    Director of Public Prosecutions to decide on blasphemy case.

    A senior Garda in Cork has confirmed that a file will be sent to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions regarding the exhibition of material which is insulting and offensive to Catholics hosted by University College Cork.

    Both the Constitution and the statute law prohibit “publication and utterance” of material which outrages members of a religious organisation.

    Following the police investigation the DPP will decide whether or not the case should be prosecuted in the criminal courts.
