The Primate of All Ireland, Dr Robin Eames, was in Iraq this week, making
a Christmas visit to troops, at the request of the 1st Battalion of the Royal
Irish Regiment, writes Gregg Ryan. He met chaplains, shared meals and acts of
worship with soldiers, and visited a field hospital. Dr Eames paid tribute to
the work of the regiment, which includes soldiers from Northern Ireland and
personnel from the Irish Republic who are serving with the British Army.
