"The Catholic church's most senior cleric in Ireland has rejected calls to resign over claims he helped cover up sex abuse investigations in the 1970s.Cardinal Sean Brady, primate of all-Ireland, admitted he was present at meetings where two abused teenagers were made to sign vows of silence.
The meetings followed complaints of abuse against Fr Brendan Smyth, jailed in the 1990s for serial child abuse.
"Frankly I don't believe that this is a resigning matter," the cardinal said.
Cardinal Brady said he had been following church orders and that there were no guidelines for him to follow.
Fr Smyth was a notorious child sex offender who was believed to have abused at least 20 children over a 40 year period in the north and south of Ireland.
He was eventually convicted and jailed for more than 90 offences.
However campaigners believe the cleric could have abused hundreds of children as he was moved around parishes, diocese and countries by the church.
They have accused Cardinal Brady of reckless endangerment and demanded his resignation."
