Irish Priest

In Ireland, an Irish priest has turned his back on the Roman Catholic Church and now practices a religion based on nature that dates back to Ireland's pre-Roman past. He and his followers have gone to the West of Ireland to practice a low-key spirituality that mixes together ancient myths of Ireland, the Christian gospel and lives of Irish saints. Laura Haydon reports from the Isle of Aran off the west coast of Ireland.
