Cardinal Cahal Daly

Ireland's most senior Catholic cardinal, Dr Cahal Daly, has been taken to hospital where he is seriously ill.

It is understood he was taken from his south Belfast home on Monday morning and is being treated at the coronary care unit of Belfast City Hospital.

Cardinal Daly, 92, was Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland in the early 1990s.

He was made a cardinal in 1991. He retired in 1996 at the age of 79 and returned to his study of philosophy.

Among his published works are Philosophy in Britain from Bradley to Wittgenstein and The Minding of Planet Earth, published in 2004.
