Is that a realistic aim; specially in a country like Ireland, which owes much of its culture and history to the influence of religion? Joining Kieran on Wednesday's edition of The Hard Shoulder was Ronan McCrea, who is Professor of Constitutional and European Law at University College London, who believes that trying to take religion out of society is a very careful balancing act.
