Hozier: 'The damage done by the Church to Irish people is completely irreparable'

Wicklow singer Hozier has hit out at the Irish Church.

The Take Me To Church singer opened up about his feelings about religion, and the “damage done” by the Catholic church In Ireland.

“The damage done by the Church to the people of Ireland is completely irreparable, and the reparations are all too few. There’s still a lack of will to turn around and say, ‘This is not OK’,” he said.

The 24-year-old Bray singer added that the Church’s past is “appalling”.

“There are still things like regular news segments where they ask the local priest what he thinks. Why is it an organisation that is considered to have any moral standing at all? The track record is just appalling.”

Hozier rose to fame after his debut single Take Me To Church, explained that he doesn’t consider himself to be an atheist.

He added: “I still wouldn’t define myself as an atheist – it’s too absolute. But I don’t have any faith. I think faith is an absurd thing but I’m OK with that. There are no answers because the universe never asked a question in the first place.”
