DUBLIN — The Catholic Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin has indicated his approval for giving legal rights to gay couples.

He is the first senior religious figure in Ireland to have made a statement of this kind.

It followed comments from Taoiseach Bertie Ahern that extending tax and inheritance rights to gay couples would be the �fairest� and �most Christian� way to deal with the issue.
