The leader of the Catholic Church in Ireland has asked for people to pray during this 'critical time for the peace process'.

Archbishop Eamon Martin said: "I am conscious that this is a critical time in the peace process.

"Our politicians continue to seek a breakthrough at the talks in Stormont.

"I encourage everyone to pray this Holy Week that the talks will be guided by wisdom, courage, right judgement, and a spirit of cooperation and compromise."
