Nation vs Island[edit]

All of the Catholic diocese articles are sorted according to the nation to where they belong with a few exceptions. One of the exceptions is that of Great Britain. The recent debate with the category of Great Britain, is to eliminate that distinction, by changing the name to that of the Roman Catholic dioceses in the United Kingdom. This has consequences for Ireland, in that there are only 2 dioceses which reside neither in the Republic of Ireland, or in Great Britain.

The definition of Ireland, is that while these territories are in the episcopal conference of Ireland, the organisational structure here on the wikipedia is not according to the conferences, but according to the nations to which the dioceses belong.

Hence the move from the Category:Roman Catholic dioceses in Ireland to the Category:Roman Catholic dioceses in Great Britain. I understand that at present, the move is erroneous, I'm just waiting for Appleyard to do the move, since he's gone to bed. Benkenobi18 (talk) 09:14, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Roman Catholic Diocese of X[edit]

Deacon, the whole point for the standardisation of the names, is so these templates have an obvious pattern. I've restored the previous version. Please don't change it again without discussion. Benkenobi18 (talk) 03:36, 18 July 2009 (UTC)
