Description   American Archbishop Fulton Sheen, former Auxiliary Bishop of New York (1951-65), is interviewed by broadcaster Nodlaig McCarthy on her RTÉ Television programme 'Nodlaig McCarthy With...', a series of interviews with prominent public figures, during studio recording in June 1975.

This edition of the programme, the first in the series, was broadcast on 16 July 1975; the accompanying RTÉ Guide article was published on 11 July 1976.

Archbishop Sheen was known as America's 'television bishop'. He first broadcast in the late 1940s with the DuMont television network and broadcast his own programmes on local stations throughout America in the 1960s. In addition to serving as Auxiliary Bishop of New York, he was also Bishop of Rochester from 1966 to 1969. Upon resigning from this position, he was appointed Archbishop of the Titular See of Newport (Wales) by Pope Paul VI. In 2002 Archbishop Sheen's Cause for Canonization was officially opened.
