Father Conor McCarthy, ordained in 2015 for Down and Connor and curate of Larne is rumoured to be planning a marriage soon.
The “bride” to be is another young gentleman according to talk circulating in clerical circles?.
Its quite sad and disappointing that a priest so recently ordained is leaving.
It also brings into question the effeciency of those involved in priestly formation that someone so recently out of the seminary finds himself unsuited to the priesthood.
Conor was appointed to Larne where I live and was sharing a house with a priest in his 70s who could not be accurately described as a party lover.
The parochial house looks like a morgue and there seldom a light on or any sign of life.
I don’t know what Noel Treanor was thinking when he sent a newly ordained priest, fresh out of a seminary community to a premises with the ambience of an old person’s home!
But our old friend Treanor gives the impression that he does not care and does not have a clue!
IS FATHER CIARAN DALLAT INVOLVED IN ST LOUISE’S GIRLS SCHOOL?
The Blog has received a report that Father Ciaran Dallat who made one of his parishioners pregnant has been in to St. Louise’s Comprehensive College on the Falls Road to engage is some kind of pastoral work?
Father Dallat made one of his Sacred Heart Parish parishioners pregnant and left her to cope with a miscarriage while he went out for dinner.
After a short time “off the mission” Noel Treanor made his chaplain to Maghaberry Men’s Prison near Lisburn in Co. Antrim.
Since he went there he has been keeping a low profile – organising a prisoner’s choir.
A school source say that he has visited St. Louise’s in recent times for pastoral occasions.
St. Louise’s is one of the biggest schools in the UK attended by 1500 + GIRLS.
Does Noel Treanor know that Father Dallat is involved in St. Louise’s?
The talk among the clergy is that Treanor wants Dallat to return to a parish this year as there are five PPs retiring and one young PP is seriously ill.
In spite of the priest shortage in D&C Treanor still has priests fulfilling office roles – jobs that could be perfectly done by qualified lay people.
It seems that Treanor likes having a clerical court around him.
