Dear Brendan,

For a long time now I have been receiving communications from priests and people of Galway diocese uneasy with how issues are not addressed.

For instance, has the former Redemptorist priest Father Rob McNamara and his housekeeper being involved in a succession of disputes with fellow clergy.

ROB McNAMARA

He began working in Galway diocese apparently in 2009.

In Mervue, did he accuse the parish secretary, Mary O Donnell of being involved in witchcraft?

Did he report the PP of Mervue, Father Willie Cummins to Bishop Drennan?

When he was moved to Renmore did he have a row there with the PP Father Michael Mulkerrins?

IMGP2300 (2)

CANON MICHAEL MULKERRINS

Did he call the German parish secretary in Renmore a “Nazi”?

When he was moved to Knocknacarra did he accuse the PP there, Father Tadgh Quinn of breaking the Seal of Confession?

FATHER TADGH QUINN

Did he accuse the PP and parish staff in Knocknacarra of installing secret cameras to watch him?

He was moved to Galway University Hospital as chaplain. Did he have a row with the other chaplain Father Peter Joyce, accusing him of assaulting him and resulting in Father Joyce needing counselling?

FATHER PETER JOYCE

Did he have problems with the new chaplain Father Daithi O’Murchu and did Father Daithi refer matters to the Gardaí?

Eventually was Rob himself and Daithi removed from the hospital?

Did father Daithi involve the Association of Catholic Priests, canon and civil lawyers in the dispute

Is Father Daithi now ministering in the UK where he not happy?

Have you now appointed Father Rob as a curate in your cathedral?

Does Father Rob say he WAS gay but was cured at Medjugorje?

Brendan, quite simply, what is going on and what are you doing about all this?

Yours,

Pat Buckley

    1. What gives you the right to interfere in any diocese, Irish or otherwise. Have you not got it into your peanut sized brain that you are a heretic, dissenter, schismatic, renegade and apostate. Who the hell in the RC Church is going to take any notice of you? You’ve proven time and time again that you are a loathsome scumbag.

  2. Buckley, I’m quite certain that none of the priest you refer to have given you their permission to speak or ask questions on their behalf. And those who are supposedly talking to you are, in all truth, malcontents and disgruntled or sheer trouble makers. You have no business interfering in any Diocese with such arrogance. I trust the good Bishop will ignore your trouble making for him. Get a life Bucks! .

  4. That McNamara fellow is barking mad. He should not be in ministry. The Redemptorists’ “formation” system has a hell of a lot to answer for. That bald guy with the mad stare inflicted on a Parish in Belfast is another prime example. The CSsRs seem quite happy though to dump their mistakes and problems on dioceses and parishioners. It’s the people who suffer.

  17. It seems to me that + Pat is perfectly within his rights to ask questions of a bishop about his diocese and priests. They are public institutions, and are accountable publicly for what they do. So, it is quite right to ask legitimate questions about the leadership, management and personnel of the diocese. After all, who pays to keep all these bishops and priests in the style to which they have become accustomed ? We do. So, + Pat, and others are perfectly entitled to ask questions, even awkward and impertinent questions ! As so many of you ask of + Pat himself ! Transparency and honesty are the way forward. No go areas only breed dark things. So, Bishop of Galway, how about answering + Pat’s questions ? On here, even !

    1. 1.28: You fool. You’re back with your arrant nonsense. The Bishop of Galway is absolutely right not to respond to Buckley and certainly not in this blog. Pat only causes division, creates gossip, engenders vengeance and delights in the failings of others. He should look after his own hayshed flock and mind his own business. He is a trouble shooter. Galway Diocese will stand for a long time after Pat’s shed falls apart. The audacity, arrogance and self righteousness of Buckley is boundless.

      Do you have attention deficit?

      Not being rude, but I couldn’t help noticing the abrupt and long line of emojis after you began to address Pat. And then, just as abruptly, you got back on track by continuing the address, which was a little rambling.

      Ever thought of asking your doctor for ritalin?

      1. 5:35 (a representative of the MC persona – not a very congruent one).

        You accuse your interlocutor of ‘rambling.’ He used 49 words.

        You used 54.

        The sudden interest in succinctness is rich coming from one of you who have served up here on many occasions, a diarrhoea of words, and, at the same time, a constipation of ideas.

      Literary rambling has nothing whatever to do with word-numbers or brevity, but with irrelevant subject-change. (I’ve lost you, haven’t I?😅)
      Never mind. Perhaps you, and the poster at 5:55, could, er, share any ritalin he or she might be prescribed, since you both have problems in paying attention.
      I’ll tell you what intrigues me, though: the fact that you took the trouble to count the number of words in each post. Maybe you have mild ocd as well. I’m sure the right doctor could help with this, too.

        Word count is a quantitative method of measurement. Its results are mathematically, i.e., scientifically, accurate to assess whether a piece of writing is prolix or not. A low word-count and verbosity are in inverse proportion, just like you people and logic, truth and intelligence.

Get a life the lot of you and as for you Pat…. you are supposed to be a man of God, why not put your energy into using your talents to teach us about the word of God (which I know you are actually good at), rather than spreading gossip and constantly doing people down and hurting them. Your obsession about outing gays is remarkable when you too took the same vows yourself that you choose to ignore. I know at least one who has self harmed and even considered suicide because of stuff you published on this blog. Are you proud of this? What about your partner? Presuming it wasn’t a partnership of convenience to secure residency? What does he think about you constantly updating your blog 24/7, 365? If you are still together, your relationship must be awful. I will pray for you that you will find peace and contentment, as you are clearly not in a good place spiritually or psychologically. God bless.
