SOME PRIESTS ARE CLAIMING THAT FINTAN “LUGS” MONAHAN IS A BIT OF A DICTATOR IN KILLALOE?
They also say he compares very badly with their former beloved bishop, Willie Walsh.
THE DAVID DYSKY CASE
David Dysky was a Killaloe seminarian in Maynooth who was on the teceiving end of an injury under “strange” circumstances.
He is a member of the local Polish community.
Some people and priests feel that this incident was not well handled and that ot was all handled in great secrecy and lack of transparency?
I am told that the Polish Community are unhappy with how Monahan handled this situation. I am told that their displeasure was communicated to Monahan by the local Polish chaplain.
FATHER ANTHONY MC MAHON
Father McMahon, a priest of Killaloe, received Bishop Willie Walsh’s permission to be a British Army chaplain. That permission was extended by the next bishop Ciaran O’Reilly.
Fintan Monahan, according to reports wants to bring this chaplaincy to an end. Father McMahon has only one year left to do to qualify for his army pension. However, word is that Monahan is not allowing this last year and many are very upset.
FATHER FERGAL O NEILL
Father Fergal O’Neill is also a priest of Killaloe.
A parish property was in dire need of renovation of repair.
According to reports he was blocked by his parish council from doing the work.
The case went to Monahan and he told the priest to do what the committee told him.
Again a very upsetting situation.
The Killaloe priests need to come together and organise and let Monahan know that he presides with their permission.
