SEXUAL PREDATOR APPOINTED PP OF LOUGHINISLAND!!!

untitled
CIARAN DALLAT

IN MY OPINION NOEL TREANOR, THE BISHOP OF DOWN AND CONNOR, HAS SHOWN UNBELIEVABLE IRRESPONSIBILITY BY APPOINTING THE DISGRACED CIARAN DALLAT AS THE PP OF LOUGHGINISLAND IN COUNTY DOWN.

11080382_919725421395414_3914867325460609076_o

At the time he made a parishioner pregnant he also went out for dinner with friends and allowed the poor woman to miscarry their baby on the bathroom floor!

Treanor had hidden Dallat in Maghaberry Prison since the scandal as a chaplain.

Now he has brought Dallat back and made him the PP of Loughinisland!

The parishioners there will have to keep a close watch on their wives and daughters.

  8. I should have thought that Loughinisland parish had suffered enough with the notorious Green Heights massacre by loyalist terrorists in 1994.
    It’s almost as if Treanor is saying: ‘You culchies don’t matter. You don’t register at all in my concerns. You’ll take what I give you…and be grateful for it. I’m your bishop, and God has my back.’
    Predictably, there will be a cluch of stomach-turning, obsequious apologists in the parish, who’ll make excuses for Dallat; something very like ‘ah sure, Father. We’re all sinners, aren’t we? There’s worse than you in the world.’
    And they’ll smile broadly while fussing over him…with a vacuity that would make Homer Simpson seem a Stephen Hawking protégé.
    And what will Dallat think of these munchkins?

    1. 1.33am: Hi Mags: You’re being rude again. Not sleeping well. Fr. Dallat doesn’t require your advice, judgment or obnoxious poison. God is a forgiving God, not a sledge hammer judge as you portray him. Since you live behind a keyboard and seem so useless a person, with much bitterness, anger and rejection in your life, any advice or insight you give is a waste. Look to yourself and heal your own brokenness and sinfulness. God is good to you also – but you must first empty yourself (of all your craziness and selfishness and self obsessions) to make room for him. Pray, dear Maggie for yourself. Pray.

You are a heretic at 1:54 p.m. Jesus talks about us humans forgiving one another 70 times 7 (In other words, 7 being the perfect number, an infinite number of times with no mention of conditions.) So is it likely that the God of Jesus puts conditions in the way of forgiveness while Jesus’ disciples are required to forgive without this condition. You were shown up here to be a poor interpreter of holy scripture. It figures.

      You’re still smarting, aren’t you? From the repeated intellectual drubbings I’ve given you here?
      Your pride is deepening your natural stupidity, and your fanatical desire to ‘get one over on me’ is actually making you appear mentally unsound, on top of already being incredibly stupid.
      Have you prayed the Lord’s Prayer today? Not just recited the words, but actually thought through the words (in so far as one disadvantaged as you naturally can)?
      ‘FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES…’
      This is a REQUEST for forgiveness.
      Can you work the rest out for yourself?
      FORGIVENESS FROM GOD MUST SINCERELY BE ASKED FOR, BECAUSE IT MAY NOT BE PRESUMED.
      Which, in turn, means that the person is contrite, repentant, and willing to make amends for moral wrongdoing…otherwise the Lord’s Prayer has not been prayed, but merely recited.
      If God expects this of us, then it is expected of each of us, one to another.
      Forgiveness from God is a healing and a grace (God himself). But grace cannot enter an unwilling human heart.
      Go and reflect on the painting by the English portrait artist, William Holman Hunt…where Christ stands at a door and knocks. He cannot admit himself, since there is no handle on the outside. The painting is an allegorization of what I have just explained to you.

    Wouldn’t it be grand if the people of Loughinisland made it clear to both Dallat and Treanor that they don’t want him in the parish? They have shown such courage and resolution in the past 25 years and now know that the only way is to stand up for what they believe in.
    Problem is, that most of them won’t know much, if anything about Dallat’s past form.
    Any ideas on how to let them know the calibre of what they’re getting? Surely they have a right to know?
    Prevention is better than a cure, and action now before he’s moved should be more effective.
    Keep him ‘in prison’ I say.

  21. The Diocese of Derry priest changes are due within the next week or so, it will be interesting to see their changes, as Bishop McKeown there has hinted there will be “significant and structural changes” to that diocese.

    Brendan Collins is still missing from the diocese. There is a picture on his Facebook page looking very happy away from the diocese and the priesthood, so we can guess he will never return to Derry.

    There are a lot of retirements due in the Derry Diocese in 2019 and there is not enough priests left to fill them. One ordination happened this summer, of the little queen Declan McGeehan, who has been bounced around different parishes in the diocese this summer celebrating masses – seems Bishop McKeown is keeping an eye on each parish he is in, and see which poor parish will have to stomach him as their curate come the end of August 2019.

    There is speculation among cathedral parishioners that their administrator Paul Farren might be moved. He has been there since 2011 and usually 8 years is the limit for an administrator of the cathedral, so maybe Paul might be on the move – I doubt it though, as he has done good things for the cathedral parish, and he brings in a lot of money to the cathedral through the novenas, special ceremonies and of course he is best buddies with the Anglican clergy, so maybe Farren is there to stay, at least for another year.

    1. There are a number of MIA in Derry that need to be addressed – if they are not gone for whatever reason and are fit to be in a parish then Donal needs to haul them in and get them into a parish. Also recall the priest who is in Canada. James Devine went to the white fathers for one year – will he be back? One would assume that the priest who went to America on study (mcGaviagan) will be returning. I suspect Fr Farren could be given a PP post – over due – then there is the VG who isn’t in a parish – put him in as Adm at the Cathedral – the newly ordained boy will likely be foisted on one of the city parishes – most likely the three patrons. PP of Aygharan to retire will be interesting to see what happens there as will Drumquin as PP there has had serious health issues these last few years

    From the Hunky Dory album 1971.

    Oh yeah…..Mmm
    I still don’t know what I was waiting for
    And my time was running wild
    A million dead-end streets
    And every time I thought I’d got it made
    It seemed the taste was not so sweet
    So I turned myself to face me
    But I’ve never caught a glimpse
    Of how the others must see the faker
    I’m much too fast to take that test

    Just gonna have to be a different man
    Time may change me
    But I can’t trace time

    I watch the ripples change their size
    But never leave the stream
    Of warm impermanence and
    So the days float through my eyes
    But still the days seem the same
    And these children that you spit on
    As they try to change their worlds
    Are immune to your consultations
    They’re quite aware of what they’re going through

    Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
    (Turn and face the strange)
    Ch-ch-changes
    Don’t tell them to grow up and out of it
    Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
    (Turn and face the strange)
    Ch-ch-changes
    Where’s your shame
    You’ve left us up to our necks in it
    Time may change me
    But you can’t trace time

    Strange fascination, fascinating me
    Changes are taking the pace
    I’m going through

    Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes

    Ch-ch-changes
    Oh, look out you rock ‘n rollers
    Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
    (Turn and face the strange)
    Ch-ch-changes

  23. If bishops and priests took the bother to keep to professional standards, rather than viewing themselves a special category untouched by the normal standards of professional and pastoral life, Dallat would have been disbarred from any involvement in pastoral activity long ago. If a medical professional, legal professional, teaching professional, social work professional, or indeed anybody at any level in pastoral and caring work which involved contact with the public and especially with children and the vulnerable, had acted as Dallat has acted in the past, then he /s he would have long been disbarred from working in that area ever again. There would have been professional disciplinary proceedings. In Dallas’s case, so egregious was the crossing of boundaries in the way that he was having sexual relationships with people with whom he was expected to have a trusted professional pastoral relationship, that I have no doubt that he would have been disbarred immediately and permanently. These bishops and priests still consider themselves special people to whom the rules and laws of the rest of the world do not apply, and think that they can create their owns standards and rules. They may not be able to see through that, but the rests of us can, and it is absolutely irresponsible for Dallat to be reintroduced to pastoral care and work at any level. If they do not want him to be laicised, then they could at least put him somewhere quiet and isolated for prayer and penance and give him some paper pushing job to do. He should be fortunate to get that much. And, when he transgresses again (as he no doubt will and probably has since his original unmasking), his victim will have a good case against the bishop and diocese for vicarious responsibility and liability for Dallat’s actions, because they will have facilitated by their lack of due care such behaviour by reintroducing him to pastoral work and care for which he is so clearly not suited, and indeed is a liability to others. Bishop Traeanor and VG O’Hagan and others could well find themselves in court answering very awkward questions for their decision to reintroduce Dallat to parish life when (not if) he transgresses again and harms vulnerable people. I am the only one that can see this ? In my work I regularly deal with equivalent issues concerning professionals, and the judgements that I and my colleague make take very seriously the protection of people, and we always err on that side in making decision about the suitability of people to carry out professional responsibilities. Not in the Church, apparently, where a clerical boys club seems to be more concerning with caring for its own ! Dallat is clearly unsuited to the role of parish priest with pastoral responsibility for people. Simple

    Parish-dodging and wannabe bishop Timo Bartlett has THREE – no less than 3!!! – priests helping him in the exhausting and arduous role of administering St Mary’s!!
    You couldn’t make it up. In other words, he will continue to parish dodge and pine for a pointy hat.
    Of course, he has another new fancy title to go with his qualifications of uselessness – Episcopal Vicar for Diocesan Forward Planning 😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🙄
    So, my brother priests and lay faithful in that illustrious Northern Diocese of Down and Connor – you can look forward to a glorious future indeed with Timio’s busily fiddling and footering as he strategises and deliberates.
    It’s so funny you could cry your eyes out 😭
    And where to even begin on Six Dinners Sid Dallat 😳

      Btw, we in the largest diocese are very relieved that Timo would seem to have “gone home”. He was spending a worrying amount of time in Dublin last year with all the Great Big Flop that was the WMOF! That didn’t half fall down round Tim’s ankles. The elastic fairly went twang in that big pair of knickers. No keep him in the North. He’s eyeing Dermo’s gaff!

      1. It sometimes happens that before he is appointed a bishop, a priest who has never worked a day of his life in a parish, is assigned to a parochial post for 9 months to a year. In that way he gains some street credibility.
        Could that be what’s happening here?

  36. I was in Maynooth the same time as Tim Bartlett. He was always ambitious. His room was like that of a lawyer, shelves, suitably appropriated tomes, clean as a whistle. The problem was students like him were conditioned to be ambitious. He ticked all the boxes for future ecclesiastical promotion. In his defence, however, he was a very polite and well behaved lad. Compared to the other slime balls and randy feckers I met there, he wasn’t the worst. At least he didn’t want to share a shower, a bed or a back door with you. Eugene O’Neill and his side kick, Conor Stainton- Polland, an Elvis impersonator who abandoned D&C for Liverpool Diocese were like two old women giggling and gossiping. Of those two though, Eugene was the better half. Conor S-P, I wouldn’t trust as far as I’d throw.

    1. Was he the guy who debated to a capacity-filled theatre in the Arts’ block why the LGBT student society should NOT be allowed to be set up in NUIM? If memory serves me right, that debate took place, ironically, during M. Ledwith’s final year there (1995).
      Surely, anyone taking that side of the debate would be seen to have impeccably orthodox credentials!

  37. Will I ever forget the night at evening prayer when the poor unfortunate cleric reading the psalm was meant to read, ‘heal my soul, for I have sinned against you’, and instead read, ‘seal my hole, for I have sinned against you’? Then there was the now late Phelim McKeown (God be good to him) who had to read Gerry Cambell’s reflection about the boy and the cherry tree, which went, ‘come, boy, climb up my trunk and play with my cherries’. Jerry Buttimer, now a senator, left the chapel screaming with laughter. Finally, there was poor old Kevin Bannon, who was tragically killed at twenty, reciting the rosary, ‘Friday, the joyful mysteries, no, Friday, glorious, no, Monday, joyful, Tuesday, glorious, or is it? Ah, Jaysus, what day is it?’.

    1. When I was in Clonliffe 70 – 73 lunch was in silence while a seminarian read from the dining room pulpit.

      A seminarian was supposed to read;

      “Jesus went into Peter’s house and found Peter’s mother in law in bed with fever”.

      Being very nervous he read:

      “Jesus went into Peter”s house and found Peter’s mother in law in bed with Peter”.

      The seminarian fainted and the 140 people in the room were helpless with laughter.

  38. Why on earth is Noel Treanor appointing three priests to Chapel Lane to assist Timothy Bartlett??? What is that all about??

    Is Bartlett so lazy and/or useless that he needs three assistants to run a parish that consists of a few wee streets???

    If, as someone suggested earlier, this could be a ploy to give Bartlett the semblance of having “worked in a parish” before he is “mitred”, then it is crass in the extreme!

    A man so desperate to be a bishop as Bartlett surely needs to be examined thoroughly as to his motives. That couldn’t be the sign of a normal and integrated man.

    What is Bartlett really all about? I hope the Nuncio is properly investigating this man.

    1. 100% agree. It defies logic. It can only mean that Bartlett is NEVER going to be in St Mary’s.

  39. Think I came off ok in the clergy changes…. anyway… reading the above reminded me of a book that was being read in the chapter house at Farnborough before Compline back in the day. Dom Aidan was reading from a book on St Paul by Daniel Rops and as the passage continued it began in great detail to describe the pagan practice in a certain area where maidens would rub themselves on phallic stones. It just seemed to get ever more graphic! Dom Aidan somehow managed to continue reading but his face was getting redder and redder and I along with others did not know how much longer we could hold in the guffaws of laughter which were trying to escape! To everyone’s relief, I’m sure and after what seemed an eternity the Prior indicated D. Aidan to close the reading and I suspect I took an outside route to enter the Church and en route release that pent up laughter!

  40. Why is Treanor appointing Gr Conleth Byrne to help him in matters of financial administration when he has super accountant Tienan O’Neill at the helm? Speaking O’Neills. Is the great thespian speaking Eugene O’Neill the same one who was held back a year in the seminary because his superiors had doubts over his calling? He should have been on the stage reciting Hamlet. There’s as much godliness about that guy as there is in my soup. A bloody idiotic social climber if ever there was one. I wonder does he still toast the Queen with his mate Francis Campbell. Strange that a patriotic west Brit should end up in republican new lodge

  49. St Mary’s is one of the Belfast parishes which form the mensal parish of the bishop. Hence the P.P. is actually the bishop so that the priest acting on his behalf is an Administrator. It’s an interesting appointment possibly forced by the jumping up and down by contributors on this blog. No matter what the hangers on in lisbreen say this blog scares the shit out of them.
