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.
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.
