THIS WEEK I HEARD FROM A FORMER SEMINARIAN OF ST. PATRICK’S COLLEGE, THURLES WHO HAS WRITTEN TO THE GDPR OFFICER OF CASHEL AND EMLY DIOCESE REQUESTION HIS DATA.
He received the following reply:
“We have reviewed the documentation transferred to the Archdiocesan office on the closure of St. Patrick’s College and it does not contain any personal data relating to you. We will delete the copy passport which you sent to us and will not retain a copy on file.
If you are not satisfied with this response, you may refer the matter to the Data Protection Commission, 21 Fitzwilliam Square South, Dublin 2, D02 RD28.“
The ex seminarian is indeed referring his case to the Data Protection Commissioner.
He finds it difficult to believe that, having spent two years in the seminary, there is no record of his time there.
He is particularly confused because during his time there he made several statements to the Gardai on happenings there!
He is also deeply concerned because, during his time there a fellow seminarian, Michael Deegan RIP, committed suicide in 1994 in St Patrick’s College, Thurles.
The ex seminarian had heard from Michael that he was being bullied and stalked by homosexuals within the seminary.
These people were putting gay pornography under Michael’s door during the night.
The ex seminarian brought the pornography to the college authorities.
Nothing was ever done and poor Michael took his own life.
