‘May he rest in peace
Father Lomasney was at the epicentre of the Kildorrery Gay Altar Sex incident.
At the time it was claimed that the other person involved was a Maynooth seminarian.
The bishop of Cloyne, William Crean responded to the scandal by saying and doing nothing publicly
It was claimed at the time that Father Lomasney was sent for therapy.
The death notice says he died “peacefully” which can imply he died while sleeping.
His funeral is taking place in his home family parish and not in the parishes he served.
At the time of the Kildorrery incident it was said that Fr Lomasney had a long term alcohol problem?
Maybe he had other addictions too?
Hopefully he is now at peace.
