A scandal has broken out at Silverstream Monastery in Co. Meath according to a Meath diocesan priest.
According to my Meath priest informant the Gardai are investigating an alleged sexual assault and whether or not funds have been misappropriated.
The person allegedly sexually assaulted was another monk, and thankfully not a minor.
All involved have provided signed statements to the Gardai.
The prior, Dom Kirby has “taken sick leave”.
Here is the ON SICK LEAVE man speaking
Silverstream is a diocesan monastery – under the control of the diocesan bishop.
Bishop Smith never conducted a VISITATION in all ten years of its existence.
Deenihan is out of his depth and has appointed an investigatory team to go in consisting of:
Dom Brendan Coffey abbot of Glenstal
Dom Richard Purcell of Mount Mellary
Monsignor Gearoid Dullea of Cork
Abbot Coffey has been made the interim abbot by Deenihan.
The blog has learned that Silverstream is under investigation by the CDF in Rome – Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
