DOM RICHARD PURCELL MOUNT MELLARY – COPY OF COMPLAINT TO ABBOT GENERAL.

Richard Purcell
Abbot General

Dear Abbot General,

I wanted to pass on to you the information I have received from a priest Killaloe diocese.

I wish to make a formal complaint against Fr Purcell and ask for a formal investigation to be undertaken and to be informed of the outcome.

+ Pat Buckley

INFORMATION FROM DIOCESAN PRIEST

“Pat, the bishops of Killaloe know a thing or two about Dickie Purse. Remember Willy Walsh? His brother or cousin was a monk in Roscrea.

And that shite Kunty Reilly, now in Cashel, has the dirt on the guy Dickie fucked in Roscrea, his fuck buddy monk who was a priest of Killaloe who tried his vocation at Roscrea for a while.

“Kunty” O Reilly

O Reilly shafted the same Killaloe priest in a very nasty way, booted the poor guy out without any justice. Kunty had the dirt on the guy, used it and was merciless. I know all this because I’m a Killaloe priest but I have to be careful.

Kunty advised the Galway priest who was caught by the police at Salthill. Imagine if Drennan knew that! Kunty working against +Galway. Told him not to shit on his own doorstep.

Small world too cos the Salthill ex priest, Lee, was a regular at the Boiler House and could never keep his big mouth shut. Thats why his classmates in Maynooth called him Galway Bay! He blabbed around about the Killaloe priest being in the Boiler House, same priest who suffered at Kunty Reillys hands and who was fuck buddy of Dickie at Roscrea.

An ex seminarian friend of mine was fucked bareback by Dickie Purse in the Boiler House. The poor guy was lying on his back in a cubicle and Dickie landed in all horny, jumped on him and rode him without a word, yes, no, nothing.

My old friend was stunned. He couldn’t  put a name on Dickie at first but knew the face. He had been on retreat in Roscrea. He put two and two together later.

Dickie is one cocky bollox. When he was a theology student in Oxford, there were lots of stories about him, doing the rounds of OSB and SJ bedrooms! By the way, Coffey at Glenstal was a Killaloe priest. He’s salt of the earth, a really kind genuine guy. No double life for him. He must have heard about Dickie. Don’t know how he puts up with him when they meet.

Brendan Coffey

LATER

Your friend Bill Mulvihill could tell you about the Killaloe priest fuck buddy of Dickie. They are friends and I hear Bill is loyal to him.

“Lugs” Monahan

I had a lot of contact with Bishops House in Ennis before Lugs Monahan came there. That’s how I know about the former PP of Kildysart and his travails at Roscrea.

Someone mentioned Gerard Gillen on here a few days ago, who is not dead. Gillen is a big friend of Dickie and Dickie moves in those Dublin musical circles. Gillen was a big friend of Ledwith too. There’s a clique there. xxxxxxx had a close shave with a male student in Maynooth, bur got away without an official complaint. Be careful with him. He’ll bring out the big guns to defend Dickie if you dig too much.”

LATER

“I had to go quiet. Was warned the big guns gunning for you over Dickie Purse. I didn’t  think I’d be identified as source of info to you, but was naive. The bastards seem to have to their spies in Killaloe. I warned you about Gilken and the musical crowd. The Knights of Columbanus are very powerful. Friends in the police who won’t obey the law. They’ll monitor the blog and breach gdpr snooping on people posting and their ip addresses to locate them. Be careful. They don’t want Dickie going down.

Go easy on the Killaloe priest who was in Roscrea. He’s fragile enough and now in lay life in Dublin. He had the honesty to acknowledge his double life, not our Dickie though.

There was a shagfest near Melleray a few months ago organised by Dickie and some young Dominicans. I see someone else on your blog is on to them. You need to check the Irish OP, in Rome, teaching now at Sant Anselmo, the OSB place. He’s the boyfriend of the xxxxxx there, but that doesn’t stop him screwing any cute hole within 1000 miles. Total slut. I hear too that Dickie has been known to service two of the Glenstal guys and the odd C of I, very ecumenical our Dickie with his dick”.

In June 2020, during a podcast interview, Starkey stated that “Slavery was not genocide” because “so many damn blacks” survived.

That they were rightly named Angles, because they had the faces of angels. Something like this.

But it never crossed the mind of ‘His Holiness’ to condemn the evil trade. Of course, why would it have? Didn’t Paul the sainted apostle approve it in his letter to Philemon?

9.38 and increasingly self-referential (by talking about yourself talking about naughtiness) 2.10: Paul’s letters weren’t in private envelopes and were as far against slavery as was possible in those days and much more so than usual (he was challenging Philemon to develop a solution rather than micro-dictating one to him). He addresses personal issues within churches such as consideration and peaceful self-assertion. Your usual overkill defeats your actual good point about Georgetown. And Starkey’s quotation in this format, though deeply bland, is apposite of you to bring in. (You remind me of the arch-Romanist, too thinly disguised, who fortunately went away.) Contemporary bishops only dangle politics so much, because they can’t remember what else to teach that’s equally important in addition.

Following his ordination in 1989 he had a brief stint as a curate before embarking on almost two decades of study in TCD, Germany and the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland, where he trained to be a GP, all the while remaining a priest and occasionally turning up at public Masses. Did the people of Dromore pay for all that study, including the medical training.
He was then spotted as as a doctor in Glasgow though may now be practising in Dublin. It is all a bit unusual for a priest.
Stephen Crossan seems to be well and truly disappeared.

Anon@ 6:53: Perhaps O’Connell is just another priest who quickly realised that the priestly life and its raison d’etre is all a sham. Perhaps he copped on fairly quickly, but also realised the many perks and privileges it could potentially afford him, so he capitalised by undertaking further more useful studies under it’s funding patronage. And of course the stupid hierarchy fell for it hook line and sinker!
At least he may have been quicker on the uptake than those clergy who blindly had “faith” (!!!!) and despite their misgivings, held on until it was too late to opt out, so they remain on as the empty vessels sounding off, …..just like so many found here on +Pat’s blog.

No it is not, Pat at 10:35am. There are plenty of people in the Catholic Church who have a personal relationship with Jesus and who are doing His Will. They are not in any way “blocked” from Jesus who warned us that scandals would come. He also gave us the parable of the wheat and the weeds. These corrupt bishops, abbots, priests, etc are not the sum total of the Church. There has been scandal and corruption from the get go. The Church continues and the faithful people, priests and laity, get on with living their Christian lives. You ask yourself, Pat, are YOU doing God’s Will? For example, allowing this young Scottish seminarian to be hounded by some vicious lunatic? You allow anonymous persons to come on to your blog and say whatever they like about whomsoever, naming names, without any regard to the truthfulness of what is said or the effect it could have on the person or persons. You allow it to happen. Is that doing God’s Will? You are breaking the 5th and the 8th commandments and you are facilitating others to commit grave sins against charity and justice. It’s diabolical in every sense of that word. Examine your own conscience and take stock of your own behaviour.

Now-now 😬 Don’t be a deceiver. There is no such thing, in the Romanist Church, as having a personal relationship with Christ; you know this very well indeed. Such a relationship would make Jesus, through the exercise of individual conscience, the final and supreme arbiter of good conduct rather than the teaching of ‘Holy Mother Church’. Such a relationship would place the pope and bishops as ‘also-rans’, and their teaching as not necessarily obligatory. We can’t have that now, can we?

Traditionally, Roman Catholicism has defined the exercise of personal conscience as decision INFORMED BY CHURCH TEACHING. This is tantamount to a relationship, not with Jesus Christ, but with the pope and bishops.

I have a real difficulty with the argument that corrupt people are not the whole of the church. When I asked my parish priest about this when I was in my teens he told me that the church is holy because it makes unholy people holy so I could expect it to be full of sinners. I think it is difficult to express a belief that the church is holy Sunday by Sunday when it is evident that the scoundrels are not unusual but actually the church is run in a way which is, if not corrupt, virtually criminal.
Priests on here point to odd examples of virtue, but then are arrogant, abusive, foul mouthed, show no suggestion of being shocked by anything which comes up here, and then resort to death threats!
I cannot reconcile what I see in the church with its claim to be holy, and am inclining to a position where the church which calls itself Catholic isn’t the Catholic church because it doesn’t show the notes.
I do know that the church must be indefectible but I can’t see where it is.

I feel sad that you always avoid the hard questions and never allow yourself the mirror of gospel transparency. That mirror will reflect your conscience mire honestly. Mercy towards those who fail and who – yes- abysmally fail, morally and spirituly, is a requisite of the GOSPEL and none of us deserve to have nails hammered into our hands.

Your mercy call, in practice, is just ‘let’s give Father yet another chance’, no matter what he has done, to whom he has done it, and how many times he offended. It’s casuistry from Hell, and historically it has benefitted ‘Father’ over his victims.

There are many factors accounting for discordant and contradictory behaviour by clerics. I do not believe in further inflicting shame or guilt or humiliation on already discredited people. There’s a vicious witch hunt out for certain people. I cannot imagine Jesus commanderring his disciples to become a lynch mob and bring clubs with them to break apart the sinner. There is something very unsettling and questionable about the hate-filled, nasty and vengeful rhetoric of some comments. It’s as if a war has been declared by opposing factions in the presbyterate and some are delighted with the downfall of fellow colleagues. Christ, of course, wants all of us to be people of moral and spiritual integrity but do we need to drag people through the gutter?

“In August 2001, Father Martin undertook a sabbatical year studying at the Jesuit School of Theology, Berkeley, California, and separately at Tabgha Farm – Centre for Ecology & Spirituality, located in Cessnock, New South Wales, Australia.”

Firstly, what lay person gets a sabbatical. The only people I know to get them apart from priests are academics, supposedly to allow them to research and to write scholarly articles and books.

But why does a country priest need to have a year-long jolly in two continents? With course fees, accommodation, travel, subsistence and sundries that must cost the thick end of €100k. What does the poor laity, who could only dream of such a year, get out of it?

6.06: And thank God we have many good priest who remain very faithful to the ideal of priesthood and ministry. They deserve our support and prayers. These same priests, good human beings are very aware of their ssinfulness and failures but do their utmost in ministry to live the gospel of Christ. Let’s be fair.

Well, I would thank God, if I could find those many good priests. Perhaps they’re in hiding, like the Apostles after Jesus ‘arrest. But-but yes, they are, of course, still good priests. Obviously. 🙄

That Tabgha Farm place in NSW that he went on his world tour is now kaput. It was sold to the Hare Krishnas lol and is now called New Gokola.

117 monks in total in that photo. There were more, 150 monks, just before the wonderful Vatican II, after which they declined rapidly.

Yes. Well, death does have a habit of decimating numbers. Annoying, granted; but that’s life, in a manner of speaking.

What were you gibbering about Vatican II?

Like

Yes. I don’t think the comments yesterday took account of how Vatican 2 affected monasteries, especially as before it life was very rigid indeed. I think the books about Merton give a good account of Cistercian life in the fifties.
Apparently New Melleray Abbey has a gym for the monks because they no longer labour. Can monastic life without physical labour really be called Cistercian? I’d call it at the more comfy end of Benedictine life meself.

Monks died before Vatican II, but monasteries got new members. After Vatican II many monks left and they got far fewer new members.

Was it necessary to humiliate him so publicly like this? Could have privately sent a letter to his superior. Dealing with peoples lives here. Not very Christian.

No doubt his monastery is claiming a charity tax exemption, so their… well, let’s just say, “activities” are of public interest.

Let’s hope he goes the same way as, for example, Rory Coyle, a flat in north London within walking distance of the Tube plus £25,000 a year. It’s only fair.

Any hot slim good looking priests up for party and sex fun in the holylands, Belfast tonight. Young Uni lads in GAA sports gear. We have a bet going here from last night that if one of us gets to shag a priest tonight it’s worth a few quid to us.
