Stories are emerging from various international sources of Kirby’s strange life of homosexual orientations/actions and his efforts to come across as a holy monk.
He has also portrayed himself, internationally, as a man to whom Jesus speaks to from the Eucharistic Tabernacle.
He has confessed to several people about his life as an active homosexual monk.
He has indicated his homosexual activity both inside monasteries and outside of them.
One person remembers being present when Kirby introduced himself to young men as “a same sex attracted man”.
Much of this behaviour happened in Canada.
I could go into more detail – and will if necessary.
His behaviour in Canada, etc, gives massive credibility to the complaint made by the now “missing” Silverstream monk.
This monk spoke of Kirby asking him to look under his clothes at an alleged insect bite and then showing the younger monk his genitalia.
The exclusion if men over 35 years old from Silverstream is a very strange requirement. Has this anything to do with Kirby’s personal predelicitions?
It has become absolutely clear that Kirby is not suitable to monastic life and most certainly not suitable to be a monastic superior involved in the formation of young men.
There are you men responsible for sorting out Silverstream:
1. The Bishop of Meath. Tom Dennihan.
2. The temporary superior of Silverstream – Brendan Coffey the Abbot of Glenstal Abber, Limerick
The day to day running is now in the hands of Coffey.
Coffey is the one doing all the communications about Silverstream with everyone else.
Coffey is not coping well.
He seems to have invited Kirby back to live in Silverstream.
And he seems to want to protect Kirby at all costs – even though his protection of Kirby is coming across as hysterical.
I must ask ‘has someone got something on Coffey?
Of course Coffey’s job is made more complicated by the ight of his fellow visitor DOM Purcell of Mount Mellary who is now under investigation for sexual matters himself!
Imagine! Purcell is investigating Kirby!
A further complication for Coffey is the rumour that two Glenstal monks are linked to Purcell!
Are we beginning to see the bursting of a big anurism in the belly of Irish monasticism?
And poor old Coffey is trying to stem the bleed.
Kirby needs to retire away from Silverstream.
Coffey and Deenihan need to appoint an external prior or close the place down.
Purcell needs to relinquish the abbots position, become a dedicated choir monk or go back to the world.
And then Coffey can look after his affairs at Glenstal.
