We are now seeing very serious questions being asked about three Irish monasteries:
SILVERSTREAM in Meath diocese.
GLENSTAL Cashel and Emily.
MOUNT MELLARY in Waterford and Lismore.
There are sexual accusations against two superiors:
Mark Kirby – the former Prior of Silverstream.
Richard Purcell – the current abbot of Mount Mellary.
The most serious allegations are made against Richard Purcell.
His Abbot General revealed to me sexual problems he had in Roscrea.
Richard Purcell should immediately step down as abbot.
If he wants to brazen it out then the abbot General and his council in Rome should depose Purcell.
This blog will keep readers updated about all developments in all three monasteries.
EX ABBOT COLLINS
New information is emerging about ex abbot Collins time in Jerusalem.
The informations is leading to suspicions about behaviour that caused a monastery in Jerusalem to have damning graffiti written on its walls and a real fear by the Israeli police that the monastery could be attacked or burned.
This turned into some type if a threat of international relations between the Vatican and Israel being affected?
REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ON RICHARD PURCELL
The Blog in association with very concerned others is asking priests or people with information with regard to the sexual allegations with regard Richard Purcell to come forward – for the Good of the Church and Mount Mellary.
I understand, that for various reasons people might not wish to approach me.
In that event they can approach Mr Robert Hourigan who has no association with me in any way.
Mr Hourigan and his family had a long history of involvement with Mount Mellary and had relations who lived and died as monks there.
Mt Hourigan, a practising Catholic, with a loyalty to his church, can be contacted on:
