ANOTHER KILLALOE PRIEST PULLED IN BY LUGS MONAHAN FOR “JOHN THOMAS” PROBLEMS!

FR GER FITZGERALD CO PP ENNIS

The Co-PP of Ennis – Father Ger Fitzgerald – has been accused by a lady parishioner of being her lover.

The accusation was made on Facebook by one female in a dispute with another female, with her claiming she was “fucking a priest in this town” – Ennis.

The two sparring females seem to be an Yvonne Drake and a Tina Whelan?

Is this the same Tina Whelan?

PAT SAYS

I have known Father Ger since he was a seminarian. He is a very likeable young man and as far as I know, is liked by parishioners.

The problem is – if you live a double life, as a public figure – a day of reckoning will always come.

I don’t know if Ger was sexually involved with more than one woman at a time – and if he was did he not realise he was skating on thin ice.

Has he not heard about: “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”?

He also lives and ministers in a rural area where a double life is extra difficult to hide.

Ger was never suited to celibacy. He was too fond of the “mons veneris” and all that goes with it.

Mind you, Ger is a rarity. He is one of the few RC heterosexual priests in captivity.

He is only 39. He has the rest of his life to live.

If he is wise he will embrace a new career and be free to be a hubbie and a daddy.

Last night Fintan Monahan confirmed that the matter of Fr Fitzgerald was being processed through all the proper civil and ecclesiastical routes.

Fintan has been under pressure. This is the second sexual priestly scandal in Killaloe in as many weeks and from the the pastoral area of Ennis.

The other one was the case of Fr Carey masturbation on Salthill beach in Galway.

Today, Ger is still listed as a Co PP

I would condemn protestant, Muslims for not blessing gay unions. Its love not the sin that unites them. I knew some gays as I recognised some of them werent straight from age 5 to 7 . I didn’t understand why they were so different cos I was v v young until late teens that they were gays attracted to males. I did ask one of them, how did u become gay? He said he was born with it as he knew he was gay at age 4 or 5. So I respect his view even i was going through gay bashing period v v long time ago. They need to be loved as they were looking for love.

Found rcc too legalistic for my liking. There was no mention of ‘mortal’ sin in the scripture as they only mentioned just the word ‘sin’. So I’m guessing here that rcc evolved and split the terminology of sin into two type of sins.

It’s a bit late to be starting a new career at the age of 39 and having “Catholic priest” on your CV won’t help. Gone are the days when unqualified ex-priests could re-invent themselves as schoolteachers and social workers. Isn’t the ex-rector of Wonersh a chimney sweep (and probably making a good living from it).

I don’t agree having former priest on your CV will stop you having a good career or entering the professions. If you are honest and say you could not cope with celibacy then employers are sympathetic. If you’ve been a clerical nonce, like anyone, you will fail to get on. The problem is that there is no help at all for guys to leave priesthood, and many remain out of fear. If you go, you may be lucky to get a couple of thousand pounds which does not go far. Your so called ‘clerical friends’ will ghost you and the inevitable family disappointment should it involve having to come out. I was fortunate in that my bishop was prepared to give my first employer a reference – but I guess most would not do that now, or if they did it would be no more than a gravestone one.
The army provides former soldiers with skills on finding employment when military life ends. Help is needed for formers priests with career guidance, CV assistance, job interview preparation and financial assistance. It’s a shame that there is no body in existence that could pool together the skills and experiences of former priests to help those who are leaving or thinking about leaving.

1. From a cursory look at this post, these women sound like classy characters ! Not ! I don’t like listening to such language, especially from the mouths of women.
2. + Pat is right. If you live a double life as a priest, it will eventually catch up with you. Do not be surprised, Fathers !
3. The real issue here is about this priest’s publicly professed vow of celibacy, and that will be something that he implicitly by his status as a priest is portraying to all around him, and yet his private life is in stark contrast to that. No matter which way you cut it, his actions and the way he is living his life, is hypocritical, untruthful, and lacking in integrity. The facts are simple for priests. If the Church requires you to be celibate, and if you freely of your own will make that promise, then you have only one option – that is to live a celibate life. Until such time as the Church changes this requirement – and no time soon, it seems – then that requirement still exists, no matter how fair it is or how suited on unsuited you are to keeping it. If you are not able to keep your promise of celibacy, dear Fathers, then do the honest thing and move out and on. Please stop thinking that you have a right to live a life that is lacking in integrity and openness, and believing that you can carry it off. Because, as this has shown, we laity do know what you are up to, and it is inevitable that you will be outed. Save yourselves the trouble. Save us having to have our trust in our priests continually chipped away at. There is not much left to chip away. Do the right thing. You will feel better for it. We will be relieved.

There were female lay students in Maynooth who deliberately set out to seduce seminarians, which is yet another reason why Maynooth shouldn’t have lay students.

@11.16
Those who were most concerned by the female lay students were the gay seminarians who were jealous when peers were able to hold a conversation with females. I should warn you that speaking to a female does not equate with intention to get into her knickers, or get her out of them.

Years later it turned out that the gay seminarians who were concerned most about this issue were focused on speaking with other gay seminarians whose knickers they were frequenting regularly.

I recall my formator was surprised that I was able to hold conversation with both males and females. His surprise was only surpassed by my bishop’s review of my psychological report going into first divine – which is summed up in the statement “It says here that you are hetrosexual?” When I agreed with the report he put it on the table and never spoke about it again.

Nothing against priests who are gay but having a few priests about who are hetrosexual is good. It helps relate to the 90% of male in the congregation who also identify as hetrosexual. We need a cross-section of people in ministry.

Fr Ger, is an interesting guy. Nice to see a hetrosexual priest about. I know several of the lay students used to fancy him and there is also the reality in ministry that some parishioners form unhealthy attachments. I can imagine this being a problem for Ger. His love of the message of Christ is undoubted. He is loyal to the mission and good with bringing people along.

Has he broken his commitment to being chaste; I cannot say because I have neither slept with him not witnessed him sleep with another.

Is he the victim of malicious postings on the internet. Perhaps. There are all sorts of folk out there. If he slept with her she should produce evidence to the bishop – not to facebook. Personal relationships are best resolved privately. Fr Ger is without doubt a benefit and comfort to many and his good ministry to them should be allowed continue – at least until some credible evidence says he is not worthy of his ministry.

I wonder is he continued to meet with you post-ordination +Pat, would you have posted this blog today or tried to resolve it privately?

Like

@+Pat 3.02pm
Thank you for your honest reply. I suppose what I meant was if Ger had remained on good terms with you would he be the example pulled out of the hat today, as opposed to another.
To be honest I felt worse when he came out about Maynooth being great when he was there. I know from many sources that it was not – but I sometimes wonder was his arm twisted by someone to make the statement. I honestly think that ministry will never get the best out of him as long as celibacy is required.
He is also a member of a class that appears here regularly. One of the Kalendariums on my shelf records him as having joined with Fergal O’Neill, (mentioned here earlier today), Thomas McHugh, Ryan McAlear… and others. Not many went on to be ordained from that class; and it appears several have already left. Some made it to deaconate but that was all. Their dean that year was newly appointed, and followed them into the role as senior dean before leaving priesthood himself. A bleak time for ‘return on investment’ under Archbishop Farrell & Hughy Connolly.

7.24: Mr. Buckley has by niw priven his hatred, nastiness and vengeance. He gascwell priven that HE IS NOT OF CHRIST. He is now a master practitioner of his new religion – NASTYISM – whose headquarters is at THE ORATORY, LARNE – OR THE RATTERY as some locals call it!! NASTYISM at its most virulent, as potent a killer as covid 19.

Father Ger is a well respected priest in the town of Ennis, the rumours that have spread have been made up by a very jealous and sad woman. Father Ger and Tina Whelan have been good friends for a long time. There is no way they could possibly be seeing each other as they are never alone theres always a 3rd party with them. Tina and Ger also do a lot for this community and this is the thanks there getting for all they’ve done and continue to do. Ye should be ashamed of the bullying ye continue to do online. Father Ger doesnt deserve any of this hes an extremely nice man and well loved here in Ennis.

If priests had any sense the would stick to the old adage ” No particular friendships” then there would be no reason for all the evil gossips to spread their lies, usually because of jealousy.

Yvonne Drake is well known for spreading rumours around Ennis. She never was and never will be with Father Ger in anyway. Ger is a good man who only trys to help people in their time of need! He is a good man, good priest and very good company! He knows how to have a laugh and joke but he also knows his limits, Father Ger is by far the best priest to ever come to Cloughleigh and to Ennis Town. If that man deserves anything it’s a reward for all he does for the community and the people in it.

Like

but Ms Drake didn’t say it was Fr Ger. If you are insinuating that it was, then he merits a right of reply. Will Fr Ger be taking defamation action against the lady in question, will he be making a statement, will the Diocese clarify the situation, will Ms Drake be retracting her comments?

Like

Yvonne Drake did say it was Father Ger if you can read it correctly. Yvonne has also kept quiet ever since and deleted her social media as she knows shes in the wrong. Your comment is irrelevant, you must be as bad as the other people who love to spread rumour and gossip.

7:48 well sweetheart, you’re the one confirming it was Fr Ger, so perhaps ‘you must be as bad as the other people who love to spread rumour and gossip’

Having seen the picture I am somewhat incredulous now. Tina looks old enough to be his mother and is somewhat plump. I can’t see him throwing away his vocation for a bit of jiggery pokery with her….

oh wait, I have found a Tina Whelan in Ennis. Is her profile picture with two young men? (likely her grown sons)

Bishop Fintan has confirmed there is a Fr Ger problem because of the rumours spread around which isnt Gers fault and Ger has no control over, so therefore “Bishop Pat” you should grow up and stop with your bitching online and think of your own priorities!

Fr Ger has a weakness for the fairer sex and always had. The current situation is the result.

And how would you know? Ger treats everybody the same no matter sex or race. How dare you make accusations that you know nothing about. And your meant to be a man of God hahaha your a disgrace!

Like

8:25: In fairness to Pat, he is not the one who made the accusation – that was Ms Drake. Furthermore, you have made a number of rants about Fr Ger’s good deeds for the people of Ennis etc. Let’s be clear, no one here has taken that away from him – no one has denigrated or called into question his pastoral care and charitable works. (Also, its’ you’re not your).

The majority of you people make me sick,Fr Ger is by far a much better man than you pat buckley will ever be and you’re “groupies ” are pathetic. Fr Ger’s only mistake is that he cares too much. He had done more for Cloughleigh and Ennis than any priest has ever done. Tina Whelan is a good honest respectable woman who has also fallen foul of Drake. Anyone of you sad people believing this bulls##t would want to cop on. Pat Buckley knows more about donkeys than people because he REALLY REALLY likes donkeys,you sick individual

Who are you to judge Fr.Ger when the church have been proven time and time again to be sexually abusing and exploiting children using the church as an excuse to abuse power!!!! Fondling little boys and don’t get me started on the mother and baby homes. The church as a whole is a fucking disgrace at least Yvonne is of legal age and can give consent unlike the thousands upon thousands of children that had no say!

No you’re a disgrace, it wasn’t The Church that did any of these things, it was evil men who did not follow the teachings of The Church who are to blame, get your facts right and mind your language you’re a disgrace!

It was the teaching of your church that sexual crimes against children were to be kept secret…and away from the police. Did you forget this, you ignorant retard?

Father Ger does not have a job he has a vocation to priestly life and part of that priestly vow is to stay celibate.
His caring and understanding is not in question it is the celibacy.
it has been said by many seminarians and clergy Father Ger struggles with this so it is simple He should leave.
He will never have a happy life in the priesthood if he is attracted to ladies.
It is not a job as he is not a social worker.

Like

Prove to us here it’s not true, Ms Drake states she has had sexual relations with Fr Ger. He has said in the past he doesn’t believe in celibacy and won’t keep his promise. Not one person has said anything bad about Fr Ger or doubts his pastoral care. I don’t doubt he has done alot of good but no smoke without fire.

A very positive reference from someone whose first language isn’t English. Ger must have helped lots of people.

Fr Ger is not only an excellent priest he also cares a lot for the community, he does everything he can for anyone who needs a helping hand. He would go to the end of the earth if he could for a stranger in need, not many priests even bother with the community as much as he does. He doesn’t have to do what he does for the community he chooses to do good. Fr Ger really does not deserve any of this hes a good man. Shame on you people who are trying to ruin Fr Gers reputation, maybe ye should stop and think it’s not just his reputation it’s his life. He’s only human.

Like

When Fr Ger realises that sacred priesthood is not his calling, may I suggest he retrains as an English teacher? He will have plenty of work in Ennis assisting with basic literacy.

Oh the irony of it all! Everyone anonymously making smart and snide ignorant comments about the people of Ennis! It’s funny how ye are so quick to stick up for bishop Buckley but talk down about those in Ennis! The only man who treats everyone the same and doesn’t judge is father Ger Fitzgerald! For all yere shite talk he’s the only one out of ye who accepts everyone so maybe next time stick yere irrelevant opinions somewhere else
