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?

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
