Even though Ger Fitzgerald has been credibly abused of sexual intercourse with an Ennis lady parishioner, he has been allowed by his bishop, Fintan Monahan, to cheekily preside over all the Holy Week and Easter ceremonies.
If Ger Fitzgerald was a nurse, doctor, civil servant, policeman, social worker etc he would have been asked to step aside, on full pay, pending the outcome of the investigation.
But once again, we see the clerics, regarding themselves, as different and superior to others.
They say: “Do what we say, but don’t do what we do”.
In the meantime, while Ger basks in the adulation of his friends and parishioners, the woman involved is under threat and attack in Ennis to thenpoint that dhe has had to go into hiding.
A week or so ago the woman contacted me and I have been supporting her everyday since.
She has told me her story, and her proofs, and I believe her 100%.
Furthermore, shevhascsent her proofs to Fintan Monahan.
Killaloe sources are saying that Ger is denying everything and basically calling the woman a liar.
Ger is reported to be in hiding – in the home of an Ennis single parent, whose name is known to the blog.
He is also receiving support from his long term friend, Tina Whelan, a community worker.
This story is a scandal calling out for honesty and action from the bishop and diocese of Killaloe.
THE NORTHERN IRELAND ALLEGED PRIEST RAPIST.
The alleged priest rapist from Northern Ireland contacted his alleged victim in the past few days asking him to drop the allegations against him!
When the victim told me this I regarded the priest’s actions as an attempt to pervert the course of justice and imnediately informed senior officers in the PSNI – Police Service for Northern Ireland.
The contact is now being investigated.
I have also contacted the priest’s bishop and asked that hecstep aside on full pay pending the outcome of the police investigation.
The bishop has done nothing.
The Catholic Church has told us that it has completely changed when it comes to treating sexual complaints seriously and urgently.
But here we have two Irish bishops, in two Irish dioceses, allowing priests to work on as normal after serious complaints have been lodged.
This will not change until we see bishops in handcuffs being led from courthouses on the way to prison.
