This blog, its authors and its readers have not forgotten about Silverstream and its scandals.
Last we heard was that Prior Kirby was back as an ordinary monk and one of the community, Elijah, was made prior, even though he is not a priest.
Sources tell us that Kirby’s health has become more fragile.
Sources tell us that the Irish police, the Garda, have more or less finished their investigation of Silverstream’s finances.
We are led to believe that they have recommended prosecutions.
SEMINARIANS AT RISK?
Another source has revealed to us that at least one seminarian who went on retreat there in the past experienced secual hartassment.
The brave whistleblower has not returned to the monastery and it is highly unlikely he will.
He has been the subject of a ludicrous and vicious whispering campaign and outlandish accusations.
However, he has been working closely with the Garda and is a highly truthful and reliable witness.
I am alerting readers to the likelihood of a major scandal at Silverstream as this year progresses.
Meanwhile, Silverstream has the full support of the incumbent of Meath – Tom “The Mack” Deenihan.
