Below are TWO of the hundreds of texts Ger Fitzgerald sent his girlfriend over their six month relationship.
“If it wasn’t for ny job we’d be doing each other nightly”.
So Ger regards the priesthood as a JOB? Telling that?
“So you’ll be naked again in a few minutes…tell me when you’re at the gate”.
Did Ger like to be greeted by his GF naked? An extra turn on?
FACTS OF GER FITZGERALD CASE:
1. Ger had a 6 month relationship with this lady.
2. Ger and her went out every Sunday to Limerick for food.
3. Ger, who is as tight as a duck’s ass brought the lady on the Sundays to a chip shop in Limerick 🦆
4. Ger and the lady planned to take the relationship to the next level and have intercourse.
5. As soon as the intercourse was over Ger hopped out of bed, claimed to have OCD and needed to get home 999.
6.Ger later told the lady that he only had full sexual intercourse ONCE with a woman, because of his job.
7. Ger explained that had applied the “intercourse only once” rule to all his previous women.
8. The woman was interviewed in oerson by the diocesan secretary, Fr Ger Nash and diocesan safeguarding officer, Cleo Yates.
9. Both Fr Nash and Ms Yates told the lady they believed her 100%.
10. Bishop Monahan has told the ladyhe totally believed her story.
11. Bishop Monahan told the lady’s friend, Tommy, that Ger Fitzgerald. was denying everything.
Fintan Monahan should have immediately Fr Jerry Carey and Fr Ger Fitzgerald from active ninistry and submit tgem to a canonical process.
WHY HAS FINTAN BEEN SO WEAK AND INEFFECTIVE;
1. Is Fintan afraid?
2. Is Fintan weak?
3. Is Fintan compromised?
4. Is Fintan incompetent?
4. Is Fintan under pressure from clerics?
5. Is Ger refusing to move and declaring independence in Clocklee with the support of his female cohorts there?
In the meantime, a priest who has been shagging women, one at a time, of course, is still mounting an altar on a daily basis, and preaching about woundedness.
And Fintan has nothing to say about the WMD – weapon of mass destruction in the priest’s trousers.
Women of Clare! Beware!
DIARMUID MARTIN APPOINTED TO ARMAGH

OCD wouldn’t explain his behaviour. A more likely explanation would be he knows he shouldn’t be having sex like this and so feels guilty. He may even feel he isn’t in control of his sexuality, in which case he needs to sort himself.
Not being funny but this is the kind of thing that should have been sorted before ordination.
When you see that picture of lugs you want to set about thrashing those huge lugs with a lump of wood for his failure to act. He is an impotent bishop and Francis should remove him. I do hope the Apostolic Noncio has marked lugs cards. I mean what were they thinking appointing someone with lugs like that.
Sadly people just put up with crap and clergy maybe frightened but the Papal Nuncio is the communicator to Rome.
They called Eamonn Martin Dr. Diarmuid Martin 😂😂😂
Lugs is obviously utterly incompetent and completely unfit to be a diocesan bishop (another Brown disaster).
He’s being laughed at by this Ger fella who is putting it up to him and acting like the hypocritical thug he obviously is.
Having several thickos defending him and playing the old in denial/shoot the messenger is not going to save him.
He’s a disgrace and has to go .
The question is will Lugs act before its taken out of his hands.
I was born in a messed up century,
My favourite flavoured sweets are raspberry amphetamines
I bought a car, Beretta, age 16
I brush my teeth with bleach ’cause I ain’t got time for cavities
My daddy put a gun to my head
Said, “If you kiss a boy, I’m gonna shoot you dead”
So I tied him up with gaffer tape and I locked him in a shed.
Will you pray for me?
As a woman I really can’t fathom why someone would get involved with a priest or married man. I just don;’t get it. While it’s true that a layperson doesn’t make a vow of celibacy, is there no responsibility on the other person in this situation to have some sense of integrity? For what it’s worth, I have no connection whatsoever with Killaloe and I had never heard of Fr Ger until I read this story on the blog. I’m not defending him either. I just think that there are two parties in this.
Loneliness, a mutual attraction, the thrill of an illicit relationship, a challenge etc. etc. etc.
All Ger wanted was a fling while Yvonne was looking for a serious relationship, it was always going to end in tears. It’s like an extra marital affair, you’re going to get found out sooner or later while your safe enough with a short term fling.
Sure, I get those things in the sense of an initial attraction but following through into a relationship? I’m not judging anyone – I’m just a bit flummoxed by it. It can only ever end in tears surely.
The Heart wants what the Heart wants. You can’t help who you fall in love with.
I think you have to. And honestly I’ve been in a situation where I felt a strong attraction . If it is love, well that means that I want what’s best for the other person and this blog has helped me to see the disastrous fallout of crossing a line.
There is not always a negative fall out, you just have to go in with your eyes open.
No strings attached fun 😜😁🤩.
Gerberus, you can’t legislate against stupidity!
Einstein is quoted as saying; “ two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
DDII?? You could be on to a winner with a reality tv series there.
I have to hand it to you +Pat, you appear to have your homework done on this.
Every i dotted and every t crossed.
Fr Jerrys picture has been removed from the Diocesan website and he is now C/O Diocesan Office, Westbourne, Ennis
That was two weeks ago hopefully this week Ger Fitzgerald’s is the same.
Then quickly liaised and removed from the web site completely.
There is NO way Fintan Monahan can be transferred to the Archdioceses of Tuam.
I hope the victim has kept the Papal Nuncio up to date with the shocking treatment by Fintan Monahan and Ger Nash and stop their careers
Well hear now, a move to Tuam? The closest thing he has to getting to Tuam is listening to the Saw Doctors and weeping while he sings “And I wish I was on that N 17”.
This spring virtually guarantees 21 years of Monaghan in Killaloe, unless he resigns. This is all very sad for all parties.
Bishop probably advised to act slowly by solicitors.
A social progromme under funded (again) due to legal costs
Lady’s led up the garden path.
Priests who can only mate once.
Parishioners wondering who in the confessional has the bigger sins.
Broken dreams, dysfunction… How much of this traces back to the incompatability of celebacy with a psychologically healthy life?
How much of it traces back to sexual immaturity compounded by an overly-academic understanding of Catholic sexual morality? Was Hugh Connolly his lecturer for moral theology? He was certainly the head of the seminary council for Ger’s time as a senior in Maynooth. And what of the man who was his formator in both junior and senior house, the man who later realised he has no priestly vocation himself and left? Are there others in Ger’s class (or Maynooth era) who may need to be returned to seminary because their ministry is founded on poor formation?
I have said it many times before. A priest with poor formation will struggle. This is not an excuse for poor behaviour. It is a statement of fact. Any person in any walk of life will have a life-long reliance on their foundational training. If we want a goof priesthood, we need a good seminary. No excuses for bad behaviour there by seminarians. No excuse there for bad decision-making by priests who have no concept of parish ministry. Ger’s trainers were Dermot Farrell, Hugh Connolly, Enda Cunningham, Donal O’Neill, Paul Prior, Fanny Mullaney.
It’s a case of he said she said Pat with no proof either way. Ger probably has two phones and those texts weren’t sent from his official phone. Without proof Lugs can do nothing. As for Jerry he can’t function as a priest in Ireland again, he will be stamped for export only and begin a new ministry abroad.
Pat, is there any evidence apart from the text messages?
You are Wrong.
Bishop Monahan can do many things and the first should have been done weeks ago when Ger should have been suspended.
Bishop Monahan, Father Nash and the safeguarding Officer believe the complainant so what message does that send to Ger Fitzgerald that he is a compulsive liar.
What does his Brother priests think or Ger likely very low for letting the club down.
Bishop Monahan is responsible for the Dioceses of Killaloe and therefore he can suspend, remove or transfer Ger at any time or place him on leave till another parish becomes available.
Bishop Monahan is letting the victim down badly and furthermore the people of Cloughleigh alongside his brother Priests and should start to consider his own Leadership.
Ger should be ashamed of himself and I agree there will be two phones and as they are personal the bishop cannot demand them but the Bishop will know he is dealing with a liar.
Some of the comment yesterday could assist the Bishop whom I am sure want rid of Ger so the information posted yesterday can you confidentially email it to.
The bishop is already aware of the issues i posted yesterday. He too is a despicable man
Holy Goat the trainer you mention are all certain the best however I do ask you give Archbishop Farrell a chance a Dublin he has many plans and he is a worker.
Dermott Farrell has no baggage from Ossory and Denis Nulty is very shrewd so there God willing No problems in those two dioceses but Dermott Farrell has a mountain to climb and just hope he has the health and gets at least one Auxiliary.
Now that Tuam is vacant is suppose to be Kevin Doran or Brendan Leahy so they can amalgamate dioceses again no one knows a Dermott Farrell was a shocker as Brendan Leahy the money was on.
Is he a worker? His legacy in Maynooth was 60% loss rate of seminarians across the 7 years in formation. This was a target he set when they arrived in the welcoming prayers. He once stated his target in public. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.irishtimes.com/news/time-to-answer-the-call-1.488176%3fmode=amp
Having set the target we have 2 results.
1. 60% have been complaining for years about the integrity of the system.
2. 40% appear to eventually end up in scandal.
You say he is a worker. It is possible to be a “busy fool” and a worker.
I feel some empathy for these men. It’s hard coming to terms with sexuality in the background of Irish Catholicism. I don’t think their struggles condemn them but the arrogance that often characterises the attitude of clerics to laity certainly does. This arrogance often manifests itself in moments were clergy have not behaved as they should, rather then introspection, they rejoice and gloat among themselves in the canonical security they have. I wonder how many would still be in ministry if they were independent financially and practically, given that the “bond of communion” with the Bishop has very little influence in the thinking of the average priest.
+Pat I just looked at your Sunday Mass. Good to see you back. The courage and persistence you have always displayed in your vocation in spite of many unjust obstacles is something I find very consoling. Every good wish!
You certainly have to be congratulated for exposing these degenerates,they have to go. I can’t understand why their bishop dose not dismiss them when the evidence is there for all to see and they can’t use the excuse that the allegations might be false.
As a regular reader, it always seemed D&C was considered the dirtiest diocese in Ireland (DDII). However, with Bishop Monahan’s pictorial associations with Silverstream and Mt Melleray plus the two featured filth merchants, perhaps Killaloe is now the second dirtiest diocese in Ireland. Still, it is quite an achievement in such a short time as a bishop.
Nah D&C is like Sodom and Gomorrah.
Yes they have to go but problem is Ger Fitzgerald is saying it is all lies and not from his mobile phone.
Everyone knows he is a LIAR and his fellow clergy are disgusted.
Bishop Fintan is I hope trying his best but he will be advised by canon Lawyers but he has been far too slow of the mark.
Both Carey and Fitzgerald should be suspended.
One Bang Ger 😃
Bang Bang Gerry ( jcb man song)
That is very witty. It is, also, sadly a very accurate description of the state of the diocese.
Pat, you didn’t answer my question about the Scotties hacking into your blog. True or false?
The Diocese of Shagaloe 😄
Naked attraction !
In the future, Bp Pat, the blog should reward a bishop annually with, for example, “The Lomansey Award for the Dirtiest Diocese In Ireland” to recognise such an achievement.
An excellent idea. I will start it immediately.
The Mickey Lomasney Memorial Medal for the Dirtiest Diocese in Ireland.
Three awards – Gold. Silver. Bronze.
Nominations open NOW !
Gef gets Gold Medal of the year lol 🥇
Is Ger a Top or a Bot.
In my view, the inaugural gold medal should be jointly awarded to Bishop Crean and a certain bishop in Northern Ireland, because: a) the former has failed to do anything about what was a blatant sacrilegious act on an altar in his diocese, and, b) the latter bishop has been apprised in writing of the allegations concerning the alleged seminarian with the deceased priest of the Diocese of Cloyne, and both bishops have done f**k all.
Pat do you know the Identity of the seminarian allegedly involved in this sacrilege and are you likely to publish who it is?
I do know the name.
It is being dealt with in Rome just now.

The 29-year-old victim was tortured and then asphyxiated
A criminal court has sentenced Catholic priest Francisco Javier Bautista Ávalos to 27 years and six months in prison for the murder of Leonardo Avendaño, whose body was found in the Tlalpan borough of Mexico City on June 12, 2019.
The prison sentence will be served without options for early release. The court also ordered a fine of more than 400,000 pesos (US $19,850).
The former parish priest was found guilty of murder on Tuesday. The family had asked for the maximum sentence of 50 years.
Avendaño was reported missing on June 11, 2019, a day before his body was found in the back of a pickup truck in Tlalpan. The body showed signs of torture and asphyxiation. Bautista was detained a week later after having conducted the victim’s funeral service.
Video footage showed that he met with the 29-year-old deacon the night of his murder. Shortly after Avendaño’s death, his family said he was murdered to prevent him from going public with unspecified accusations against Bautista.
Initially, many parishioners supported Bautista. An online petition gathered more than 6,000 signatures in his support. Some early reports suggested that the murder may have been an accident in the course of a sex game. Josué Avendaño, the victim’s brother, emphatically rejected those claims.
“My brother was tortured. [His injuries] weren’t from a game or anything like that. It was something that was planned in advance. My brother was tortured, and then, after that, the cause [of death] was asphyxiation,” he said. He added that the body was badly bruised with a broken nose and some missing teeth.
After the sentencing, the victim’s brother said he was satisfied with outcome.
Can someone check on Gorgeous! 😱
11.17: For what reason? To satisfy your perverted fantasies! You moron.
Yes you always get some idiots willing to excuse anything these spongers do. Look at Seamus below lol 👇
Bishop Pat, this link is off topic but very relevant to the matter of DD II.
There are so many contenders in the running for what is likely to become a highly prestigious award in clerical/diocesan circles. Who knows, there might be an International DD award conferred in time to come. Will the “Fathers in the Hierarchy” take matters related to clergy seriously, please. We have more than enough clerical CaCa.
Revelations of sexual abuse inside the Catholic church shook Ireland to its core. Unreported Europe speaks to those who survived the paedophile priests and examines if the church has truly taken responsibility for the scandal.
“Our lives are not as normal as other people who haven’t been abused. The abuse has just changed our attitude to life, changed our attitude to people.”
“You know, you only have to do a few Google searches to see loads of examples of popes and bishops saying ‘We didn’t know’. Like the rest of society, we didn’t understand such things were possible. They did. They lied.”
Priests have left the priesthood because a relationship has blossomed with a woman. Widowers have joined the priesthood. This is black and white.
If a member of the clergy happens to fall a first time, possibly a second time or a third time as they strive to live a celebate life, there should be compassion and understanding.
Seamus let us pray that James Mackay Brentwood Dioceses that his new relationship with his Lady Blossoms.
There is a very big difference in a man after being widowed than a priest costing thousands to ordained goes and breaks his vows there has to be no return.
A leopard never changes its spots.
The people in Royal Docks parishes are disgusted with Janes MacKay and his incompetent Bishop Alan Williams SM
but the Mackay’s, Carey’s and now Fitzgeralds of this world do not resign they go into a denial mode which is shocking and still claim from the dioceses shocking they should claim Universal credit.
As I’ve said already, the best apology is changed behaviour. People should be given an opportunity. Jesus asked Peter 3 times did he love him? 3 atonements for denying that he knew Jesus.
Jim S. you like to appear as if the world is your oyster. How do you know what Fr McK’s parish thinks? Apart from gay gossip?
You are making this up as you go along. There is no evidence about Mackay’s life after leaving the Royal Docks. It is wholly wrong to try to damage his good reputation.
This is shocking news. Fr James was a rising star of the Divine Renovation Network. Indeed he and a parish worker spent a month on secondment to the first DRN parish in Nova Scotia, Canada, a few years ago.
A monsignor from the neighbouring East London parish of Canning Town has been named the new Royal Docks PP with another priest in residence.
I wonder if the star Music Minister Edwin Fawcett is still there.
Going back to clergy wealth discussed yesterday. Bishop Leo McCartie (Northampton) left behind £255,000. Not bad as his lived to be 100 and must have racked up care home fees. He left cash gifts of £126,000 to various individuals including £25,000 to his ‘devoted’ housekeeper who seems to have retired with him to the same nursing home. The rest of his estate (about £130,000) was left to the diocese of Northampton.
Not Jim S however Clergy in Brentwood have told me it is not gay gossip.
It is a female parishioner he is away with.
Alan William’s has given his time out all the Clergy are shocked.
So taste and try before you buy or come back son.
Alan Williams and Jim should take themselves of to Alan’s Religious order.
This is a big worry with pope Francis given dioceses to religious and the people of Tuam must be worried in case the get Brendan Coffey.
I am not making anything up.
Ask the clergy in Brentwood and Southwark and they say he is in a relationship with a lady which is strange it is usually guys.
Divine renovation is expensive and if James is an example of them heaven help us.
Alan Williams addressed the parish and just said James is talking time out.
However he is in Love with a Female.
5.54 have a dance with James
For us True Catholic doing this in front of the Tabernacle just shows what he really thinks a total disgrace
So because he posts a video of himself dancing on you tube, means he is in love with a female? There is no evidence of this relationship whatsoever, and I’m sure the tabloids would have made a story out of it if there was.
Clergy wealth a v interesting subject and how clever to investigate the probate off Bishop Leo McCarties Estate.
Wonder how many clergy die with over £1 million in their estate?
How sad that McArties imagination didn’t go beyond giving it to Northampton Diocese?
Would all the little old ladies who give money as Mass Stipends do so if they knew ‘Fader’ had almost 1/4 million in his bank account poor crature!!
How much do bishops earn?
Do they get a higher pension than a bog standard parish priest?
I think linking paying money for a sacrament is obscene and deeply offensive – both to God and everyday folk.
The first Reformation was all to do with money and purgatory maybe the second will be all about child abuse and the abuse of money.
Bottom line is – Catholic priests can’t safeguard children does anyone seriously think they can safeguard money?
Before you label me a begrudger, lapsed, a hater etc – be assured I’m neither but God in his mercy made me curious and while it may kill a cat it hasn’t killed me and I love how questions about clergy and cash rattles the clerical cage. Something to hide me thinks.
Is ‘devoted house keeper’ a euphemism?
They were the words used in his will. Even shacked up in the nursing home. Cosy I’d say.
Does Fr Jerry have an eye for the ladies or is he a normal priest, preferring men?
I understood that the place he was found “bashing the Bishop” was a regular gay cruising zone. 🙄
Normal priest according to Pat.
“Do you know where this hand has been Bishop?”
It’s amazing to think that the bishops of the future will be drawn from the ranks of these young priests.
I use “young” relatively. In the presbyterate the age profile is the same as the SDLP, where anyone aged under 70 is a young member.
He likes a handshake
Is causing scandal considered obsolete in the ‘new church’?
No however the problem is most Bishops do not know Canon Law and it is shocking.
Their arse is so up themselves it breaks their heart to think someone (Canon Lawyer) knows better than them.
He took her to a chip shop! I think I am more scandalised by that detail than anything else. Cheap skate!
That and the fact that he hopped out of bed right away.
While partial to a decent bag of chips myself, I hardly think it constitutions a decent date! At least get a decent take away and take it home.
😂 Nothing wrong with a decent bag of chips!
Or “chip” of the old block, for a decent oul bag, 👿
Seamus at 2.09: There are some of us who truly understand the gospel of mercy, forgiveness and the hope of new beginnings. It is the WAY OF JESUS…We forgive, not just once but 77 times!! What an amazing G8dcwe have..Stands in stark contrast to the lynch mobbers on this blog.
I would love to hear about your G8dcwe.
@4.41 – forgiving 77 times. Recollections of Fr. Drury at the 7th Station of the Cross. Glad to see his preaching endures.
Someone might find themselves on the wrong side of the law for the first time.
They might feel truly sorry for allowing their stupidity lead them to the point of breaking the law. If no-one has been hurt. Let there be compassion. Let there be understanding. Let there be just letting things be. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. May we all live in peace and enjoy a lovely evening!
Is mise le meas,
Ah! I get it you’re Fr Gerry.
Agreed. May we all live in peace.
Thank you Seamus. I just murdered my mother with a chain saw and feel very silly indeed as this is my first brush with the law. I hope the judge shares your approach and understands that I was feeling stressed.
“If no-one has been hurt. Let there be compassion.”
5:43 has no sense of proportion. Did he/she ever hear of the fundamental option?
Seamus I guess you are old school cover everything up.
Carey would not pass safeguarding he has a criminal conviction for SEXUAL misconduct.
if it was anything else another torch could be burned but they cannot have clergy with a Sexual Conviction.
We all believe not to throw a stone but to think this was a one off in a Gay cruising spot is laughable.
There are criminals among us who have made a mistake not to be repeated. A mistake without hurting anyone. Let there be compassion. Let there be forgiveness. Let there be understanding. Peace be with you and have a nice evening!
Of course someone has been hurt that is why thy called the Guards and they will never forget it.
Listen to the RTE radio show and people still traumatised 30 years later.
I think you are Father Gerry trying to seek compassion well you have compassion as a person however you are now not suitable for the priesthood.
@Seamus and 4:41
You both display an inadequate or even twisted understanding of God’s mercy. The Catholic tradition is very plain both that humans must act with regard to the whole circumstances of an event and also that forgiveness requires contrition, ideally perfect. It is not enough to say ‘be merciful to X’ unless you are sure that X is contrite, that any risks to others around his behaviour are prevented, that reparation has been made for the sin, that steps have been taken to ensure it doesn’t happen again and finally if it is a crime that any civil penalties are observed.
I am afraid that your attitude is exactly the attitude taken by the bishops about abusing priests and has led to incredible damage and scandal. A developed theology of mercy will take the other aspects above into account.
An action that is harmless and an action that is harmful are two different matters entirely.
An action that is harmless should not be treated like an action that is harmful. Let there be compassion. Let there be forgiveness. Let there be understanding.
Peace be with you and have a nice evening!
6.22 Here here
Thankfully, dear 6.22, the good Lord doesn’t take his cues from you.
@ 6:33 pm
Are you taking the proverbial piddle?
The definition of a mistake according to Merriam-Webster dictionary is- a wrong judgment : misunderstanding : a wrong action or statement proceeding from faulty judgment, inadequate knowledge, or inattention.
A crime is defined as- an ILLEGAL ACT for which someone can be punished by the Government especially : a gross violation of law: a grave offense especially against morality : criminal activity : something reprehensible, foolish, or disgraceful.
Sin can be defined as- an offense against religious or moral law : an action that is or is felt to be highly reprehensible : an often serious shortcoming : fault : transgression of the law of God : a vitiated state of human nature in which the self is estranged from God.
We are living in a democracy not a theocracy. The good Lord certainly doesn’t take His cues from 8:29pm. Maybe 8:29ers might feel more comfortable moving to the Vatican State.
6.22: You are so totally wrong. The ministry of a priest is not to condemn or judge in such a way that you make the person feel like rubbish, unworthy and useless. The ministry of a priest – in my humble understanding is to lead the penitent to deep remorse, sorrow and a realisation of the wrong or hurt or abuse committed. When the penitent fulfils has genuine, contrite heart, that surely is the moment to offer God’s mercy. There is a big difference, of course, when speaking about the crime of sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable people. And, sir, do not make the stupid mistake of comparing me or any other priest, to being like abusers or like church personnel who covered up abuse. I never was and am not a cover upperer!! That’s the lazy, lying narrative perpetuated on this blog. I think, sir, you need to reread the Gospels and truly discover the JESUS aporoach to sinners!! You won’t find Jesus crushing people into the ground with a relentless, merciless lynch mob mindset!! Vengeance is mine says the Lord…What I want is mercy…The Lord is kind and full of compassion, slow to anger, rich in mercy…REMEMBER these words? It’s my experience when dealing with sinners that the JESUS-GOD approach is best. That’s why there are many, many sinners and penitents who knock on the door of my kindness. Who am I, a priest, to bury hope and new beginnings (when possible) for any person? Seamus and I will not be deterred by mobs or haters!!!:
6.22: Pity about your impoverished moral and spiritual domain. I hope I never have the misfortune of your judgment. Look to thine own heart and conscience. God is bigger than you’ll ever imagine: There’s a wideness in God’s mercy, wider than the sea….Go figure out, hater of clerics!
@8;43 absolutely. However that would include a frank facing of the consequences and not going to court under the name of Mr Carrey hoping that it would stay out of the press and you could carry on.
It was a duty of Fr Carey to inform the school of the criminal charges he faced.
Seamus, of course someone got hurt. The poor woman that was so alarmed she got the guards. The trauma of it all. The public spot by the beach…. A known gay cruising spot. Please Seamus get a grip on the reality of it all please..
I actually think Seamus is taking the p*ss. Nobody could be that idiotic or naive and not be in care.
Gods mercy is not being called into question. Go, figure out the rest…duh!
An example was given on the radio of someone who did not show remorse, just shrugged their shoulders and drove off.
Someone who has shown remorse and dreaded a day court. A remorseful person will understandably dread the day in court.
Let there be compassion. Let there be forgiveness. Let there be understanding.
For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.
Is mise le meas,
Pat, a poster earlier enquired about gorgeous. Gorgeous is now ensconced as Chaplain in Loughlinstown Hospital. He resides in a parish house in Holy Trinity Parish, Donaghmede where the resident priest is a ‘kindred spirit’ – If you get my meaning! Nudge, nudge wink wink. I doubt that the new occupant of the Palace of Drumcondra will tolerate this for much longer. He will also be appalled at several other ‘anomalies’ in his diocese involving those of a certain bent……The new broom must soon go into action…
Thanks for the update as I understand Archbishop Farrell wants all the reports by end of July.
Archbishop Farrell is no fool and they will find this out by the Autumn if not before.
You can tell looking at Archbishop Farrell he is not in Dublin for the money as he needs a new wardrobe of clothes but will not spend money.
His normal is that old black cardigan in most pictures from his home not a palace as it needs a fortune spent on it.
Archbishop Farrell is at his happiest times when in parishes.
His big idea is a task force headed by Former rector of the Irish college Roma and the Adm of the ProCathedral and Dermo,s secretary Callan. Hopefully Farrell can see beyond these clerical friends of DM!
5:13 / 6:08 (same person)
Your comment is frightening in the extreme. A judge would see this kind of comment as harassment/stalking/intimidation/doxing. I would suggest he takes out a protection order from you.
I would hope that Bishop Pat would be willing to supply your IP address to the PSNI/Garda for such an investigation.
6.08 is a long way away from Dublin so hardly a stalker or harassment case.
Theo is point out something about Dublin Dioceses that needs investigated.
gorgeous should be standing on his own two feet and paying the Dioceses accom fees and bills.
Sadly it maybe low priority in Dermott list but he will address it or the Finance team will.
Oh 9.42pm shut it with your pseudo law. I’ll represent the poster pro bono in the highly unlikely event that the police take interest in this blog.
There are two possibilities.
1. He is bing housed because he is a cleric of the diocese which is not abnormal given his clerical status.
2. He is not being housed and people keep spreading this rumour as a way to bring his name up here. One would assume he is standing on his own two feet by definition of his working with the HSE.
My opinion, for what it is worth – I think people like you have an unhealthy obsession with him and others like him. I think MB done the right thing unlike Sean Jones; Stephen Wilson; Kevin Connolly et al. Farrell could surprise you and ordain him; I have no doubt that you will come on here cry about it.
Person A is sentenced to more than 3 years in prison, suspended. Person B is sentenced to 1 month in prison, suspended. Who has committed the bigger crime? Can Person A throw stones at Person B?
The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant;
21 Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me?(A) Up to seven times?”(B)
22 Jesus answered, “I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.[a](C)
23 “Therefore, the kingdom of heaven is like(D) a king who wanted to settle accounts(E) with his servants. 24 As he began the settlement, a man who owed him ten thousand bags of gold[b] was brought to him. 25 Since he was not able to pay,(F) the master ordered that he and his wife and his children and all that he had be sold(G) to repay the debt.
26 “At this the servant fell on his knees before him.(H) ‘Be patient with me,’ he begged, ‘and I will pay back everything.’ 27 The servant’s master took pity on him, canceled the debt and let him go.
28 “But when that servant went out, he found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred silver coins.[c] He grabbed him and began to choke him. ‘Pay back what you owe me!’ he demanded.
29 “His fellow servant fell to his knees and begged him, ‘Be patient with me, and I will pay it back.’
30 “But he refused. Instead, he went off and had the man thrown into prison until he could pay the debt. 31 When the other servants saw what had happened, they were outraged and went and told their master everything that had happened.
32 “Then the master called the servant in. ‘You wicked servant,’ he said, ‘I canceled all that debt of yours because you begged me to. 33 Shouldn’t you have had mercy on your fellow servant just as I had on you?’ 34 In anger his master handed him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed.
35 “This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother or sister from your heart.”(I)
Is mise le meas,
I forgive but safeguarding protects and thank God for that.
Seamus you are forgetting the crime it was of a sexual nature so with Safeguarding there is NO place for a Bishop to place him.
Parishioners find it repulsive in Ennis two clergy in a month and tbh so do the Clergy.
Bishop Pat, is priesthood considered a profession, with a professional code of conduct, fitness to practice procedures, professional competencies, etc ?
Strictly amateur, dear.
Are you Bishop Pat, duckie?
You having a laugh it is suppose to be very strict however it seems full of weak and compromised Bishops.
I bet Bishop Pat Buckley would kick them out as well if he is honest.
Ah of that were the case most would have been dismissed for professional misconduct…
Pat I often disagree with your very liberal moderation for comments but on days like today I can see it clearly has benefits.
The main benefit towards the bottom of the comments is to demonstrate that the church has learned nothing from the sexual scandal of the past decades and are still quite happy to let a sex offender get away scot free and say that this is something to do with God! Holy shit you couldn’t make this up.
I predict that in years to come when RC clergy are compulsorily tagged by law these clowns will still be screaming mercy.
Just to be clear- if a teacher, doctor nurse or solicitor had committed this crime they would definitely be looking at a fitness to practice. If they failed to declare it they would be looking at being struck off for sure.
My favourite gospel passage is the one where Jesus says, plough your own furrow and let everyone else get on with what they feel like doing and justify it with some pseudo-spiritual rubbish.
Oh that’s right, he didn’t.

I agree. It seems to me the church has learned nothing from the ongoing sex scandals now
in the public domain over the last 35 years. Gods mercy, stone throwing, forgiveness or
a second chance-new beginnings, are not the issues.
Pat I’ve seen many a willy in Maynooth Seminary. Most were well shaved and Bums were waxed sure just ask Michael Byrne and Kevin Connolly who used to take Lads to the waxing male salon beside te Boiler hse sauna in Temple Bar.
Our Kevin Connolly just detests Kevin Heery 🏳️🌈💋

Hi Stephen how are you these days.
