MY REPLY TO BISHOP KELLY
21 st September 2021
Dear Bishop Brendan,
I wish to thank you for the courtesy of a reply and for the reassuring content.
The lady is in the USA and her time zone is 8 hours behind ours.
I have spoken to her at length and am impressed by her honesty and her very obvious desire, not for revenge, but for the protection of other women / persons and indeed to see Father Xxxxx getting the help she is convinced he needs.
I will speak to her urgently and urge her to work with your safeguarding officer.
I an aware of how “young” you are and I hope you soon get the opportunity to have a less stressful life.
GAY / SATANIC GROUP RESEARCHER GIVES INFORMATION TO DENIS NULTY’S SAFEGUARDING OFFICER.
**** THIS MATTER INVOLVES A SERVING PRIEST OF K & L
Further to a correspondence from Bishop Pat Buckley I would like to confirm a report of abuse I received during a phone conversation with an ex cleric.
At the time I was investigating a group in Kildare organising Satanic type events amongst other things which led me to talk to this individual. Much of this material was reported to Gardai between 2016 and 2017.
The individual who has stated a link to the Fr Lomasney incident in Cork and similar incidents in Dublin has told me of his encounter in the Church in Nurney/Kildangan around 19XX when the alleged victim was 15. He described the incident as a sexual assault and has gone on to further discuss the current location of this priest as well as other personal details.
This gentleman, known as XX, describes himself as an ex cleric, and has up to recently shown pictures of other priests in compromising positions on his profile page on a gay dating site.
The gentleman’s (XX or XXXX) phone number is 087 XXXXXXX. He made the allegation against Fr XXXXXXXX and I reported this to Gardai in 2017. I have felt I needed to pass this on for the sake of Fr XXXXXXX who may be totally innocent in all this and of course any victims of abuse which may be out there related to this case.
Please confirm receipt of this email and perhaps I can make an official statement if I feel this matter can be resolved.
