SILVERSTREAM FIXER COFFEY REFUSES RETREAT AT GAY MONASTERY TO GER FITZGERALD’S SECOND VICTIM!

As part of Killaloe’s healing efforts for Carole, Ger Fitzgerald’s second victim, Fintan Mobahan promised her a retreat in Glenstal.

LETTER FROM FINTAN MONAHAN’S CLEO.

Recently, Carole made a retreat booking at Glenstal to take Fintan up on his offer.

Carole started getting REFUSAL emails:

FIRST REFUSAL EMAIL 8 PM TUESDAY 14TH

SECOND REFUSAL EMAIL WEDNESDAY 15TH 9 AM

Carole simply mentioned on the Blog that she was going to Glenstal.

CAROLE’S REPLY TO COFFEY

Now COFFEY & CO are refusing her admission to her arranged retreat!

Of course, Coffey is a former Killaloe priest – but not the one barebacked by Purcell in Roscrea monastery kitchen.

Coffey supports Kirby

Purcell supports Coffey.

Phonsie supports Purcell.

Those in the MAGIC CIRCLE are protected. Those outside it are rejected and hounded.

I love it! Carole if you have any sense stay well clear of Glenstal. You are missing nothing. A bunch of ponces processing around the place, chanting and full of their own importance. A bunch of pampered overgrown, man children with too much time on their hands. I have ‘retreated’ there many times, the guesthouse is nice. Interesting experiences..loads of pent up anger and frustrated sexuality. They loathe abbot Joe with a passion. A thoroughly unhealthy place.

I think that image is a true reflection of what “those” self-centered bishops have done, by destroying the lives of many people. Those bishops have bullied people left, right and center either because of who they are or merely because they were a victim in the hands of the Church.

Perhaps Carole’s Bishop in Killaloe can speak to Glenstal on her behalf or book her into a retreat at another venue. It seems unreasonable & unnecessarily cruel to hurt Carole even more after her negative experience with his priests. What on earth are they thinking in Glenstal & Killaloe. Nasty and petty.

12:01 Personally I think that Bishop Fintan doesn’t give a hoot about the retreat he promised me and most likely was involved in Glenstal’s decision to ban me. Will I be banned from Ennis Cathedral as well? They are planning to have a rosary marathon there soon. Why don’t they just issue an edict with a picture of me saying that I am persona non grata in all RCC churches and buildings throughout Ireland? Do they want my reg number to add to the edict? Ger once wrote in a msg that Yvonne needed to go to a lunatic asylum. Sure, make those of us who speak out about RCC corruption look like nutters…and they wonder why we speak out on Pat’s blog.

Carole, you were safer not going to Glenstal on your own anyway & in future be more mindful for your own well-being and forget about receiving any shred of humanity from anything or anyone Killaloe connected because they’ve yet again confirmed they have none. Pure evil. Pax

Very uncharitable thing for the monastery to do. Please write to the Papal Nuncio and ask him to forward this to the Holy See – the nuncio will probably not reply but the office/nunciature will forward it. The Holy Father has spoken about the need for the clerical church to get its act together with all victims. Did the Abbot write it or the Guestmaster?

11:45 The facts: I sent Glenstal guesthouse an email asking to stay and citied the fact that Bishop Fintan would pick up the tab for my visit. After I didn’t hear back from them for quite a few days, I suspected that they were blackballing me. I then sent them an email from a different email account I have under my Christian name which appears on my passport. They did respond to that saying there was availability and so I asked them to please book me in. Then they sent another email to ask me in what name I wanted the booking “xxxxx” or “xxxxxxxxx” so at that point I realised they understood full well that I had sent both mails. I have nothing to hide so I told them to put my booking under my Christian name and gave them Bishop Buckley’s name & telephone number as they had requested details for an emergency contact. It was at that point that they cancelled my booking. I will not apologise for sending an email from a different account. They are playing durty and we all know full well that they cancelled my booking because of my association with Pat who is persona non grata at Glenstal. Discrimination at its finest. Be assured that I will visit you all again, Glenstal, when you least expect it. I have committed no crime. I’d love to see Glenstal ring the guards and have me thrown out of Mass…No Fear.

People post on social media on a variety of topics including making a retreat. While Glenstal has a duty of care to residents, I’m wondering what are the limits or boundaries of their duty of care? Does it extend to making determinations of who can and cannot make a retreat on the basis of social media posts? While some adults making a retreat may be vulnerable, they are adults, private citizens. Adults can choose to communicate or not communicate with each other. It seems to me there is a clear insinuation retreatants will be at risk. The email is vindictively patronizing even if couched in the rhetoric of care. Can I direct you to;

I would agree with you Seamus – Carol did herself no favour by letting everyone know on this blog that she was going on a retreat to Glenstal, paid for by the bishop of killaloe. I dont think she should have mentioned where and when she was going as any private retreat in my view would be private and not meant to be put on public display. She also mentioned here on 4th June that she wouldn’t be able to take much more than two/three nights and also, eventhough she knew silence is the norm during meal times while on retreat, she still wanted to be able to read Pat’s blog on her phone. I think that finished Carol going anywhere near Glenstal.

My best friend was abused too, now deceased after blowing his head off. I’m an adult now, yet feel like a misguided child., I do not go to the guards as strongly advised for a number of years. My family do not know. My guilt is that my abuser is still alive. My family do not question why I drink so much because on the outside, I’m always smiling and do not have financial problems. I have more degrees from both sides of the Atlantic than I care to look at. I have a gun, and each day despite doctors, counsellors, medication and alcohol, every single day for me is a real struggle. They, ‘Carole’, are real problems.

6:08 No one deserves to be abused and you have my sympathy. I have been abused both physically and verbally for over 20 yrs in first marriage. I was falsely arrested for a crime I didn’t commit by the ex husband’s family and had to spend a few nights in jail. I was fully exonerated but it did not erase the trauma. Excuse me for saying this but you seem to be very judgmental towards me. I do have empathy for other people’s pain, especially in relation to Yvonne who has lost two homes because of what happened with Ger, received death threats from Ger supporters and never received an apology from Fintan like some people have claimed. Yvonne and I have will NEVER allow Ger Fitzgerald to hurt another woman while he is still employed by the RCC, so you see, it’s not all about me. What person in their right mind would want the abuse that we have endured from this blog in order to get attention? You are so wrong about me. I am putting myself under public scrutiny and getting abuse hurled at me from all directions on the blog but it doesn’t matter in the long run because I know that by exposing Fitzgerald’s misdeeds, it will most likely prevent him from doing it again under the RCC umbrella. The financial scandal involving the 17k that Fitz had in his account still remains an issue. Ger knows that Larry holds the key to where the money came from and if necessary will be obliged to give sworn testimony. I am also taking a stand on this blog against RCC corruption and unfair treatment of victims by the clergy in order to create awareness so I would appreciate it if you would stop saying that I care only about myself.

the initiative for a humane, kinder and conciliatory way of sorting out the issues lies with
the Ordinary in Killaloe. The bishop has a duty to the all the Faithful in his diocese.

The Oul Gossip’s on again speaking her usual gibberish she is indeed known as Mother Teresa and we all know what she was really like. As for her being A Sexual that’s not from choice. If your interested in her criminal conviction just google John McCubbin it’s all in the public domain. If you read between the lines you’ll see why she says she’s she’s A Sexual nobody would go near her. That’s why she was banned from Asda for putting the trolley boy’s in a state of fear and alarm. 😏😏😏

Bishop Buckley, I hope readers of your blog are gaining a greater insight and deeper appreciation of the difficulties survivors of Institutional Catholic Church abuse have to contend with when they come forward to Church authorities to report their abuse. The public relations line from Church representatives is ‘victims must be our first priority’. This is not the case from my experience. Keep up the great work.

I am a survivor of Catholic Church abuse. I have experienced suicidal ideation as a consequence. I am going to be very circumspect as I intend initiating legal proceedings. I spent thousands of euros on therapy. I also have several graduate and postgraduate degrees. I can honestly easily empathise with you. Believe me, it was not my intention to cause you or anyone else offence. Each of us has our unique story to tell. Carole’s story, is unique to Carole. My story has been of lifetime. However, Carole’s story, on a macro level, highlights particular dynamics illustrative of Catholic Church hierarchical approach to abuse survivors who come forward which includes: the preferential option for the priest; retraumatising; minimising: denial: gaslighting; appeasement; silencing; shaming; blaming; etc. A unique dynamic or consequence of clerical abuse is spiritual abuse, which has been described as a form of ‘soul murder’. In other words, a person’s relationship with the Divine can be irreparably damaged. I can greatly empathise with survivors of abuse, believe me. However, speaking as a committed Christian, clerical abuse has particular dynamics which can easily lead a person to hate God. Of course, God is not responsible for clerical abuse. Best wishes. Pax.

7:23 I am sorry to read about your abuse but it’s hardly a competition – no abuse is acceptable- the fact remains in Caroles case that Fr Ger Fitzgerald seems to have initiated contact with her under false pretences & using his position in the Priesthood to gain her trust & the other women. A priest or anyone with any shred of integrity would not have exploited her personal vulnerability for their own benefit, it’s sad to read that he spoke so disrespectfully to Carole mentioning homes for bewildered woman / this proves he was fully aware of what he was doing, he’s no better than those online romance tricksters you read about in the magazines at the hairdressers. My hairdresser & her girls now read this blog – they also cut men’s hair & my neighbours dad was in last week & he figured if he had any hair left on top of his head, it’d have stood on end after reading it. Shocking that church supporters come on here to give victims such a hard time. They are a disgrace & to be avoided. I hope for her own safety & peace of mind that Carole stops going near any places connected with Killaloe, her details have clearly been circulated amongst them, they seem extremely defensive and spiteful in Parishes in Killaloe. It’s all a very sad and nasty business.

I wish you well Carole but you love drama.

Like

9:50 The predator priest declared his “love” for me in Galway and in a conversation with Larry also known as Terry. Ger was too smart to write anything like that in a message seeing as he had already been caught out because of his sexting to Yvonne. The closest he came to writing it was when he wrote to me that he “lived” me to bits. Typo or deliberate spelling error? He used Yvonne for sex and then discarded her. He used me as well for certain things and was seeing other women at the same time in order to meet the rest of his needs…Ask Yvonne, she’ll tell you the same and more. All for his own self gratification. Terry told me outright that Ger was using me but I did to want to believe it because I genuinely thought that Ger wasn’t capable of such a thing. Stupid me. Ask your friend why he kept coming over to my house to see me until January 2022? He has told so many lies that he can’t keep track of them anymore…how many other women was he seeing when he was with Yvonne? She saw messages from other women when she was with him. How many complained about Ger to Fintan? We will never know because it is all locked up in his big, fat file in Ennis.

Fr Ger Fitzgerald was a priest in PASTORAL ministry when he first initiated contact with me on social media in 2020. Following his introduction on Facebook, he visited my home, performed the Sacrament of Baptism on my children, led a memorial service for my father (broadcast on Facebook), and blessed my home with holy water. During the same period of time that Fr Fitzgerald was providing pastoral care to myself and my family, he began a friendship with me and organised outings with me. I will never forget the time he took me to Cullane House and brought a picnic lunch for us. We ended up getting lost in the woods near the old chapel and I actually started feeling scared that this man-priest wearing a collar had deliberately taken me to the woods because he wanted to do something bad to me…
There was now a dual relationship & emotional attachment formed. I trusted the priest and he abused my trust and he abused his power. Some of you think that I wasn’t subjected to abuse. Then I suggest that you read these passages and the rest of the guidelines from “Caring Safely For Others – Pastoral Standards & Safe Conduct in Ministry”:
“Abuse of this trust by clergy is sometimes referred to as ‘clericalism’. Clericalism is expressed in actions, words and attitudes which betray and abuse the trust placed in us as clergy; it is inattention to the dynamics of power, or equally abuse of the dynamics of power, within the Church. Cf. Letter to the People of God, Pope Francis, 20th August 2018: “To say ‘no’ to abuse is to say an emphatic ‘no’ to all forms of clericalism.”
In therapeutic settings (e.g. counselling, medicine, etc.), the professional boundaries make clear that the nature of the relationship between the professional and client is not friendship. The boundaries between
clergy and those to whom they minister though are not as clear as exist for those working in professional therapeutic roles. Nevertheless, experience within the Church has shown that dual relationships which combine spiritual or pastoral care and close friendship can increase the risk of actual or perceived abuse of power. In our pastoral ministry therefore, we must bear full responsibility for establishing and maintaining appropriate boundaries in the development of our relationships with those for whom we are called to serve, particularly with children and adults at risk.” https://www.cbcew.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/sites/3/2021/04/Caring-Safely-For-Others.pdf

11.57 You have given us the information on this blog, I am not drawing conclusions. I’m being factual. You knew GF was a priest when you started the relationship, then GF ended it and ghosted you. You never told us really why or what happened with the break up. You were quiet vague on the blog regarding this. Anyway, he certainly took your charity and is a very unsavory fella but we had all this information because of YD but please stop with the drama!

2:15 I am confused. If you think it’s “drama” then why are you saying that I was being “vague” regarding the end of our relationship. Saying I was being vague indicates to me that you are looking for further details. Give it up. If you really want more details, why don’t you check on Facebook? There’s a lady blogger outside Ireland who publishes news about RCC corruption. GF is mentioned on her page quite a few times. So are the Glenstal monks. Won’t be long now…

Yes Carole you are vague about details of your story. You have let yourself open to scrutiny but yet you can’t handle telling us full story. That’s all I’m saying.

I have no intention in looking at Facebook, I read this blog and admire Bishop Pat and his work.

There is much corruption still to uncover, and I am not talking solely about GF. I will help Pat in my own way to expose the RCC until my last dying breath. It’s my thank you present to GF, the Diocese of Killaloe and Glenstal for the way they have treated me.

Yes Pat it is hurt. The church and priests like GF have hurt many people, this hurt needs healing and time.

6:02 Go back to the blog of April 4th and read the comments. I put up with a lot of abuse and anonymous comments from people on the blog who don’t want me to speak out about the priest’s durty deeds. A great number of vitriolic comments are binned by Pat but I do know about some of them. When I first came on the blog, I was polite. It’s gotten to the point where people are sometimes down right vicious with me now so I have to fight fire with fire. Myself (and Yvonne) will both fight back against anyone who attacks us because we are telling the truth and have nothing to hide. If you don’t like my methods, that’s fine. I am not looking for approval on the blog. The game rules have changed. It is now tit for tat. As Y. says, Ger was taking the piss out of everyone and he is still at it i.e. anonymous comments from him and his friends on the blog. He messed with the wrong women. Yvonne and I are both strong and we will keep standing no matter what Ger and his minions or anyone else for that matter throws at us.

Carole, your tone is wrong, defensive and angry. Can you not see that if you were strong you wouldn’t need such a tone? Strong women are able to take the hits without becoming vindictive. They have composure, poise and confidence. You have to heal from this hurt before you’re ready to move on.
