ONE OF AMY’S RECENT VERY SUCCESSFUL ORDINATIONS 😀
From IRISH CENTRAL
A Catholic priest in Armagh has appeared in court accused of voyeurism after he allegedly spied on a woman for sexual thrills.
Fr. Aidan Patrick McCann, 35, with an address at the parochial house on Maddens Row in Keady, County Armagh, appeared at the Craigavon Magistrates Court via video link from his solicitor’s office on Friday and confirmed that he understood the single charge that had been brought against him.
Fr. McCann is accused of voyeurism following an incident on March 28 after he allegedly observed a female “doing a private act knowing that the other person did not consent to being observed” for his own sexual gratification.
The Sunday World reports that the incident took place at a changing room at the Rushmere Shopping Centre, which is across the road from the Craigavon Magistrates Court.
Giving evidence to the court, Constable Mosgrove of the PSNI said she believed she could connect Fr. McCann to the offense.
Meanwhile, a prosecuting lawyer suggested that the case be adjourned “for some time” because the full case file was not due to be received until June 16.
District Judge Bernie Kelly agreed to put the case back until June 24.
Defence Solicitor Harry McCourt confirmed that he did not have any questions in relation to his client being charged with the offense.
AMY’S VERY SUCCESSFUL MASTER OF CEREMONIES
A well-known Catholic priest in Ireland — who was vocally homophobic in his sermons — has been outed for having his own secret Grindr profile.
35-year-old Rory Coyle was a priest in Armagh, a town in Northern Ireland — until it was discovered that he’d been keeping a secret Grindr account, chock full of illicit selfies.
Coyle was outed when an unnamed source contacted the local Catholic newspaper to confess he’d sexted with the holy man on Grindr on several occasions.
In an email to the whistle-blower blog Thinking Catholicism, the source, who is over the age of 18, explains:
[Coyle] spoke to me on Grindr a few times and kept wanting to come to my mum’s house for sex with me while she was at work. He sent me lots of naked pics of himself too. When I realized who he was I sent them to a journalist along with the screenshots of his sex chat.”
Not long after that, the source says, Coyle’s Grindr account was deleted and his Facebook page deactivated.
“I assume the journalist contacted the diocese,” the source continues.
In the email, he goes on to call Coyle a “dirty bastard” and a “total pervert” who admitted via text to participating orgies, going to gay beaches, and renting rooms by the hour for “sex meets.”
“He’s just a hypocrite. Denouncing gay people from the pulpit and then shagging guys when no one is looking.”
Days after the story broke, Coyle was quietly removed from his clerical duties. His photo was also briefly removed from the Armagh Parish’s official website.
No explanation was given.
AMY’S VERY SUCCESSFUL LOURDES PILGRIMAGE DIRECTOR
Father Mc Camley eas PP of Keady when he was caught sending naked images of himself at night to young men.
Amy removed him from Keady and sent him on leave.
Amy has now sneaked him into Dungannon to help out
Interestingly, both MC CAMLEY and MC CANN were in KEADY when their scandals broke out.
ANY’S VERY SUCCESSFUL PRIMARY SCHOOL RELIGIOUS ADVISOR.
Ryan McAleer, up until recently, lived in the parochial house in Dungannon in Co. Tyrone, was Amy Martin’s primary school adviser and was the VF – the vicar forane of the Dungannon clergy area.
Now, he has disappeared and is listed as gone to do post graduate studies – whatever and wherever that is?
A young Tyrone man has made serious allegations against Ryan to both the PSNI and Amy.
To date, no charges have been brought.
ANOTHER OF AMY’S FINEST PP’s
As the parents and children of the sleepy northern village of Pomeroy gather today for this year’s First Holy Communion ceremony, they will be doing so without local priest Fr Martin McVeigh.
A pillar of the community who was highly respected in Tyrone GAA circles, Fr McVeigh has been on “sabbatical leave” after becoming embroiled in controversy after inadvertently showing gay pornographic slides to a group of parents.
Fr McVeigh denies the images were his and the PSNI says he has no case to answer.
But the controversy has refused to go away — with a bizarre series of subsequent events further adding to the intrigue.
These include the theft of a laptop and the circulation of rumours that Fr McVeigh was “set up” by persons
It all started on the night of March 26, when Fr McVeigh was using a laptop projector to give a presentation to 30 parents and one eight-year-old child on the forthcoming First Confession ceremony for pupils from St Mary’s Gaelscoil in the village.
In the course of his talk he managed to project 16 explicit images of naked men on to a large screen, much to the mortification of the parents present.
At first, Fr McVeigh continued his presentation oblivious to the graphic images that had flashed up in front of the unsuspecting audience.
Then by his own account he began shaking when he realised what had appeared on screen.
According to outraged parents, the priest, who has had a long and distinguished career, then whipped the memory stick from the laptop computer and “bolted” from the room without explanation.
