An Armagh priest, who I trust completely, told me that the now Fr Ryan Mc Aleer was sexually assaulted by another Armagh priest when he was a seminarian.
This information is known to several Armagh priests and at least one other diocesan priest.
My priest informant says that Ryan was very distressed after the attack.
It’s more than possible, in my mind, that this assault may have had a long lasting affect on Ryan and may partly explain his difficulties?
