GER FITZGERALDS UNEXPLAINED € 17,700 IS GROWING BY THE DAY.

GER IS A BIG TRUMP FAN 😞


Terry was Ger’s best friend/confidante and Terry has connections to other clerics in the RCC including Richard Purcell.

Terry alleges that a sum of money greater than 17k was given to Ger Fitzgerald by a certain private wealthy benefactor.

The money was supposed to be used for a specific purpose which Terry has not revealed.

Karen found the bank slip belonging to Fr Ger in March of this year and immediately informed Bishop Fintan and Cleo. The date on the bank slip was July 16, 2021, and showed a balance of c. 17,700 euros.

Terry has checked his records and he claims the the 17k in Ger’s account corresponds to the balance of the original amount that was given to Ger by a private benefactor which implies that the difference was spent.

Was it spent on what it was intended for?

We do not know.

Terry claims that if Ger was using the money for his own personal use then that is fraud.

Apparently the private benefactor does not wish to be identified as he/she does not want anyone hounding him/her for money.

After Cleo Yates and Bishop Fintan were told about the bank slip and questioned Ger, he claimed it was savings (see email from Cleo).

CLEO’S EMAIL TO KAREN

This is a lie. Fintan came to Sixmilebridge to speak with Terry about the matter. Terry did not reveal the benefactor’s name to Fintan.


Someone wrote a cryptic msg to Fr Todd on yesterdays blog mentioning a benefactor and “Lake View”.

Is Lake View a property that Ger perhaps was looking to purchase? Ger talked to me on a few occasions about his desire to purchase his own house/cottage. He had his eye on one cottage in Castleconnell which he took me and Terry to see.

.
Unanswered questions:


Has the Gardai questioned Ger about the money in his account?


Did Ger reveal the benefactor’s name to the guards?


Why did Ger lie to Cleo and Fintan and tell them that the 17k was savings?

This happened before the Bishop met with Terry.


Has the money been returned to the anonymous benefactor?


Does Fintan know who the benefactor is?


Did Ger use the money for his own personal use?


Where are the receipts for the benefactor’s money that was spent before the discovery of the 17k still left in Fitzgerald’s account?

PAT SAYS

So, the € 17,700 was part of the money an anonymous benefactor gave to Ger to complete a project?

What project?

If € 17 700 was what was left over after the mystery project was completed, how much was the original sum – € 35,000; € 50,000 or more?

And of the project was completed why was the € 17,700, plus receipts not returned to the benefactor?

Did the benefactor tell Ger – “Keep the change”?

In any event we are talking here about substantial five figure sums and openness and clarity are required

FINTAN AT THE GALWAY RACES

I Hope he wasn’t betting € 17,700 on that old nag FATHER GER 😀

I usually do not comment directly to you, as I have not been invited to minister to you, but please permit me to say the following. Occasionally in ministry parishioners and clergy become too close and lines get blurred. A lot of hurt happens on both sides. I wish you well but while seeking justice with regards to breach of professional boundaries, please remember to work internally on healing as well as externally. You might already be doing so, and if you are – keep going. The church offers little justice so self-healingnis invaluable. May the Lord Bless you from Zion, God who made heaven and Earth, may he keep you from all evil as you journey this world, and may the angels protect you.

Pat at 11:22 It’s not a court but the faithful helpfully give away when they’re really rattled by slipping into legal or court language.

Pat at 1:46 That wasn’t what I was getting at; of course you’re right. On days when the sex has been consensual and this hasn’t been disputed or complicated in any way, they still use court language about it.

“Without Prejudice”
Dear Bishop Buckley
We have been requested to confirm that we are acting on behalf of other vulnerable parishioners in Killaloe Diocese. These matters are not of a romantic or sexual nature and a number of these complaints constitute existing and extremely serious legal, financial and property rights breaches against vulnerable persons both living and deceased.
We have been asked to confirm that should you and the lady in Sixmilebridge in due course and when appropriate for the purposes of public interviews and court appearances, require documentary evidence to support your pursuit of supplementary evidence of proof of other wrong doing currently that is also being vigorously and proactively defended by management and members of the Diocese of Killaloe, arrangements can be made via their representatives in due course as appropriate and in strict consultation with qualified parties including you, Bishop Buckley, whom they inform us is to be highly commended for your support to date that is greatly appreciated by all concerned as the response and reactions of the Roman Catholic representatives is noted by all involved to be most concerning on various levels.
We are informed that you did in writing request assistance from Bishop Fintan Monahan earlier this year in one of these matters but he declined to implement a finalisation of the matter and in the meantime this has continued to negatively and adversely affect the life of a vulnerable young person whose life remains in limbo whilst not facilitated by the complete reversal of a most grevious wrong doing by appointed and serving lay members and patrons of the Diocese of Killaloe and property trust etc. and that they are well within their financial ability to execute reversal of acquisition on foot of a false instrument.
The purpose of this post is to counteract misinformation being circulated by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe and it clerical and lay members and so provide public clarity from the viewpoint of the wronged parties and in light of the specific vulnerabilities of the parties concerned.
No further engagement will be welcomed nor answered from miscellaneous “speculators or self interested supporters of these wrong doings on this blog or elsewhere.
Qualified engagement only with authorised parties including Bishop Pat Buckley will take place privately and permission will be provided to report on conclusions when appropriate.
Relevant parties should take note that Documents will be released in strict consultation with appropriately qualified and relevant parties to these various matters and at the appropriate juncture.

In the atmosphere of this blog and considering your own experiences, it’s admirable when you express gratitude. My other point is that many commenters can do what you have done – recognise that there are good, human, decent priests – but Pats narratives re: priests are ones which rarely, if ever, acknowledge their presence. He has a mental, emotional and spiritual block against the very mention of the presbyters he once knew. . Pat may indeed be a good priest to many non clerics like you and carry out good works of charity but primarily Pat will smash any priest he can. I also admire the many priests I know who are wonderfully dedicated to their ministry, the many who are constantly caring for the sick and homebound and those I know who have a special love for the homeless, beyond giving money and those in need of any kind. I look to such men and to many religious sisters for inspiration.

One of them thanked me personally for making them face the truth.

Others have thanked me through third parties.

Highlighting priestly wrongdoing and supporting their victims is only seen as “smashing” by clerics who are wrongdoers themselves and want to stop the blog before their appearances on here materialise.

I am a sinner. I am imperfect. But I seek the truth.

I bet that hurt the diocese having to acknowledge your property rights in the High Court. I am surprised after that expensive lesson, the diocese didn’t make each priest sign a waiver of occupation rights to protect their legal interest in property – they would just need to ensure that that priest took independent legal advice before signing it. ” I Agree to leave the Property immediately and give up possession of the Property to the Diocese if it notifies me that it wishes to exercise its right to possession.”

But you conveniently forget about the mansion you were given for free!! Frequently you slam this man and Bishop Cullunane into the ground. Your blog is s forum for the most vicious incitement to hatred of priests. You allow untruths, innuendo, nasty verbiage and poisonous rhetoric against practically all clerics.

Ironically poor management of church property came up. The poorest management of property is not turning out people you don’t want there. 20 years is ridiculous: currently in UK law if you’ve squatted without challenge for ten years you can start the legal process to get the land registered in your name.

When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment.” (…)’
