SILVERSTREAM OWNED BY THE DIOCESE OF MEATH – BUT KIRBY GAVE NUNS € 600,000.

My brother bishop, Tom,

My blog last Sunday about the purchase of Mullingar-based property, 4 Ardmore Hills was one of my most popular in recent times. Some of my loyal readers remain hopeful that you will (because you are a Cork-born man with a generous spirit) provide updated pictures of the interior and the tasteful improvements (possibly) carried out by St. Finian’s Diocesan Trust, ie, the Trust that is registered at the Diocesan Office, Dublin Road, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath.

Encouraged by my readership, I decided to ascertain the ownership of Silverstream Priory. And, I was greatly assisted by the efforts of a solicitor who is sympathetic to my ministry.

One of your priests erroneously told me that the monastic property was owned by the Silverstream-based monks. But, another one of your priests got in contact (in light of my Ardmore Hills blog) and told me that the monastery is owned by St. Finian’s Trust. And, this is indeed the case.

As we know, St. Finian’s Trust, has as its “primary object is to act as permanent trustee for the property and investments of every kind, owned by, held in trust for, or used in connection with the Roman Catholic Church in the Diocese of Meath”.

The Folio Number for Silverstream Priory, Silverstream, Stamullen, Co. Meath, K32 T189 is: MH75387F. It is a freehold title that comprised of 6.32 hectares. I will post a copy of this e-mail and the Folio entry on my blog.

Once, I had confirmed the ownership of the Silverstream lands, I was intrigued; so, I made some phone calls. I have learned that the founding monks of Silverstream Priory “purchased” the property from the Visitation Sisters for the sum of €600,000. Is this true?

At that time, why did Dom Mark Kirby acquiesce to the purchase of the property by St. Finian’s Trust? Because there is no burden on the title to the benefit of the community at Silverstream, the monastic community are in effect “guests” of the Trust?

I have it on good authority that there is no commercial agreement/lease arrangement between the monks of Silverstream Priory and the Trust and/or the Diocese of Meath. Is this true?

At the time, when the monks arrived in Ireland from the Diocese of Tulsa: did Dom Mark Kirby have the advice of a solicitor with an established background in conveyancing law?

It is legitimate to ask: did the Diocese of Meath/St. Finian’s Trust take advantage of naïve Americans by taking their money to purchase a property that is ultimately to the benefit of the diocese of which you are the Ordinary?

I presume you are familiar with the allegations made by one of the founders of Silverstream Priory, Dom Benedict Andersen. Have you read this article in the Pillar?

https://www.pillarcatholic.com/p/monk-alleges-abuse-and-retaliation

You would accept that Silverstream Priory is mired in scandal? If so, why have you not commenced the process to suppress the Priory?

If you have not done so — do you plan to petition the Holy See to issue a Decree of suppression? I am told because the community is of Diocesan Right; it is more straightforward because it is not of Pontifical Right. There would be no messy legal battles concerning the property, (which I am told is ideal for residential development), because the grounds of the Priory are owned by St. Finian’s Trust.

Now that there is a new religious superior of the community, Fr. Basil MacCabe, will the two co-founders of Silverstream, Dom Mark Kirby and Dom Benedict Andersen be returning to Stamullen any time soon?

With an assurance of heart-felt prayers, and requesting an occasional remembrance in yours; I remain devotedly yours in Christ.

Thanks! It also feels like McCarrick and again it FEELS like the problems at Silverstream were intended to be kept quiet and certainly not dealt with because of the rich pickings to be had, until Anderson blew the whistle, hence his being hung out to dry. I honestly can’t think of another explanation which would account for the known facts, and this explanation leaves a distasteful impression (again, not objective) of Silverstream being a cash cow.
The impression is even more distasteful when you think that Kirby may genuinely believe Jesus talks to him from the tabernacle and has told him to do this.

I would not have believed a word of your blog today, but the fact is you cannot argue with the Folio entry recorded by the Land Registry.

It serves no good to not plan ahead for the future. Laity of means should band together to secure and renovate church properties.”
Is Pete going to raise money to buy a safe haven for the Silverstream monks, now that we all know that the Diocese of Meath can expel them at any moment?
Pete continues:
“If the storm blows over, such properties can be eventually donated to institutes or religious communities. If the storm worsens, you have a chapel for a canceled priest.”
Good idea, Pete. A cancelled priest like, say, Dom Benedict Anderson?

Pat I’m just going to leave this thought here, but you need to stop being fair on the blog. It’s your blog so publish what you like, but on days like today the cathbots run rings round you. You didn’t have any obligation to publish most of the discussion above about Karen and they’re taking the piss.
As you rightly say they have endless outlets and don’t need to troll your blog. Now they’ll say it’s biased but they belong to the richest organization on earth and can fuck off.

If they object to anything being said about them not doing the cushy jobs with big houses & perks attached, they can well afford to hire a solicitor with all their Vatican treasure. Clerics have an issue with positive criticism, maybe yet another CPD course costing an arm and a leg is in the pipeline 😏

@7.19pm I also watched the Mass on Youtube but I have to admit it seemed like the Brian D’Arcy show. He was clearly confused and got the family members mixed up and showed very little preperation on his part.

6.39pm Fr Brian D’Arcy was ASKED to do the mass. You were not, great to have time to be checking other priests masses in utube. The church is like the rest of the world since smart phones were invented, nothing gets done about anything. Some of them aren’t even satisfied with just the smart phone, they have to get even more equipment and record themselves all over the place – everyone’s either a critic or a wannabe movie star these days. 😒

I’ve got news for the RCC cowards who are planting fake comments on this blog. You won’t get me to back down. I am angry now and it is righteous anger. The more you try to silence me, the harder I will fight for the truth even if it comes in small bits. I will not back down nor will I run and hide. Terry has information that can incriminate you and that is why I am now a threat. I curse the day that Fr Ger Fitzgerald initiated contact with me, and I have no feelings towards him whatsoever now except utter revulsion that he could be a part of something so evil and sinister. My eyes are wide open now so let me spell it out for you. I am not afraid of any of you. I believe that my contacting Pat in March of this year was a divine appointment. He has proven himself to be a faithful servant of God. He does not make a mockery out of God like some of you do with your ”ill gotten gains” and other vile and immoral activities. You may not get your comeuppance in this life, but woe to you when you stand before the Shofet Elyion, the Holy One, the Most High, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Yisrael 🇮🇱).

Bishop Pat, I have never witnessed such a shambles of a memorial mass by Fr Brian D’Arcy in Waterford cathedral today. It was for the showband legend Brendan Bowyer and he made a right pigs ear of it. He apologised that the bishop of Waterford bishop was away in Medjugorje, got family members mixed up and the order of the mass confused. He kept wandering about waving his arms as if herding livestock. We had a homily at the beginning, a long rambling one about himself mainly at the usual time and a long rambling one at the end. He kept emphasising it was the family’s wish for him to conduct the menorial which seemed odd. Brendan’s daughter went forward to offer a reflection but D’Arcy carried on oblivious and she didn’t even get a look in or a chance to speak!! A total disgrace that this man is allowed out let alone conduct mass or his total rambling on nonsense. He did make a point of telling people he was back at some place in Enniskillen in the north. I don’t think Brendan Bowyer’s Father got a mention who was the organist at the cathedral many moons ago.

6.59 to be fair, I know some on here have little time for him but I do think that the way Fr Brian D’Arcy has been treated by his colleagues for all these years is having a severe toll on his mental and physical health. That’s what they do to people, total and utter bastardos & bitches. Blood on their hands in more ways than one.

Perhaps Brian should have married as he said he always wanted to. The priests at the Graan don’t really want him there and he rarely eats with them.

6.37 that sounds like a tragic existence for the poor man. The loneliest place in the world is when one is surrounded by people who are predispositioned to dislike one based on the ruling narrative.

A pity Brian didn’t make any reference to gay relationships when he did the funeral mass for a famous singer a few years ago in the Midlands. Referring to his lifelong or special friend sitting in the front pew doesn’t cut the mustard. Does he think anyone was fooled?
He should get with the program and realise its a ‘so what ‘from most people these days.
Bishop Pat has done more than Brian ever has to assist those struggling in difficult situations, whether gay or divorced. Far better than turning up at showbiz funerals and performing. So much false sincerity. Bet those brown envelopes add up to a pretty penny. Eh, our Brian ??
