BRIAN D’ARCY’S RECENT VISIT TO WATERFORD

D’ARCY

A message from Waterford.

Recently a Waterford reader sent ne the following:

I checked out this message with a Waterford priest who replied:

“Quite incorrect.


His father Stanley Bowyer was mentioned at the start and at the end of Mass.
I didn’t once see him waving his arms.
He didn’t bless himself at all at the beginning of Mass.
He almost made the congregation feel that they didn’t need to pray at all.
The speech at the start was too long.
No long winded speech at the end.

D’arcy did not mention that Phonsie was gone to Medjugorje.

Fr John Harris conveyed Phonsie’s apologies to the family before Mass started.

Whoever Waterford Reporter is ….not very accurate”.

PAT SAYS

I am very much among those who cringe when D’Arcy (77) pushes himself forward, especially at the funerals of well known people.

And D’Arcy has a major habit of doing that.

I cannot understand why Irish bishops and parish priests allow D’Arcy to muscle in so often.

Unless a family has a priest in the family, the normal person celebrating the Funeral Mass is the parish priest or curate of the parish.

The priests of Clogher diocese, where D’Arcy lives, are always complaining about his habit of butting in on funerals.

Why don’t they just tell him to join the other mourners in the pews?

The PP in Castleblayney went out of his way to keep D’Arcy out of the limelight at the funeral of the legendry Country singer BIG TOM Mc Bride.

The PP got a lot of clerical pats on the back for that.

I played a small roll in keeping Brian in the pews at the funeral of the late, great GAY BYRNE.

People think that D’Arcy is a great liberal. Not at all. Brian is a “sixpence each way” man and keeps both side happy.

He certainly is no Tony Flannery.

No matter what you think of Tony, he has put his money where his mouth is and has suffered the consequences.

TONY FLANNERY

I never got to meet Brendan Bowyer.

But his dad, Stanley, below taught me in St John’s in Waterford.

STANLEY BOWYER RIP

I see Darcy was in the middle of the performers at the graveside sing song. I’m surprised he didn’t sing at it. He goes to a brave number of funerals. He keeps an alb and stole permanently in the sacristy of the parish church in Enniskillen (it is not a Passionist church) for all the funerals he muscles into.

D’arcy seems to very vain. What I always notice about him on tv is he puts on a face that seems to say “when I speak its very important”. He’s a bit pretentious and is a bit of an attention whore.
I have yet to hear him talk about any liberal issues. Its all about him really. He wants his face everywhere.

I watched the mass on You Tube and the characterisation by Waterford Reporter is not entirely accurate. Someone is having a go at the irrepressible Brian D’arcy. It’s a pity that Brian is ridiculed so much by fellow priests and by some on your blog. He’s not my cup of tea not someone who rocks my boat but I do appreciate that the showbands of Ireland and present day celebrities have Brian as their “chaplain”. Many, many entertainers and their families are greatly indebted to Brian D’arcy for supporting them and caring for them at very difficult moments in their lives. Pat, I find it very discouraging that any oppirtunuty you get, you slate Brian. Let him get on with ministering to whomsoever he chooses. Why does his style bother you so much? I don’t like his style but I would find no reason to be constantly criticising him. Let it be said, he can touch oeople and care for them in a way you and I can’t do. I am glad there are “chaplains” like Brian still with us. If Brian was to get a euro every time he’s criticised here, he’d be a millionaire!! I hope when we’re his age, a little worn out, nit in good gealth that we will have the energy he has and – be “wanted” or “requested” for such moments…Ireland is changing very rapidly. Leave the man alone as you’ve carried too many similar stories before about him.

Like the vast majority of priests, I bet that D’Arcy didn’t even think much about this Mass or make any preparations until he arrived in the sacristy five minutes before going out on the altar. That’s the way they do it at anything they are presiding over. Including Sunday Mass week after week. They rely on instinct and winging it and just regurgitate the usual. old bollocks that they have for years. So unprofessional and careless. In to the bargain there is probably some early manifestation of dementia and reducing mental capacity in someone like D’Arcy. He was always full of twee shite, and still is.

What really is the rationale for the constant downing of Fr. Brian Darcy? Brian carved out a niche for himself over many, many years. His attendance at various masses and other occasions has been his life’s ministry. Many of the “influencers” or celebs request priests like Brian. That’s fine. Let him be. If he gets a little mixed up, remember he’s not a youngster anymore and many of us at younger ages make more errors and mistakes than we might imagine. Brian was once a great inspiration to me as a teenager. I moved in but I feel many clergy are envious of him. We need to stop this deliberate chasing down Brian D’Arcy and guve credit where’s it’s due. Pat, isn’t it time to leave him do what he’s always done.

Bill Mulvihill might not write on the blog but he might contribute as The Spy Who Loved Me or using one of his other sign- in names. Having said that, his writing style is so ‘rococo’ he should be easy to spot.

Last night he was threatenig to post contributers I.P addresses. Let me help you out, Bill – my current IP Adresss is 42.12.220.60 —— fill your boots.

To reassure readers – I have no way of knowing readers / commentators ip addresses. And I have no desire to know them.

William was just being a little bit silly in his threat to expose IP adresses.
First of all, he would have to hack your blog – an illegal activity but something William might be cable off on a moral level, although I don’t believe he would have the technical level of expertise – he might, of course, pay for it.
It’s my understanding that IP addresses can’t be found on WordPress. The company would be collecting them for legal reasons but that would involve hacking the company. They wouldn’t be handing them out to men with bruised egos.
I’m sure William is also aware that many people use a VPN service or an onion browser which makes the tracking of IP addresses very, very difficult if not impossible to track.
AND if you pull off a miracle and find the REAL IP address you need to convince a service provider that you really need the location and street address of that computer or phone. Someone calling William a silly bugger on the internet isn’t going to yield those results.
Of course, William may know some very powerful people who could, perhaps, do this very, very difficult job for him but then, are they going to do this because someone hurt his feelings on the internet?

1.42: Good news for everyone. Bill tried to pulverise everyone on this blog and others with unprovable and unsubstantiated allegations. Somehow many people seem to have enraged Bill over the years and his life unfolded into one big enigma, laden with deep angst. Psychologically, he vented his fury at all to the point of unacceptable vulgarity and crass innuendo. Perhaps a cooling off period of self reflection will be useful to him. No exhausted his energy in self destruct, negative ways. I wish him well even though I scrolled past most of his rants.

Pat @ 1:42 I have to say I liked William (Bill) Mulvihill he spoke from his heart and said it as he saw it .However, he did rattle on probably a wee bit much, to the point that it was hard to follow what he was talking about in the end. Be that as it may, there are worse than him on your blog Pat.

D’Arcy doesn’t need to shop in Asda or anywhere else in Enniskillen as there is a very good cook in the Graan. He does not have an electric car either. I remember Fr Victor at the Graan saying that the community enjoyed having everything done for them so that tells you all you need to know.
