BYRNE AND THE FATHER GARDNER AFFAIR

TIM GARDNER FORMER DOMINICAN

A leading figure in Catholic education pleaded guilty in a London court this week to downloading more than 5,000 images of child pornography from the internet to his computer.

Fr Tim Gardner, 41, a former religious education adviser to the Catholic Education Service (CES), admitted possession of the images when he appeared at Southwark Crown Court on Monday. Of the 5,005 images cited, many were graded at level four and five – the most extreme – and one depicted bestiality.

Bishop Byrne wanted to bring his best friend, the paedophile Dominican priest TIM GARDNER, to live with him in Bishop’s house!!!

Byrne was enraged when safeguarding officer Angie Richardson told him : “NO, YOU CAN NOT HAVE GARDNER LIVING WITH YOU ON DIOCESAN PROPERTY.

Why would Byrne want such a man living with him?

***** Byrne tried to get Gardner a position as an educationalist on a H&N project for vulnerable people in a Peru mission !!!

BYRNE AND THE CANON MC COY AFFAIR

A Catholic priest took his own life days after learning police were investigating him over a ‘historic allegation’, a coroner has ruled.

Canon Michael McCoy, 57, was found dead at his apartment in Newcastle on April 10 last year.

Mc Coy, Byrne’s cathedral Dean, held weekly gay parties in a cathedral room attended by gay cathedral volunteers.

These meetings took place during the Covid lockdown.

These very boozy parties ( who paid for the booze) were attended by lay men, and a drag artist called MISS RORY.

Byrne knew about these parties and did nothing.

Did he ever attend them?

We don’t know at present.

The Bishop, sex offender and McCoy socialised together and the Bishop also took the sex offender into the private quarters in the cathedral.

YOUNG ALTAR SERVER?

One young male altar server in his 20s was invited to those parties.

Later, Byrne made that young man his PRIVATE SACRISTAN.

SEX ABUSE VICTIMS

The diocesan safeguarding officer ANGIE RICHSRDSON, a former police officer, refused to let Byrne meet victims of abuse because of “his lack of judgement and lack of a moral compass.”

RESIGNATION OF ANGIE RICHARDSON

The Hexham and Newcastle safeguarding officer, Angie Richardson, resigned specifically because Byrne refused to take safeguarding advice and undermined safeguarding decisions at every turn.

Angie received no support from her line manager, Fintona Standfield, the non Catholic COF – chief operating officer of Hexham and Newcastle diocese.

More, much more to come …….
