LETTER TO GENERAL MANAGER – NARETH CARE VILLAGE BELFAST
COPIED TO NAZARETH SUPERIOR BELFAST
25th March 2023
Dear Ms Blaney,
On his public Facebook page, Father Paddy McCafferty – PP Corpus Christi Belfast has claimed that one of your male residents – a Patrick Walsh (93) is “intimidating, frightening and upsetting” one of your elderly female residents – a retired Carmelite nun!
According to Fr Mc Cafferty, this bullying behaviour is taking place in the nun’s private room.
Fr Mc Cafferty repeats this claim in a letter to Patrick Walsh quoted below and again published on Facebook.
“October 18th, 2022 – Feast of St Luke, Evangelist.
Letter to Paddy Walsh last October, 2022, to which, yes, guess what? That’s right! Not a peep out of him in response!
By the way, Paddy, see wee Sr X? You leave her alone. She doesn’t want you in her room. You are bullying, intimidating, frightening, and upsetting her. Leave her alone and stop harassing her.
You haven’t changed. Terrorising a very frail and saintly little Carmelite sister, just like you did teenage boys years ago, in St Malachy’s College. “
Ms. Blaney, I hereby formally make you aware of this allegation and ask you to investigate it thoroughly.
(Bishop) Pat Buckley
Larne. Co. Antrim.
