FATHER CIARAN DALLAT - LINDA ISSUES CHALLENGE.

FATHER CIARAN DALLAT - LINDA ISSUES CHALLENGE


"LINDA" - THE LADY AT THE CENTRE OF THE FATHER CIARAN DALLAT SCANDAL - HAS TODAY ISSUED A CHALLENGE TO FATHER DALLAT.

SHE HAS OFFERED TO FACE FATHER DALLAT - FACE TO FACE - IN THE PRESENCE OF AN INDEPENDENT CHAIRPERSON OR MEDIATOR - TO DISCUSS THEIR WHOLE RELATIONSHIP FROM BEGINNING TO END - INCLUDING THE SAD MISCARRIAGE OF THEIR BABY.

Linda has issued this challenge following certain comments on this Blog suggesting that she does not exist.

Linda is hurt by the suggestion that she does not exist and that she is an invention of the newspapers, Pat Buckley or this Blog.

Up until now people have been criticising her for remaining anonymous. 

So she is now willing to come forward and face Father Dallat in a face to face encounter  and challenge him on any and every aspect of their affair.

This will obviously mean that she will be abandoning her anonymity.

But she is willing to do this because Father Dallat has gone into hiding and and Bishop Treanor to whom she brought the matter in the first place has let her down.

So now it is over to Father Dallat.

If he is innocent of the accusations laid against him by Linda here is a perfect opportunity to challenge those accusations and to put his own side of the story. 

If a woman on her own can offer this level of willingness to be held accountable then surely a MAN and a priest with the whole power of the Catholic Church behind him can step up to the mark?

What about it Ciaran?

Come out of hiding and face this lone woman !!!!

  1. As a priest of Down and Connor I must congratulate Linda on her courage in offering to come forward and have her claims examined by a completely independent tribunal / authority.

    For the life of me I cannot understand why Ciaran has run away and is in hiding. Its not as if he killed someone or hurt a child!

    This matter should have been settled internally when Pat sent Linda to Bishop Treanor. Ciaran should have stood aside while Bishop Treanor investigated Linda's claims.

    From what I have gathered this would have satisfied Linda completely.

    Then we would have no Irish News, no Sunday Life, no Belfast Telegraph etc.

    What a diocesan mess!

  2. I am a parishioner of St Peters and I support Father Dallat. I think he should accept "Linda's" offer and clear his name.

  3. It's been a beautiful day in West Belfast, a day made all the more beautiful by those great twin erections at St Peter's, the spires.
    Although added in 1888, about 127 years ago, they still stand proud and tall over the Cathedral.
    It's consoling to know that they have been joined by other proud erections in the very near vicinity in recent years!

    1. I can guarantee you 100% that Linda did not intend to go public all along.

      There is correspondence from Bishop Treanor and her that supports this position.

      Linda went public after Bishop Treanor failoed - over a 2 week period - to properly address that matter.

    2. Pat I fear Linda has sucked you in just as she did ciaran x

    3. I believe Linda. Bishop Treanor believed Linda. Ciaran Barnes believed Linda. The counsellor believes Linda.

      And I would be more than happy to be "challenged" by Ciaran Dallats version of events.

      But he has disappeared.

      Can I also say I have worked with over 120 priests girlfriends and have a good capacity to work out which are exaggerating and which are not.

    1. I have not seen anywhere that Linda's counselling was today?

      She is attending weekly counselling sessions paid for by Bishop Treanor.

      I do not think that the day, time and venue of anyone's counselling is anybody's business?

  6. I think this challenge being printed here is like something you would see on Jerry Springer. In order for Linda to maintain any credibility she would need to tell you to cool it with the sensationalist blogs. I've been following your blogs all week but this one turned my stomach.

    1. I had intended - and in fact had published a blog from the BBC about religion and science creating a mutual meeting place.

      In fact it was Linda that asked me to let people know - in response to people denying that she existed - that she was willing to meet Ciaran Dallat in the company of an independent mediator / chairperson to sort out what was the truth.

      If you find my Blogs stomach turning I would advise you not to visit them.

      Easy answer - hit the OFF button.

  7. These are people lives being broadcast all over a public forum like a soap opera - that is what is stomach turning.
    This entire situation is awful and it gets more shambolic by the day.

    1. I agree.

      There are two people who can all this to an end:

      Father Ciaran Dallat.

      Bishop Noel Treanor.

      Humpty Dumpty had a great fall;
      All the King's horses and all the King's men,
      Couldn't put Humpty together again.

  12. Ciaran had a hidden dame,
    Whom he courted without shame;
    When she baked a little bun,
    Dallat headed on the run

  13. Treanor had a horny clerk,
    Who showed himself to be a jerk;
    Then Linda went to Crazy Pat,
    And Noel couldn't handle that

  14. The church gets scared when they are asked to come out of the shadows. You are no stranger to Media Pat. Please do all you can to ensure Linda is safe. There is always a big void after the media loose interest. This WILL happen. This is when Linda will need you most. Please pass to her my sincere good wishes and prayers

    1. Sean,

      Please be assured that I am in constant touch with Linda and will continue to give her all the support I can.
      I have also found her an excellent counsellor and she also has access to other ladies in her position.
      The past week has been very difficult for her but in coming forward she no longer feels powerless. She is now well on the way to taking control of all aspects of this matter and eventually closure.
