HERO - NERO - ZERO AND GIRO
The priests of the Catholic Diocese of Derry have four bishops living among them whom they nickname: HERO, NERO, ZERO and GIRO.
The priests call the retired Bishop of Derry Eddie Daly "Hero" because of his world publicised picture waving a white hankie during The Troubles in Belfast.
The Derry priests call Bishop Seamus Hegarty "Nero" as they regard his as a bit of a dictator.
They call the retired auxiliary bishop of Derry "Zero" as they think that he was unremarkable as a person and a bishop. In fact one of his Maynooth classmates told me today that he was an "also ran".
