MAYNOOTH - DUBLIN - SCANDAL

MAYNOOTH - DUBLIN - SCANDAL

TODAY we have two new twists to the Maynooth - Dublin - Scandal - one involving a disappearing priest and one involving a seemingly fine young man who some feared would be corrupted by the Maynooth unhealthy situation.

FATHER DAVID BROUGH:


Fr David Brough


According to a Dublin priest Father David Brough was / is one of Archbishop Diarmuid Martin "fair haired boys".

DM - Archbishop Diarmuid Martin


He held a number of parish appointments in the posh suburbs of Dublin South.

Eventually Diarmuid Martin appointed him to be the parish priest / administrator of the very prestigious parish of RATHMINES with it's beautiful church and Georgian parish priest's house. 


Church of Mary Immaculate - Refuge of Sinners


Father Brough's star was in the ascendant.

But then disaster struck! Father Brough fled his parish literally overnight! One Catholic journalist when asked about Father Brough said: "Oh, you mean the one who fled"?

There are two stories circulating about Father Brough's disappearance.

Story One says that he had a young friend who asked him to leave the priesthood for him with the threat that if he did not leave he would tell the whole world about him.

Story Two says that the young friend was more interested in money than in love and that he attempted to blackmail Father Brough.

In any event Archbishop Martin became involved, Father Brough fled Rathmines and Archbishop Martin arranged accommodation for Father Brough in a comfortable refuge in the very comfortable Dublin 4 area.

I was in college with Fr Brough's Rathmines curate - Fr John Galvin - who was a late vocation.

The Dublin priest now says that Archbishop Martin has - or is about to - appoint Fr Brough to a parish in the distance southerly regions of the Archdiocese. 

The young friend has disappeared from the story. We do not know how he fared or what was the outcome for him.

In any event it does highlight recent claims that Archbishop Martin is not without his problems among his priests. 

Father Brough was replaced in Rathmines by Fr William King who apparently authors erotic novels.

SEMINARIAN ON YEAR OUT:

The Down and Connor Kevin McElroy seminarian has taken a year off his training at Maynooth.


KEVIN McELROY
The Blog hears that Kevin, originally from Ballymena in County Antrim, has gone to Cork where he is being assisted by the Cork priest - Father Tom Dennihan.

Fr Tom Dennihan

Apparently Father Dennihan is trying to get Kevin a placement at University College Cork but the Blog has heard that this plan is being opposed by the UCC chaplain Father Marius O'Reilly?

Fr Marius O'Reilly - Chaplain UCC
Kevin McElroy is from a very good and devout Catholic family in Ballymena. A priest friend of mine speaks particularly well of Kevin's mother and grandmother.

Kevin and an encounter with a spoon
I only met Kevin briefly on one occasion when I found him praying before the Blessed Sacrament in Ballymena parish church and was very impressed.

He was also one of the joint authors of a book published in Ballymena parish called TO LIVE IN THE LOVE OF GOD.

Kevin - Second from left


A Down and Connor priest who knows the family well was very concerned about Kevin going to Maynooth and was afraid that a good young man might be corrupted by the subculture there.

Hopefully that has not happened and hopefully Kevin will become the good man all expected him to become.

  1. I can empathise with Magna Carta's choice of words, because when I left Catholicism it felt exactly like that. I think a lot of people leave because they get so tired of living in a cess pit.

  8. Kevin caused a lot of the issues in Maynooth. He currupted Maynooth and it is clear from this blog that he is continuing to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Having met Kevin a few times in his parish, I would like to reemphasise what Pat says. He is both a truly joyful and prayerful young man - just the sort we so sorely need as priests in the future.

    Maybe this isn't a bad year for him to be doing pastoral work outside the seminary system, whilst Maynooth has a chance to get its act together. Whether it's in UCC or elsewhere, I'm sure it'll only add to his experience and readiness for parish ministry.

    His ordination will be a great day for the parish, please God in the not-too-distant future.

  10. Pat, what's your reading of DM putting him into ministry elsewhere? Presumably he's satisfied then that he's not professionally compromised and can still do good work - is that right?

  12. HornyAndyX would drink in that Fr. Toms room in Maynooth. Now he got him a job in cork near him? Wonder would he do that for other students or is kevin special?

  13. Kevin is hated by most students in Maynooth and it is not because he is pius. It is the other side to him. We see through him like glass and maybe one day you will too Pat.

  14. I find the vultures circling around the mention of another seminarian (namely the Anonymous comments 11.56, 12.00, 12.05, 12.11, 12.14 and 12.18) disturbing - more for themselves, if indeed they are more than one person.

    If they have any evidence that that seminarian is a problem, let them name themselves and provide the evidence. Otherwise, perhaps they might give Christianity a try.

    Thanks be to God that +Pat can give credit where credit is due. If he's a good candidate who prays even when no one expects him too, then long may it last.

  15. I was wondering why kevin had a different lay person male friend each week in Maynooth. Grindr would explain that!!!

  16. Kevin is all teeth. I do not think that would put Tom off. I hope they enjoy their new life together in Cork. Good for them!

  21. Annoymous at 13:33 there did not seem to be much evidence on other people? But pat posted anyway. We know there have been pictures sent to Pat that he has not published. It seems he has more proof on kevin than many other people but yet protects him for information.......

    1. I am not protecting anyone.

      I am NOT IN TOUCH with Kevin McElroy in any way and have never been.

      If I was protecting him why would I be publishing all the comments about him,

      How do we know who HornyAndyX is? He has no pics on his account - at least not that I know.

      W am happy to be corrected.

  22. The alleged relationship between a Deacon and another person is for their conscience. Both of them are adults and clearly if its an exclusive relationship it signals a maturity on their part. I do agree it is incompatible with clerical life but we are dealing here with adults. Consistently referring to them will only cause them to suffer and I'm sure they are aware of this blog. Regarding seminarians and priests who frequent Gay Dating sites, these matters should be taken up with their bishops as a disciplinary matter and not a trial by media.

  24. What if my doctor is secretly overdosing patients. What if my solicitor is corrupt. What if my child's teacher is a paeodophile. what if? what if? what if?. I highly doubt bishops are using gay sex sites. The bottom line is the inappropriate behavior of clerics should be a matter for their bishop/line manager. Naming people and placing their pictures online without their consent is morally wrong. All information should be passed to the authorities.

    1. All information has been passed to the authorities including the Garda.

      You highly doubt if bishops use gay sex sites?

      You need to google the Catholic bishops and archbishops who were sexually active gay men - some of whom were involved seminarians and priests - like Cardinal Keith O'Brien of Scotland.

  25. I Recall Saint Kevin leaving a box of tampons and vasoline outside the door of the seminarian from the Catholic Voice article some months ago. This man said Maynooth helped him to find his "true self" ie homosexual and Fr. Collins wanted him back to continue formation despite proclaiming that he had gay sex with 10 different men both seminarians and lay men towards the end of his one year stint in seminary.

    At least he did the decent thing and left despite recieving a warm welcome to continue on by Collins and co.

    Saint Kev deserves an oscar.

  27. KEVIN MCELROY IS THE BIGGEST FAGGOT IN THE SEMINARY. Always flirting with the lads. He was a total nuisance in the wing and the staff loved him because he could put on the act. He got an innocent lad kicked out in the wing for false allegations. That lad would make a better priest than he ever would. It's interesting that the same thing has happened in Maynooth the year he arrives. Don't be fooled Pat (though you know more than you're letting on) let me remind you he could buy and sell you to a rent boy and you wouldn't know it. BIGGEST FAGGOT IN MAYNOOTH never mind seminary!!!

  35. I have a strong hunch that this is eventually going to lead to some of the boys in the big pointy hats.

    I suspect Bishop Buckley has their names already and its only a matter of time.

    Could I say to the bishops - lads, if any of ye have been "misbehavin'", ye better invent a sudden onset of Alzheimer's, like Seamus Hegarty did, before the shite hit the fan in Derry.

    Because, if Pat Buckley knows yer names, yizzer f**ked.

    2. Ok ok - my bad!

      I'll tell ye something else though that's also pretty horrible - bishops, like Seamus, covering up sexual abuse in Derry and Donegal.

      Horrible too and very sad to see, the lives ruined by abusing priests protected and defended by these bishops - some of whose victims chose suicide as the only way to end their pain.

      Hegarty will burn in hell along with McGinley and Eugene Greene and all the other perverted scumbags.

      He doesn't have Alzheimer's. It's a bull shit ploy to get himself sympathy and to escape from his responsibility. And, you know what, even if he does have Alzheimer's, its too fuckin good for him.

      He deserves something a lot more painful and for which he is fully aware but he will get that in hell after he is dead.

      He will fucking ROAST IN HELL. There will be an especially hot spot reserved for him, Greene, mcGinley and fuckdogs like you, who make apologies for the evil aul bastard!

      Young men in these parts took their own lives over Greene and McGinley whom that cunt Hegarty protected.

    I've had some messages about a man called JOHN HORKAN who was ordained a deacon for TUAM diocese and then not allowed to continue to priesthood.

    I actually met him at the time of his dismissal and had some communication with Tuam about him.

    As he is now left priesthood altogether what has his life style to do with our debate?

  43. I have seen Bishop Seamus Heggarty in the last year and there appeared to be fuck all wrong with the oul phoney.
    The night that McGinley the schoolteacher got jailed for repeated sexual abuse against pupils in the Gaelteach area Heggarty went visiting. Did he call on the families of the abused children. Did he hell. He visited McGinleys family- one of the wealthy families in the area.
    Heggarty might have thought he was clever smirking when he suddenly retired " on health grounds" the day before the publication of a damning report about clergy abuse on his watch in Raphoe.
    He won't smirk before the judgement seat of God.

  44. as a former seminarian in Maynooth I can honestly say that this institution has had a negative effect on me. I left in 2012 and now in a same sex relationship. The amount of BULLSHIT I was fed in Maynooth was unreal. I was considered objective and disordered by both staff and students. thankfully now I have reached a content place in my life. I'm very happy with my partner and were both practicing catholics. being gay and catholic are not incompatible.

  46. I’ve read this blog in recent days and I’m not shocked. Everyone knew about McElroy and Byrne. Their over the top piousity trying to mask their sexcapades has been laughable and their hypocrisy is sickening. I remember at the time of the marriage equality referendum and Byrne preaching for a No vote. The two-facedness of him was sickening. Byrne is a liar and when he is called into see the Archbishop of Dublin he will of course deny everything and lie through his teeth. As the Archbishop has already said people lie to him and threaten legal action. So I am going to be patient and wait for Byrne’s meeting with his Archbishop. After he denies and lies I will then send the Archbishop proof:
    1. Screenshots of his Grindr profiles (yes profiles) with his photos and text
    2. Screenshots of his chats on Grindr with me and one other guy
    3. Photos of him and in the George (courtesy of his mates from facebook)
    4. Photos of him at the circuit festival in Barcelona
    5. Another photo of him in Barcelona in a rather comprising position
    After the Archbishop views these he will be in no doubt and Byrne the liar will be exposed. The Archbishop can then interview a few of us here including CG who knows and has witnessed all of this here and in Barcelona. The only thing that hypocrites fear is being exposed. Watching them leave social media in the past week is laughable. Even Byrne’s UK Valladoilid mates (one was a fuck bud) Landers and Stanton have scurried off facebook. I wonder why. It’s time for your close-up Byrne.
