DEACON BYRNE AND BRAY

DEACON BYRNE IN BRAY

email: bishopbuckley1@outlook.com


MICHAEL BYRNE IN BRAY CHURCH SACRISTY WITH ARCHBISHOP MARTIN
IT IS ALLEGED THAT A VERY SERIOUS INCIDENT TOOK PLACE ON CHURCH PROPERTY IN A PARISH IN BRAY, COUNTY WICKLOW IN 2015.

The incident DID NOT INVOLVE MINORS, UNDERAGE OR VULNERABLE ADULTS.

The incident involved two men who had met through the SILVERDADDIES gay sex site. 




We saw yesterday that Deacon Michael Byrne had a profile on Silverdaddies - a profile that he has since removed.

AS PART OF HIS MAYNOOTH training Michael Byrne was placed in the Bray Parish in Co. Wicklow during 2015 and was involved in the liturgical welcoming of the replica of The Shroud of Turin along with Archbishop Martin and some deacons and priests.



I have spoken by email and telephone with the man who claims to have been a victim in the alleged incident and have passed on all the information - and two photographs he gave me - to Archbishop Diarmuid Martin.

I have also offered the man  - that if he wishes to make a complaint to the Garda that I will accompany him to the police station.

I have also asked him to consider speaking directly to Archbishop Martin and have offered to accompany him to such a meeting if he agrees.


FROM LEFT: MICHAEL BYRNE, CHRIS DERWIN, DIARMUID MARTIN AND FR ???


The man in question has not made his mind up on these issues at present and I have no intention of putting him under any more pressure than he has been under now for many months. 

After yesterday's Blog some "defenders" have suggested that Deacon Byrne's Silverdaddies profile was an old one and is therefore "old news".

These people need to have it pointed out to them that Deacon Byrne published that profile on SILVERDADDIES in 2015 - when he was FOUR YEARS into him seminary training and was just ONE YEAR away from ordination to the diaconate.

In other words he was committed to celibacy for years and a future lifetime.

Why would such a man open a Silverdaddies account in his 4th year in seminary.

They also need to have it pointed out to them that Deacon Byrne was still in touch with at least one man he met on Silverdaddies right up until last Saturday January 7th 2017.

On this occasion he asked the man in question to visit him in "an apartment in Dublin that had been rented for him by the Archdiocese of Dublin".

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin made it very clear to me in the past few days that neither he or anyone in the archdiocese had provided that apartment for Deacon Byrne.

So who paid for the Dublin apartment?

The mind boggles !

    1. Gorgeous thinks that he can be a priest and have the habits of a rabbit.

      He has so much knowledge about others - and so many "admirers" that he regards himself as untouchable.

      It is some kind of mixture of vanity, arrogance and a brass neck.

      This train in running wild and free down a track heading for disaster for himself and others.

      Only Diarmuid Martin can stop him.

      But will he ? Can he ?

  15. 1. The Venerable English College (affectionately known as the Venereal when I was a student in Rome): I suspect if you dig a bit deeper there you would fine some rather exotic goings on ? Remember, it's long since been called the English vice !

    2. Deacon Byrne: What a silly boy ! Having been caught out once, here he is 'exposing' himself again. I remember blogging something some months ago about him and Rory, that they would after having been caught out go through the motions and say all the right things, but would carry on with their antics as before, just being a bit more prudent and careful, especially on social media. Well, Deacon Byrne doesn't appear to be that clever. I do agree somewhat with the post from a few days ago that commented on his psychological state and the fact that in some strange way he wants to be caught out because he knows that he isn't suited for the priestly life.

    3. Ab Martin of Dublin really does need to get a grip of this and act decisively. In the photos published on this site, he doesn't look particularly comfortable, so perhaps he already had an inkling of the antics of the people he is sharing the photo with. Now he needs to be firm, which doesn't discount him being merciful and kind to the people concerned, but he does need to resolve Deacon Byrne's position for the good of the Deacon himself, for the good of the Church, and to put an end to all this silliness that continues to do damage.

    1. 11.22 I remember being called in by Dominic Conway when I was heavy on the bottle. I promised I would mend my ways and even shed a few crocodile tears. 48 hours later it was business as usual. In my little world I was invincible. Logic had nothing to do with it. Is unhealthy sex like drink or drugs an addiction for some? Eventually I had to pay the piper. What I am saying is the church needs to be proactive in dealing with these guys. If not society needs to call them to. book

  16. So let me get this straight, that's an old profile from 2015 that he's since deleted. He's still in contact with some of the sugardaddies and had sex with one of them on church property in Bray. He had sex with another sugardaddy in a rented apartment in Dublin over christmas. Pat has the pictures to prove it in which MJB is clearly identifiable. They were all consenting adults what crime has been comitted? If it is all true why is MJB still in Rome if he is ordained he will surely become Rory Coyle II

  23. Well it cannot have been anything to serious otherwise the alleged 'victim' would have gone to the police. I just don't buy the line that a Silver Daddy was a victim here, and in a vulnerable situation. So unless we are talking about rape, or unwanted sexual contact (hard to credit that one frankly - all sounds very consensual to me), then we are dealing with a rehash of an old story. It does sound possible though that Silver Daddy is a rather vicious old queen who has decided to get some revenge. Silver Daddy is hurting? Doubt it!

    It is old news that MB was a bit of a goer. Since I don't have a blue rinse like most of the commentators, I cannot get too excited about it. The fact that he met men on one app or another isn't news, just a finessing of an old tale. If he met someone in January this year for sex (being in contact with someone isn't a crime), then that is new. Otherwise, same old boring story.

    1. Ya know, I don't mind people having opinions. Some like body hair, others do not. What gets my goat is when people come up with pseudo scientific crap about shaving body hair being unhealthy. Have you ever thought that perhaps retaining the body hair and thus making it more difficult for unhealthy bacteria to be removed from the body is an unhealthy practice? And as a fellow non-gay person, albeit significantly less prejudiced, it is instructive to note that removing pubic hair is a fairly common practice among heteros too. Apart from backwoodsman I imagine. I am glad you have the STD clinic statistics to hand - useful stuff.

  29. I honestly don't understand why some of you think that Deacon Byrne is hot ! I've studied the photos carefully, and except for a cute-ish smile, he's not really got a lot to drool over. He's a bit on the pudgy side I think, and looks to me as though he's a bit wide in the hips. Hence the comment about his big fat hairy arse. He's a young guy, and whatever saving graces he has in the short term will be quickly overtaken by the onset of fat, and he is going to end up a dumpling. And as for the eyebrows ! So, let us not concern ourselves with his looks but be more concerned for his spiritual health and wellbeing .... !

  31. I was on the website of Dublin Archdiocese the other day looking for some information. One thing that struck me was the sheer number of priests. Albeit smaller, there are still a very significant number. Can you imagine, at the current minuscule rate of vocations in the Dublin Archdiocese, what that list will look like in 10-20 years? It will go off a cliff. I am not sure what vocations numbers are like in Dublin, but I have a feeling we are talking about a small handful of ordinations each year (if even that). While some of the goings on at Maynooth are indeed amusing, the serious side to all of this is that that place is destroying vocations.

    Imagine that we had a seminary doing its job properly with good formators. Vocations that are now wasted might have been transformed with good guidance. Today's story perhaps provides titillation for some, but there is a very serious side to it. If the story is true, I don't believe that any of that was inevitable - people have negative elements to their character but that can be dealt with.

    The problem is Maynooth. It fails its students and it is failing the church in Ireland. It is not fit for mission. The only thing keeping it open is pride - that great 'Catholic' Ireland won't have its own seminary any more on its own soil - what a blow to pride. We need to follow Scotland's example - close it down and move everything to Rome for the time being. If we can reopen a new seminary in Ireland after a few years on better terms, then well and good.

  32. The Irish Bishops do not want to face reality so they will obfuscate and deny as far as possible when it comes to Maynooth or any other thorny issue. They don't want to face the truth about the crumbling church around them. Zero imagination and totally risk averse. No surprise RTE is reporting that they have shelved the married priest proposal and won't be mentioning it to the Pope when they meet him.

    1. At this point in time, I don't think we should see it as a negative that the bishops have "shelved" the married priest proposal. As I see it, to make this proposal would be another attempt to obfuscate and deny, as you rightly point out that they are doing, Anon.17:11. The problem, as Anon.17:10 (along with others) has pointed out, is Maynooth - the bishops will discuss anything else but a proper clean-up of Maynooth, which would undoubtedly have a positive effect on vocations to priesthood. On this very blog, a number of commentators over the past few months have indicated that they would consider a vocation to priesthood but can't pursue it because they can't face the prospect of studying in Maynooth. Rather than deal with the issue of a poisonous seminary, the bishops will make proposals which seem easier and which won't upset the status quo in Maynooth, such as married priests or female deacons. Had they opted to present this proposal to Francis, it would have signaled to me yet another example of how they are avoiding the root causes of the vocations crisis, one of which is unquestionably Maynooth.

  39. This is so shameful - it sickens me. Over the last 5 years i really have been called to God and follow him. I have spoken to the vocations director in my diocese, I was sent to St Lukes in manchester - where I spent a whole three days been grilled on my sexual interests, relatioshsips - I have never experienced any thing like it before and I doubt I ever will again. Before anyone jumps to any concluesions I have not had a crazy sexual past - i am a normal 27 year old bloke. I havent been accepted to seminary yet - feedback said i was sexaully immature - I have had relatsionships - i havent had gay sex nor have i been interested in blokes like that - i masturbate and continue to do so , its a natural thing , of course after the act i feel guiilty but there is little i can do about it. It sickens me that so many seminarians have slipped trough the net - whats going down?

    1. Anonymous, I am sorry to hear of your experience but anyone could really be forgiven for thinking the hierarchy don't want priests. They particularly don't want as priests, straightforward, honest people with good intentions, like yourself. Given that you're nit gay, have had relationships and are presumably honest about your life, it's a bit difficult to see what can be defined as further sexual maturation in your case.
      My feeling is that when 'formators' come up with these ridiculous 'problems' with healthy people, it is code for saying they don"t want you.

    4. Anon.20:04 - I presume (and I may be wrong) that you are the same man who posted last night. While your honesty regarding the psychological assessment is admirable, it is not surprising that you are being told that you are sexually immature. The Catholic Church teaches that masturbation is not a healthy expression of sexuality, and indeed the catechism describes the practice as disordered because it separates sexual pleasure from its procreative and unitive purposes. As a priest you will be expected to be chastely celibate. You may not agree with this, but this is what the Church expects from her priests - sadly, as we have seen, some fall terribly, but you do not even have the intention to live chastely at the moment. You are essentially setting yourself up as your own magisterium, deciding which parts of Church teaching you will accept and which ones you will not.

      The men who are getting "through the net", whose actions are indeed sickening, should not be your standard. Please, if you feel called to priesthood, do not aspire to be merely "better" than these who are getting through the net - your standard is Christ, and you must aspire to be like Him. If the Lord is calling you to be a priest, He is calling you to live in fidelity and sincerity according to the guidance of the Church. Our Lord, if He is calling you, is calling you to greatness, to holiness - I don't believe that you should be as quick to say "there is little I can do about it". A good step might be to at least desire to be chaste, acknowledging that you may fall, but with the Lord's help you will get up and try again. Finally, to say that something is natural does not mean it is not sinful - we are sinful on account of our fallen nature, and sin often appeals to us but we can feel rotten after it, which makes some despair of the Lord's mercy. It does not mean, however, that we don't still try to avoid it.

      If you feel called, pray for the grace to embrace virtuously all that that call demands of you.

  42. The criminality of the alleged incident in Bray can only be established if the alleged victim decides to go to the Garda, make a complaint and press charges.

    What is surely established, beyond any doubt, provided the evidence is trustworthy and uncontaminated, is MJB's utter unsuitability for the priesthood, the necessity of his immediate expulsion and the speedy initiation of the canonical process to dismiss him from the clerical state.

    Is there any possibility though, Pat, that these photographs, stories and web links have been "doctored", fabricated or photo-shopped?

    That would be my only concern. Is there any chance that MJB is being set up or victimised? It seems unlikely but obviously, in that case, the scenario is entirely different.

    1. MJB is not the manipulated but the manipulator.

      There is nothing deficient in the information / evidence available.

    2. In that case, Pat, surely DM has to remove him pronto? Any failure to do so raises grave issues about Archbishop Martin's judgement.

    1. The Holy Father won't be told and won't have a clue what's going on as his representative in The Park possibly turns a blind eye to such matters. He just wants a quiet life and unblemished record until a more interesting posting comes along.

  52. Reading recent blogs I had a sense of déjà vu. They brought to mind earlier blogs about a young clergyman in the early stages of his priestly ministry who suffered verbal abuse, mental distress, denigration and humiliation at the hands of older more experienced men. Athlone Andy

  53. A young man or woman seeking an older partner must have issues. What is in it for a gay man in his twenties seeking a man aged 50 to 90? Nothing in common, except a bizarre psychological daddy fix by the younger, or lust by the older. When I was in my 20s there was no way I fancied people decades older. Grindr etc are not relationship or dating sites. Pure no strings attached. What normal attractive gay man in his 20s, who could have anyone he wanted, go for someone decades older?
