ANOTHER MAYNOOTH COVER UP ???



SEVERAL PEOPLE ASSOCIATED WITH MAYNOOTH ARE CLAIMING THAT A SECRET DEAL WAS REACHED WITH A LAY STUDENT WHO WAS A SEDUCTION TARGET BY A SEMINARIAN.

The following message comes from a seminarian:




"Pat, look into Xxxxx Xxxxxx who sexually assaulted a Lay music student. This assault was widely viewed by both clergy and laity in Pugin Hall. Xxxxx attempted to kiss the lay student several times and accused the victim of adding seminarians on Grindr. The victim felt violated and reported the issue to Hughie Connolly. Hughie covered the abuse up by offering the victim a music scholarship to keep his mouth shut. The educational settlement. This assault of verbal and physical abuse was witnessed by many people in Pugin Hall. Xxxxxx was intoxicated and advanced on this young man".

So, is this allegation by another seminarian true?

If it is, it is yet another example of a cover-up at Maynooth.

The seminarian mentioned in the above piece has constantly featured in stories coming out of Maynooth.

I have written to his bishop drawing his attention to this seminarian's behaviour.

To date, the bishop has not acknowledged my letter and has not assured me that any action will be taken.

It seems to me that the bishops, and Maynooth itself, are so short of seminarians that they will take anyone - no matter how badly they behave.

When I started seminary in 1970 you could have been thrown out for the slightest breach of the rule.

One seminarian in my time, a serious but genuine character, was actually expelled because he spent too much time in the chapel praying!

Now you can do what you want, including leading an obvious sexually promiscuous life, and Maynooth and the bishops will take you by the hand and protect you.

Many of these young men who are going through now will cause hurt and havoc in dioceses and parishes for 50 years to come.

  1. I don't think the deal would ever be acknowledged by the bishop. Hugh Connolly was mad for secret deals - even the smallest of meetings with him were to be kept secret, particularly where he made small deals for gathering information on seminarian peers.

    It is most likely that the bishop has known all along and is probably funding the scholarship; where else would Hughie have got the funds for such a deal?

    And a lot of Bishops have done similar deals for priests. I would tell more but there was a 'confidentially clause' in my deal too.

    1. The seminary has plenty of cash. It earns millions from the rent it charges NUIM and Trocaire, Pugin Hall and the b&b rooms are profitable and it gets a fat EU cheque every year for the farm. A privately arranged financial settlement would be of no consequence to the college.

      Delete
    2. I don't think that those who put their spare change into Lenten Trocaire boxes realise that Maynooth charges Trocaire €1m annually to occupy the former seminary bedrooms in Long Corridor, which would otherwise lie empty. The bishops forced Trocaire to relocate to Maynooth and then charged them rent. It's a very under-reported disgrace.

      Delete
    3. So a seminarian can do this and the College Presidentbcan wilfully conceal it from the seminarian's bishop??

      Delete
    4. The bishops are kept in the dark. They get a report about their sems twice a year but have little interest or knowledge of day-to-day life in the college. They seem to assume that it's like the way it was in their day. Dermo, despite having Maynooth in his diocese, hates setting foot in the place. Even during Trustee meetings he avoids eating in the college and goes out to the village or even eats sandwiches in his Volvo.

What about the child who was wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger?’

    1. Murphy O’Connor is well documented as being dismayed at the appointments of Mark Davies to Shrewsbury and Bishop Egan to Portsmouth. He sat on the Congregation for Bishops in Rome and ensured liberal appointments to Dioceses in England & Wales. He wasn’t present at the vote to recommend these right wing bishops to these two Dioceses. When asked later about his views on these appointments Murphy O’Connor simply laughed and blamed his flight for being late in getting to Rome for the vote.

  7. Personally, I don't believe a word of it. If the alleged incident was "widely viewed" by by both clergy and laity in Pugin Hall, then offering the "victim" a music scholarship would not guarantee that the incident would never come to light. Hughie would have to have bought the silence of every single witness! There is simply no way that word of this would not have gotten out if it had indeed been witnessed by many. I also don't know how Hughie would have been able to just offer a music scholarship to the alleged victim since the music department is part of NUIM and not St. Patrick's College.

    2. 11:37 - are you suggesting that the "victim" was an organ scholar?

      Having to be up every day to play the organ for morning prayer at 7 in the seminary would not be my idea of adequate or appealing "hush money".

      Sacred music is only studied as a module by seminarians - there is no department of sacred music as such.

      To make such definitive statements effectively closes the door of redemption on 'Yes' voters. No priest has any such power, nor any such right.

      I can't help but think that there is a naked desire for vengeance against 'Yes' voters on the part of certain clerics, an itch to punish them for daring to go against Roman Catholic Church teaching on abortion.

      Be careful: it is precisely this overweening clerical arrogance that landed the Church in Ireland in so much bother to begin with.

    2. No criminal law exists. Police cannot and will not remove people if they are peaceful and the police have already said they will not intervene unless a criminal offence has been committed. Eamon Martin has himself to blame and many will hold him responsible for spoiling a special day for many families in the parish. It will go ahead as planned inside the Church.

    3. The Confirmation candidates, sponsors and their families have been given reassurance regarding Sunday. Extra security will be present and also the police. No banners or posters allowed inside the Church so any riff raff will be kept out. No photos or videos to be taken also. Bishop Buckley will not be allowed near the church let alone inside it.

    4. Security or no security, the protest is still going ahead inside the Church against Fr. Gates. Nobody can stop anyone from going into a Church for a public event.

Some disagree with aspects of the blog and their views, sometimes forcefully expressed are regularly respectfully taken on board.
