ARMAGH FAILS TO CONFIRM ABUSE PRIEST STEPDOWN
EAMON MARTINS SAFEGUARDING OFFICER AIDAN GORDON HAS FAILED TO ANSWER MY EMAIL ASKING IF FR. SEAN J QUINN HAS BEEN ASKED TO STEP ASIDE FROM PARISH WORK AFTER THE DIOCESE REPORTED HIM AGAIN THIS WEEK TO THE AUTHORITIES!
Eamon Martin pays Gordon £110,000 per year to handle naughty priests for him according to Monasterboice PP Fr. Bill Mulvihill.
Three of Quinn's victims took their own lives last year and a fourth is currently in hospital attempting to recover from his sexual abuse.
Daly, Brady and now Amy Martin have and are protecting Quinn who apparently has big dirt on the Armagh dioceses and it's clergy and bishops.
|ABUSER SEAN J QUINN|
Amy is in hiding on holidays in Ireland but keeping in touch with Gordon and one of his secretaries Sharon on a regular basis.
He is back in Ara Coeli on Monday.
Will he act against Quinn on Monday?
Or will he be more interested in tracking down the Armagh whistleblower Bill Mulvihill?
It shows you that, still, in the RC outfit they take criticism of the bishops and clergy more seriously than the sexual abuse of children.
Eamon Martin is a disgrace to the term Christian and is bring more and more damaging scandal on Armagh.
Pope Francis should bring Amy on the plane with him to Rome in a couple of weeks and put him in charge of printing Vatican stamps.
Amy licked her way to the top, so she will be great at licking stamps.

KING PUCK IS TRYING TO REINVENT HIMSELF
King Puck AKA Sean Jones is busy writing to Google asking them to take down my blogs about him.
Now that he has shed a few pounds he is trying to clean up his internet history so that people cannot research his past.
In his complaint he accuses the blog of "questioning my sexuality"
Of "embarrising him in his new employment".
The thing about it is that everyone knows all about him now and people have long memories.
Once a Puck, always a Puck.
THE VATICAN ASKED IRISH GOVERNMENT TO EXEMPT ALL CHURCH FILES FROM STATE AUTHORITIES INVESTIGATIONS !!!
Dermot Ahern says the then Vatican official Cardinal Sodano ‘was quite blunt’
Former minister for foreign affairs Dermot Ahern. He told Cardinal Sodano “on no account could I give such an undertaking and that it was a matter that would have to be decided by the government anyhow”.
Former minister for foreign affairs Dermot Ahern says a senior Vatican official sought an agreement in 2004 under which Ireland would indemnify the Catholic Church against legal actions for compensation by clerical child sexual-abuse survivors.
“No one forewarned me. I was completely taken aback,” Mr Ahern said of the approach by Vatican secretary of state Cardinal Angelo Sodano.
Revealing details of the meeting for the first time, the former minister told The Irish Times: “The cardinal had just come off a plane from the US where he had successfully concluded claims. It was a very direct question. He wanted to know whether the Irish government would indemnify the Vatican against any similar claims in Ireland. He was as blunt as that.”
Mr Ahern told him that “on no account could I give such an undertaking and that it was a matter that would have to be decided by the government anyhow. I was very annoyed.”
The cardinal referred to the Irish State’s heavy involvement in education as possible grounds for such an indemnity where the church was concerned. “He referred to the US cases and the potentially serious financial implications [for the church] in Ireland,” said Mr Ahern.
“I spoke to him in no uncertain terms about the separation of powers in Ireland and how the Irish State was a Republic and about the redress board [set up to compensate people who had been in religious-run institutions as children].”
The cardinal “knew things were being investigated in Ireland”, Mr Ahern said. At the time, the Ryan commission was investigating the abuse of children in orphanages, reformatories and industrial schools run by 18 religious congregations, and the Ferns inquiry was also under way.
Four months previous to Mr Ahern’s November 2004 meeting with Cardinal Sodano, the Commissions of Investigation Act was passed by the Dáil mandating the government to set up an inquiry into the handling of clerical child sex abuse in Dublin’s Catholic archdiocese.
The context of Mr Ahern’s meeting with Cardinal Sodano were celebrations marking 75 years of diplomatic relations between Ireland and the Holy See, beginning in 1929.
Mr Ahern was en route to a meeting with Pope John Paul when he met Cardinal Sodano. “I was on my way back from [Palestinian president] Yasser Arafat’s funeral and had begun our discussion about the Middle East. I was very annoyed. He was quite blunt.” The subject was not raised again.
Mr Ahern said he could not remember whether he informed the government when he returned to Dublin. “I may have, informally. I probably told Bertie [then taoiseach Bertie Ahern],” he said.
At an event in Rome’s Irish College during the same visit, Mr Ahern announced the Irish government’s intention to institute arrangements for “an open, transparent and regular dialogue with churches and with philosophical and non-confessional organisations”. This structured dialogue was launched at Dublin Castle in February 2007.
