Who was the player? Surely he is the one who let the story out.

Once again is the paper supposed to censor bad or embarrassing news?
It's not a story though
It is a story. Remember that a young lad died recently due to one of these scams. We shouldn't pretend that they don't exist.
Who it happened to (in this case) is not a story. No need to identify who it was. I was able to guess who it was ffs. I'm sure the individual involved heads wrecked enough as it is without the Irish News giving clues to his identity

How were you able to guess who it was?

Interesting front page story today, Catholic Church gifted a house in Drumbo & Carryduff (outskirts of Belfast) in a person's will, reading between the lines its been sold at considerably under market value with a nod and a wink, the Parish Finance Committee were dismissed from their positions for having the temerity to ask searching questions! Go Catholic Church.

Is greed the issue?? Corruption / Nepotism / Cronyism more likely I would have thought (& I honestly don't know the full story), if it was greed he'd surely not have undervalued it.

I imagine the difference in value could have been gifted to said Priest possibly??

Patrick Murphy's column in today's paper should be obligatory reading for all

Parish Finance Committee,made up of lay people,did its job,raised concerns, informed other parishioners and as a result the Bishop has initiated a full independent audit.Congratulations Catholic Church on robust and effective procedures.Maybe the Government could follow suit.

Did the finance committee get booted out when they first raised concerns last year?

They have done their job,and the independent audit will prove or disprove any irregularities.Once again anti Catholics all too quick to blame the Church without knowing any facts.Finance Committees are regularly disbanded in many organisations.Let the audit proceed and the fact that it is proceeding proves the efficacy of systems and procedures

The Parish Priest,the fact that the Bishop has ordered an independent financial audit means that wrongdoing and whoever is responsible for it will be exposed

If that is the case,yes,and he should face the consequences,but let's wait until the audit takes place before jumping to any conclusions.
