Bullshit, he came across Smyth once in his life and I'm sure he thought he would have been adequately d
ealt with, it's not as if he electronically tagged Smyth in 1975 and monitored his every move thereafter, you are waging a bizarre personal vendetta at this stage.
   :o is that why he covered up for Smyth?

Conor Mortimer has written a book? Seriously?

Couldn't believe this either.

I never seen someone so desperate to break into the media but has been left sitting on the shelf.
When Colm Parkinson broke into media it gave every other gobshite a chance

You could almost compare them to Spurs last year except at this stage Spurs were actually playing well and were second in the table and won all their europa league games.
Hopefully Liverpool can kick on and the new ( and old) players start delivering or the pressure will be really on

Insubordination and dissent is not good for any organisation.The last time this happened on a major basis in Catholic Church protestantism resulted.The decisions of the hierarchy must be obeyed without question as they are divinely informed at all times.
Sgt McCabe would have had come craic coming to you with his issues.

Fr Kevin Hegarty is a priest near Belmullet. In the early 90's he was editor of the catholic magazine , Intercom and was sacked after raising the issue of sex abuse in the church.

Fr Hegarty said last week: "The efforts to cover up clerical sexual abuse were in one sense disturbing - See more at: http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/bishops-gave-editor-sack-over-articles-on-sex-abuse-26541720.html#sthash.awJOx2HM.dpuf

If that poll is correct, then I suppose the status quo remains.
with the new powers promised to Scotland it will be no status quo.

Those tweets have vanished. No doubt his account was hacked.
He is a classy guy based on his tweets of the 10th April...

Some people are saying if Yes prevails, next on the agenda will be a united Ireland. I couldn't see it myself, too much of a mess to clean up in the north first and that job has barely begun. My money would be on Wales going next.
Id say there is more hope of the Isle of Man breaking away, the Welsh seems quite content with there lot .

This makes it particularly clear that young Fr Brady reported accurately to the Bishop, in effect his line manager, who should have acted accord ingly.

Also the victim says to the best of his knowledge his parents were never made aware?  Incredible statement.With or without any oath did he not think of telling his parents?

Rest of interview is simply two journalists speculating and doing what journalists do best, inventing sensationalist stories
Young??? He was 36 years old!!!! He had been a priest for 11 years and had a doctorate in canon law for 8 years. He was hardly some fella on work experience!

Er has not Cardinal Brady been defending himself via the media with uncharacteristic firmness for 4 years,for which,on this thread alone,he has been variously accused of arrogance and of being a " miserable b**tard"?
It must be really tough on the poor Cardinal to be called called names. He must be very sensitive to be hurt by being called arrogant and a miserable. If he was a kid you might say
''Sticks and stones will break my bones
But names will never hurt me''

What Brady actually said to the kids was
''Pricks and bones have ripped your holes
But you must never tell me............ or anyone else. ever. ''

Robin Seymour would take some beating from an Irish perspective having just won his 20th mountain biking national championship and has won 18 cyclocross nationals.

If Liverpool get £14 million for Borini they're going to get relegated because that would be every scrap of luck used up in one go.
Swapping Borini for Remy plus £7m is serious business!

In the lead up to the last local elections, Labour claimed that over 90, 000 jobs had been created and over 4,000 (I think) new classrooms had been built.
I tee no evidence to suggest that the former claim is true but I'm certain that the second one was not. I contacted some former colleagues, members of the INTO executive to check and, as expected, I found out that the INTO at least knew nothing about any major building initiative.
If If there had been any significant increase in ether number of classrooms in the second level sector, I would have heard about it. I didn't and so I take both claims to be bogus.


There has been 3 phases completed of the Schools PPP Programme ( out of 5), i don't know how many rooms have been built but i remember something about the scheme catering for 20,000 pupils ( a taxi man must have told me) . I would consider 27 schools to be a major building initiative .
Even if 27 schools have been built, that's a long, long way short of 4,000 classrooms which is the point I've been stressing.
Maybe your taxi driver might tell you where those schools have been built next time you talk to him. That's more than was built in any of the Celtic Tiger years.
Lar you are the one who said 4000 rooms, can you verify this somehow? i only stated that there is currently the Schools PPP programme in place to build 27 schools of which 3 phases of 5 have been complete. In my mind this is a major building initiative. i dont need my taxi driver to tell me, its not too difficult to find the schools
