We all know this disgusting scandal is as a result of The Church and The State, but who do you hold mostly accountable, and should therefore pay out the most in compensation to victims?

If this is the new standard, every second male teacher from the 80s is for the chop now...

Apparently it's a financial irregularity at play here.

Can't help but think of the old 'but that money was just resting in my account' now.

Sounds like a lovely man with a perfect temperament to be a priest and to be involved in Tyrone football.

He was in my Parish for a while some years ago. A more aloof, head up my own arse, arrogant person I've yet to meet.
Careful now

Probably sound advice but in this case every word I've read is true unfortunately, he was hateful.

Have to say my own experience of Fr McAleer in Academy days was of a fairly decent man. Aloof yes but sure what priest wouldn't seem aloof to a school of teenage boys. Loved the football and would have had a stern word if messing about. Never saw anything physical and would be very surprised if the allegations are of a sexual nature. Think many parishioners in Donaghmore would be fond of him too.

Did all the Tyrone posters on the board go to the same school?

Looks like they went to a different school to the Armagh ones that Fr McAleer taught at

He taught in St Patrick's Grammar Armagh and later became Principal of St Patrick's Academy in Dungannon replacing Father Faul.

Yeah, I think he left St Pat's and then went to Principal at St Brigid's.  I left St Pat's in 1995 and I think it was shortly after that he moved across the city.
