    Look Frank, I told him we either get the money or he can expect a visit from the Spanish Inquisition.

    Could you imagine the pressure to fully vet whoever gets to celebrate the mass with the pope?
    Last time out there was Micheal Cleary and Bishop Casey – both who it later transpired had fathered children.

    This time around?

      When applying for any job involving children, including volunteering, you must undergo a rigorous Garda vetting process, including gathering police statements from other countries you’ve lived and worked in. Catholic Church employees? Nah.

        Trying to remember when I last read about large numbers of non-Pakistani men being prosecuted for grooming and sexual offences against young girls in the UK.
        That’s all.
        Just a list of names.
        Make of it what you will.

        1. Owen

          Ollie – I’m kind a lost on your point here, however, to answer your question as directly as possible, I do recall reading a few articles regarding large groups of men who are non-Pakistani raping under aged individuals in the UK…. also in Australia, and Ireland, and all over Africa, and the US. All the same group. All white males, respected, and prominent in society.

        2. Toe Up

          Are those individuals, or people who represent them, planning in organising a world meeting of families series of events in Ireland over the next week?

      as far as I can tell this has nothing to do with the Catholic Church or our society at this point,
      if you are trying to suggest horrible things happen everywhere, we know that , however it is kind of beside the point in question
      you total dose

  4. Truth in the News

    O’Malley has got wind of something else and has wisely decided not to grace the
    proceedings, the Pope and his entourage would be better respected if they took
    themselves up to Tuam on the N17, indeed they would be all back to recite the
    Angelus at the exact time 12.00.at Knock Chapel.
