A cleric who accidentally showed gay porn to parents of schoolchildren in the North has been appointed parish priest of Clogherhead. The appointment, which was made without any warning to parishioners, has brought complaints from angry parents in the Co Louth village. It is nearly a year since Fr Martin McVeigh decided to take a sabbatical after the images flashed up on a screen as he made a presentation to the parents of children preparing for confession in advance of their First Holy Communion.

 

Wonder where he was sent for his prayer and penance?

An Ecumenical Matter

You may remember Father Martin McVeigh (above) whose power point presentation to parents [of children at a primary school in County Tyrone] about Holy Communion unexpectedly displayed gay porn images.

An inquiry was launched by the archdiocese and Fr Martin McVeigh said his character had been “blackened” by “innuendo and fabrication” in the media.

Well, you’re probably not going to believe this but:

Yesterday’s Irish News (behind paywall and via Bronagh Mc).

Miraculously, the laptop was the only item stolen during the burglary.

Thus endeth the inquiry.
