Frank Dunlop and the Southside Parish Priest Fr Larry White

Now that Frank Dunlop has been charged will the Parish Priest (Fr Larry White) now based in the Southside have to go forward and answer questions as to what he as a Priest was doing meeting Frank Dunlop regarding rezoning of Quarryvale while he was based at a Church in the area.

Mr. Dunlop confirmed in questioning that he had meetings with this Priest (Fr Larry White) and phone calls from him.

If you google the flood tribunal for the Independent Newspapers in depth 2000 special on the Quarryvale Rezoning you will also find a letter from this Priest (Fr Larry White) and another Parish Priest to the Dublin Councillors lobbying them to change their vote for the rezoning.

The details also says local clergy had been lobbying.

Why were local Clergy and the Catholic Church getting involved in these dealings?

Would it make their Church land more valuable?

Were they taking payoffs if the zoning went through WITH THEIR HELP?

Did they sell land to the new development?

Is there a COVER UP because they are The Catholic Church in Ireland like the abuse cover ups?

Where are the answers and the transparency??????

Those who now have to PUT UP WITH this Parish Priest (Fr Larry White) running their southside Parish want answers NOW!!

Isn't the SILENCE DEAFENING on this story with no response or explanation from the Church as to what a Priest was doing at the height of the Quarryvale re-zoning having meetings with the brown envelope man Mr. Frank Dunlop.

This is especially in light of this PP and a fellow Parish Priest having their letter to the Dublin County Councillors on show for all to see as Appendix 2 in the Tribunal transcript papers in questions asked by the Government on the Independent Newspapers site for their 2000 special coverage of the Tribunal hearings.

So MANY SKELETONS in this man's cupboard that are now starting to be shaken out in public! About time too.

Might be a good idea if this joins the 'Parish in Bray' items as it does not show up under that heading when you do a search! It would be good if Parishioners may find it at some stage if they do a search. Thank you.

Would be good if this could be transferred to PARISH IN BRAY - the full ORIGINAL feature with PHOTOS and comments to date. Thanks.
**********************************

This additional comment refers to disgraced Anglo Irish Sean Fitzpatrick.

From this feature you can see that Parish Priest Father Larry White has never come clean or answered why he was having dealings with Frank Dunlop and with another Parish Priest canvassing Councillers to change their votes for the rezoning. The Church have remained SILENT on it too.

It might be interesting to also note that Fr. White's best friend an ex-Priest who came along to the Unfair Dismissal hearing AND the Rights Commissioners hearing for ex Secretary having no Contract for 3 years and who will possibly attend at the Equality hearing in the future regarding porn in the workplace and harrassment is a personal friend of Sean Fitzpatrick.

Because of this relationship, said ex Priest (who is joined at the hip to his best friend Father White) had Sean Fitzpatrick make a sizeable donation to Fr. White and Our Lady Queen of Peace when they held their fundraising Golf Classic for Queen of Peace Church at Bray Golf Club in June 2005.

Anglo were the main sponsors!!!!

Did this money come out of the shareholders funds and the funds of those who are now left penniless after the Banks recent problems?

Possibly a few of those penniless shareholders are Parishioners in Queen of Peace and are now being SQUEEZED DRY by Parish Priest to pay for the new project of his the refurbishment of the Church!!!

What is it with Priests, ex Priests, big money connections, corruption in local plannning that Priests get involved in and they are not asked questions or held accountable??

The only people that Fr. White associates with are those that are USEFUL to him or that he can USE. The ordinary Churchgoer who may be as poor as a "Church Mouse" are of no interest - he has nothing to gain. He is an expert at networking having those he considers the cream of local society in all his Church groups.

Are Priests not there to help those from all ranks of Society? Did Jesus not reach out and touch the Lepers? Did anyone ever hear of him only sitting down to break bread with Kings? Did he not choose lowly fishermen as his Disciples?

Sad for Fr. White that Sean Fitzpatrick is now out of business and he cannot go along to him via his ex-Priest friend this time with the begging bowl for his grandoise building plans that have been partly slapped down by the Diocese due to no funding from Share.

As Miley would say "Well Holy God, its about time this man got his just desserts".

That is good coming from one Michael Bradshaw who has done time in Mountjoy and whose finger prints would genuinely be required for records and future reference.

Were there shady dealings? said...

Frank Dunlop is to be sentenced today.

Why has there been no response from the Church as to what current Parish Priest of Our Lady Queen of Peace Bray was doing having meetings with Frank Dunlop and phone calls to him at the time of the rezoning of the land in Quarryvale?

Fr. White even wrote to the Councillors before the vote as can be seen in the special Irish Independent 2000 edition on line for the Tribunal if you google it. Full copy of his letter is there plus fact the clergy in the area campaigned for the rezoning.

This is link to the hearing where Fr. White is mentioned on page 2 of the transcript

Now that Frank Dunlop the good buddy of Parish Priest of Our Lady Queen of Peace Parish Bray has been jailed for his misdeeds why has the Church not been up front and stated what this Parish Priest was doing having meetings and making phone calls to him at the time of the change of planning in Quarryvale when said Parish Priest even wrote to the Councillors before their vote encouraging the change of zoning.

Why are Archbishop's House silent?

There are enough scandals - what is ONE more?

We want to know what business Fr. Larry White had with Frank Dunlop. Did he get a brown envelope personally or on behalf of the Church?
