CWI: Clerical Whispers Investigates

My dear colleagues, brothers and sisters in Christ and all who visit this site, we are delighted to announce the establishment of CWI: Clerical Whispers Investigates.

We here at CW have, over the last 18 months been inundated with requests from people to publish submissions to us, but for legal reasons, we were prevented from doing so.

Due to the continued influx of such submissions, it was decided to get legal assistance and also get a more qualified investigator to follow up on these submissions and assess their validity.

Having carried out over 11 separate investigations, and having availed of legal advice, we will now proceed to publishing the majority of these claims, with the remaining 3 contributions remaining active until further information is obtained that will either collapse or support the publishing of such allegations.

Such allegations that WILL be published shall contain

* Names that will identify ALL persons concerned;

* Evidence - documentary shall also be published in total;

* Current update as to where the matter is currently situated, and

* Right to reply shall be accorded to all parties concerned.

If you wish to submit an allegation for investigation, please do so by making contact with us via and subject it CWI for our attention and we will take care of it from there.


Of the many submissions, many are concerned with Child Sex Abuse (CSA) allegations that seem to have gone unattended for, and there shall be names of Gardaí in there with their clerical masters; 3 in relation to clerical bullying and 4 in relation to Irish Bishops conference agencies the first of which shall be published this coming Thursday in total.

Once published, we invite responses from those concerned so as to offer a fair balance and right to reply, but please do understand - one and all - that if one party does not respond, then it does not mean either it is biased on our part or indeed on theirs!!

We sincerely looking forward to hearing from all, and please God, it might serve a purpose of showing those further up the hierarchial ladder that all is not well down here at ground level and something needs to be done!!!

Get in touch, get it investigated, get it resolved!!!
