Parish In Bray (23)

If it ever needed proving, considering the Ferns Report, Ryan Report and no doubt the forthcoming Dublin Report, the unhealthy link between An Garda Síochána and the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland has been yet again proven.

We here in CW have become aware of the following troubling incident which has been brought to our attention.

On Friday 26th June 2009, the private dwelling of a person who has brought her mis-treatment by Fr Larry White of a parish in Bray County Wicklow, had a visit from An Garda Síochána.

The 'officers' involved, namely Detective Sergeant Eamon O'Neill, Detective John McDonnell and Cormac Walsh, paid a most unwelcome visit to this lady and decided to flash an alleged search warrant (and failed to provide her with a copy thereof - not very lawful one would be of the belief) before proceeding to ransack her home in the search for only god knows what.

They removed 2 computers, old mobile phones belonging to her son, a collection of newspaper clippings, 2 personal notebooks with very private details and some photographs.

No doubt these items were removed in an attempt to intimidate and harass this lady into rescinding her allegations (all well founded) against Fr White who has done grave disservice to the priesthood by his actions and certainly holds sway with such members of the force.

Indeed, it is well known that one of the above named 'officers' attempted to dissuade the lady concerned from furthering any action against Fr White in an almost intimidating manner not so long ago.

The current action is also no doubt an attempt to continue in this manner and certainly considering the matter is before the Circuit Court in less than a months time so one has to wonder if the lawfully (?) obtained material as part of the raid will be passed to Fr White and his 'legal' team in an attempt to prevent the truth from coming out.

In the course of their raid, reference was made to this site by the 'officers' so it is nice to know we are being monitored are indeed the telephones of the lady concerned and some clergy with whom she has reason to communicate.

Also, reference was made in a rather unprofessional manner (well it is An Garda Síochána after all!!) towards a priest who was disparaged by the 'officers' and in that regard may we take the opportunity to point them to the following which no doubt will be brought to their attention at some stage -

Dominus Iesus

This Declaration of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith was signed and published by Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) in August of the same year.

In this Declaration, the Roman Catholic Church recognizes the validity of Orders and Sacraments of other Catholic denominations.

"These Churches which, while not existing in perfect communion with the (Roman) Catholic Church, remain united to her by means of the closest bonds, that is, by apostolic succession and a valid Eucharist, and are true particular Churches."

"Therefore, these separated Churches and communities as such...have by no means been deprived of significance and importance in the mystery of salvation.

For the spirit of Christ has not refrained from using them as means of salvation which derive their efficacy from the very fullness of grace and truth entrusted to the Catholic Church."

IV Unicity and Unity of the Church, 17

So now Messrs. O'Neill, McDonnell and Walsh, it might be more in your line to investigate real crime rather than perceived crime and do the jobs the Irish State pays you to do rather than being kept in the pocket of Fr White.

And be careful of who you name because libel and slander laws do exist for a reason....pity you are not so quick to enforce them!!!
