Parish In Bray (30)

As reported here on Clerical Whispers the case relating to the Appeal of the Unfair Dismissal of Parish Secretary Margaret O'Hehir and Parish Priest Fr. Larry White of Queen of Peace Bray was on the call over list in Wicklow Circuit Court on 7th December.

Ms. O'Hehir's Solicitor was in attendance anxious to get a new date for the hearing as Fr. White had cancelled the hearing for October citing his witness was not available.

This case began September 2005!!!!

Fr. White did not even deem it important to have anyone from his legal team present to sort out a new date for the hearing.

Therefore as his legal people were not there all the February 2010 dates were assigned to other cases.

Here we have this arrogant Parish Priest once again dragging his heels and delaying things. Isn't it time Archbishop Martin whipped him into place????

Interesting the name OUR LADY QUEEN OF PEACE PARISH BRAY has disappeared from the title of the case it is now just FR. LARRY WHITE.

Does that mean Diarmuid Martin has given him the elbow - cut him free - he is an embarrassment to him and he can continue with the case on his own and hopefully pay his own legal bills from here on in? Oh joy if that is the case there is justice!!!!

All we can say to Fr. White is "he can run but he cannot hide" this case is going to Court and is going to be heard and reported on. Too many people are now interested in the outcome.

The next hearings are May 11-20 and Ms. O'Hehir's Solicitors a week ago contacted the legal team for Fr. White who are required to give a letter agreeing to a date to be set during that term within 7 days.

As of writing this there is NO REPLY.

With all the bad publicity the Church and Clergy are getting is Fr. Larry White now afraid to show his face in Court?

Typical of a bully - when the going gets tough the bully slides under a rock and pulls it over him.

Many have said that Archbishop Diarmuid Martin should resign as he was also "mentioned" in the Murphy report.


We agree the one with the sad face and the quivering lips on tv interviews has to face the music and go too.

He does not listen to many complaints about his Diocesan Priests and does not give a flying fig for the suffering they cause.

These Priests already have their plans for post Christmas love nest rendevous and that is all that is on their mind at the moment and how fast they can beat it out of their Church to get to what is important to them - certainly not the Christmas ceremonies.

They just have to be there to rake in the old dosh and Christmas dues to make it a merrier Christmas for their coffers. As for those who attend those ceremonies these Priests just consider them annoying fodder who are a means to an end and keep them in the manner to which they have become accustomed by the Church and the laity.

This all sounds very very sad but it is true. They don't care about their Church, their Parish, their Parishioners, all they care about is numero uno and how many more times they can con everyone.

Hope the Hell Fires are waiting for them in the next life for the damage they have caused to others in this life.

We think these guys know something that we don't - that there is no afterlife, no reward or punishment we just have now. If they were God fearing men who think about punishment and reward in the next life they would NOT live today as they do. They just bought into the fairytale of life in the Church a job for life funded by others to take as much as you can and give nothing back.

We wish then an UN Merry Christmas but they will probably all be pissed (pardon our French) in the arms of their illicit women Christmas night so won't really care.

It beggars belief that Srchbishop Diarmuid Martin has allowed this man to remain as a serving parish priest at The Queen of Peace.
Obviously he has no shame, no thought for how Fr. larry White's behaviour affects the faith of his people.

Fr. larry White is obviously trying to wear margaret down with all these delays in the courtroom. But you know as it is so often in life, what goes around, comes around, and I have no doubt that Fr. Larry will not prosper and neither will Sr. Peggy who is an absolute disgrace to her Order.

Best they just pack their bags and go! Good luck to margaret and to Liz all the good people who support her cause!!

I agree with Liz. Why does Dermuid Martin keep hold of this man and others like him.
They destroy the faith and bring the church into disrepute, but still they are left to their own devices? Why????
This man in Bray is a real horror sack him I say, rid the church of bad priests like this!
