CWI : Operation Latharna (15)

As 2023 comes to its end, and as we brace ourselves for whatever 2024 may yet bring, we wish to now put the following questions to Mr Buckley, bearing in mind his failure - thus far - to answer them heretofore.

9th July 2023 - The Disappearing Post

1) The blog posting of July 9th 2023 on your blog - why has it disappeared?

2) Who removed it?

3) Was it removed by you?

4) If not you, then whom?

5) Why?

6) Was someone instructed to remove it?

7) If so, by whom?

8) If not, why?

9) Was it a fake 'report'?

10) Did you check its veracity before publishing?

11) Was it recieved by you, as claimed, via 'a comment'?

12) If that is so, why has the post disappeared since circa 2130hrs on Wednesday 19th July 2023, and the comments (86) left in place?

13) Are these comments trustworthy?

14) Is this the first time that you have placed rather questionable posts on your blog?


4th August 2023 - 'Mental Health Of Clergy' Post

1. How many articles have you written - or had written by others for your blog - where you have named (and attempted to shame) other clergy, on the basis of very questionable comments, gossip and in at least one very contentious situation, lies?

You, Mr Buckley, like to credit yourself with, and I quote,

  about exposing the corruption, abuse and criminality in the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland and internationally.

Yet, Mr Buckley, the methods you use in doing so are far more questionable than the alleged or perceived behaviour of those whom you slander, defame and indeed enable others to do likewise via your comments section on any posting any given day.

2. Do you not think, Mr Buckley, that you can be wrong in any of this? We know you are, and we have evidence - as indeed you do - which shows that you have got it terribly wrong in a situation, and yet you have gone against your own claim, and again we quote you from your own blog....

March 26th 2023 : If I wronged you I will, if you wish, correct it here and give you a full apology. (unquote).

3. There is a priest (one of many) whom you have done a major wrong, but the law dictates that, at present, we comment no further on that matter.

What we can ask of you, Mr Buckley, is this....are YOU aware, or do you even care, to know the damage you have perpetrated on this young priest due to the untruths you have published, and allowed others to publish relative to aforementioned young priest?

4. Even moreso, why have you allowed articles and comments to be published despite you having evidence that exposes all that you have alleged as a total lie?  

5. You have oft claimed to have been wronged by the hierarchy, and your own self-claim to be a bishop puts you in the rank of a hierarch - so why do you perpetuate same said wrong on others? Two wrongs most certainly do not make a right - in any way, shape or form.

6. What damage, Mr Buckley, do you care to think you have visited upon others by both irregularly (in many cases) and constantly (in as many more cases), naming them and denigrating them on your blog?

7. You claim, as indeed others do of you also, that you are an 'honest journalist', but yet that does not hold water...and again I reference evidence that we hold (as do you) that would totally discredit your blog for at least the past year - why have you not investigated - as any 'honest journalist would - the claims made to you?

8. Why do you perpetuate lies, and regrettably in many instances knowing them to be so, in the knowledge that they are having an impact on the lives of others?

You speak of mental well being and suicide and yet your own blog is nothing short of a destructive force in the former, and may have yet been (and could be) a major considered contributor in the latter.

9. Does that not bother you?

10. Do you have a conscience?


19th August 2023 -  'Unwanted Abuser' Post

1. Do you have any evidence for the following : (Quote) Lobb (62) seems to have nothing better to do in his life than abuse and insult people on here all day every day. (unquote) - evidence of such? Or is it that he is questioning you in such a way so as not to follow your own narrative?

2. (Quote) I don’t know anything about his mental health (and don’t want to) or what his problems are.(unquote) - so if you don't, then why raise it as an issue? Are you medically qualified one way or the other to pass such a comment or perceived judgement?

3. (Quote) But I do know I do not want him and his abuse on this blog.(unquote) But it is ok to allow abuse by others on your blog such as that of YD and KI - just 2 of the more explicit - and indeed your own comment the other day - ref 14th August at 0840hrs inst (quote) Pathetic comment and person. I think someone needs a Lobb-otomy. (unquote) - Is that not abuse Mr Buckley? Do you not sit down and take the time to screen what comments you do and do not allow to be published? Or have you outsourced that to someone down South?

4. (Quote) At this stage, I regard what he is doing as harassment. (unquote) we're surprised that you of all people Mr Buckley, would know what harassment is considering the very nature of your blogspot - shall we name just a few who you have passed comment on, allowed others comments to be passed on, and indeed continue to allow such comments to be passed on - comments without a basis of evidence let it be noted.

5. (Quote) If he continues, I will contact the police in Downpatrick, where he lives, and make a formal harassment complaint against him. (unquote) God help the PSNI with you Mr Buckely - they may as well hold on to you while you are there and have you account for your own behaviour which is all the more questionable than that of all others who have been defamed, slandered (and continue to be) and otherwise lied about on your blog.

6. Do you not think Mr Buckley, that by somewhat identifying where the person who is currently the target of your vitriol lives, you may have endangered their life? But sure, why would you care considering you have allowed KI and YD to do so already on your blog? 


27th August 2023 -  'Legal Lyttle' Post

Why Mr Buckley?

Have you received a negative response?

Pending the investigation, Mr Buckley, why did you permit demeaning comments to be posted about the solicitor representing Fr Lyttle such as the comment at
