    Default Spiritans (Holy Ghost Fathers) accused in IT of cover-up of sexual abuse by its priests in its schools

    Missionaries and owner/managers of many of Irelands most prestigious Irish schools (including Blackrock College, St Mary' Rathmines, St. Michael's and Rockwell College), the Spiritans (formerly known as the Holy Ghost Fathers), are accused today by Patsy McGarry of covering up a number of cases of sexual abuse in its schools in Ireland, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Kenya and Canada. Some of the accusations involve priests known to have been abusing being returned to the ministry. Allegations of cover-up date from as late as the late 1990s.

    The articles are all printed under the Rubric "Spiritans Crisis". Is there more to come?

    Suspicious timing.

    Well connnected yachtsmen and other British paedophiles raped and murdered children in Jersey and in Welsh care homes - there is a whole volume of evidence waiting to be released on this that the cops and news media have been sitting on for years - and the Irish Times prefers to report on this stuff.

    Interesting.

    What?

    Could you start a thread on this?

    With links?

    Why on earth would McGarry or anyone else in the Irish Times want to distract attention from a horrific set of allegations of sexual abuse and murder in England and Wales?

    This is really taking conspiracy theory too far!

    There is a thread on it.

    As for why the irish Times might want to detrect attention from it, you might want to examine carefully the ownership structure of that organisation.

    I'm serious. There are good reasons why the Irish Times would wish to deflect attention from issues that are breaking in the UK media at present.
