Bishop Murphy welcomes Apology

The Bishop of Kerry has welcomed the apology presented to the High Court in Dublin yesterday by Eileen Culloty in relation to a series of untrue allegations she had made against Fr Liam O’Brien.
Bishop Murphy states:
“As bishop I have a pastoral responsibility to the faithful in the diocese of Kerry, and in particular a duty of care to my priests. In the case of Fr. Liam O Brien I am delighted that the truth has been established. Fr O Brien is a priest in good standing. I met with Fr. Liam O Brien on a number of occasions and discussed the situation with him. A “Care of Priests” group was established a number of years ago in the diocese with the role of supporting priests. Building supports for priests will continue to be a priority in the diocese of Kerry into the future.”
