In Ireland, a ‘Silenced’ Priest Speaks

Rhona Tarrant | May 10 2016

If you were to choose a venue for a public talk with Father Tony Flannery, a Redemptorist priest, the old, disused courthouse in the town of Dingle, County Kerry is as apt as any. Flannery sits at a table by the witness stand to speak about 100 years of the church in Ireland during the Feile no Bealthaine, an annual weekend festival held in the town.

Church Reform: National and International

For the past six years I have been actively involved in the movement for Church Reform. My involvement began with a meeting to consider setting up an association for priests whose purpose was to give priests a voice in church and society, and to support them in the many challenges priests face today. The meeting was quickly followed with the founding of the Association of Catholic Priests In the autumn of 2010.

Speaking in Dingle


Last Saturday I was in Dingle, speaking on the Church and my dealing with the CDF, as part of Feile no Bealthaine, an annual weekend festival held in the town.
It was held in the old courthouse at 2.00 in the afternoon. The format that was decided by the organisers was an interview. And the person chosen to interview me was Dominican, Michael Commane.
The format worked really well. Michael is experienced in the media world, and he did an excellent job, and made the whole thing very easy for me.
