Sale of Kilnacrott Abbey near completion « via Northern Sound Radio
Feb 16 2012

The sale of Holy Trinity Abbey at Kilnacrott in Cavan is nearing completion.
It's understood that although no deal has been signed, a verbal agreement is in place with a Cavan based company, Direction For Our Times.
As part of the agreement, the graveyard, which includes the burial place of paedophile priest Fr Brendan Smyth, will stay in place.
Direction for Our Times are a controversial Catholic sect approved by the Bishop of Kilmore, Leo O'Reilly. They tried to purchase the Abbey before but pulled out due to lack of funds. A local retirement home had wanted to turn the Abbey into a nursing home but had required the removal of Smyth’s remains off site. Now Direction for our Times have found the money and are being sold the site for an undisclosed sum.

Well this man gets to stay where he is. and the poor dead ladies from the madelaine laundrys dident get that either. thay could always wrapp him up and send him to the vatican.

if people remembered the after life that would make things a whole lot better because people would know there are consequences for their actions.

yes but many of us dont believe in afterlife. if we want to live this life here on earth well people always fix thier own standards. this is where i seperate from religion. I know myself whats right or wrong. and there are so many very frightening things there. i think we are responsable for our own actes.. all stories of suffering and hate of these or those. no thanks. as for teaching children such stories makes them live in fear .
