Dublin Archbishop Not Sending Trainee Priests To Maynooth After Scandal

98 FM

The Archdiocese of Dublin won’t be sending its trainee priests to the National Seminary in Maynooth.

It’s been confirmed the three students will instead be sent to the Irish college in Rome, the Irish Independent reports.

Suggestions had been made that a gay subculture exists at the Maynooth seminary, after it was revealed in May that some student priests had been using a gay dating app.

Dublin’s Archbishop Diarmuid Martin has denied that his decision is linked to the scandal.
