In 1972 in the village of Claudy, Ireland, there were a number of IRA Terrorist attacks. Ireland has its share of problems with terrorism but who would have thought that that would go so far as to have a conspiracy involving the Government , Police and even a collaboration with the Catholic church which we always suspect of being behind activities of a dubious nature.
In the incidents no one was ever charged, however an official investigation has revealed that a Priest may have had a significant impact on the bombings. In addition to his role of preaching to the good catholics, being a good catholic himself he also ran a side operation of recruitment for the terrorism industry.
He is reportedly the Director of Operations for the IRA in South Derry.
In a suspicious twist of justice, senior police officers prevented him from being questioned over the allegations. Government ministers equally seem to have been involved in this. Fearing that an arrest of a man in his position(I’m not sure if we’re meaning his directorship or Priesthoodship) could destabilize the country and send it deeper into civil unrest our a full scale civil war.
The Assistant Chief Constable wrote to the Northen Ireland Office stating: ““what action, if any, could be taken to render harmless a dangerous priest, Father Chesney”” and that it should be brought up with more senior members of the church. In response a meeting by the secretary of state and Cardinal Conway the head of the Church in Northern Ireland was held. The Cardinal revealed: “The cardinal said that he knew that the priest was a very bad man and would see what could be done. The cardinal mentioned the possibility of transferring him to Donegal.”
Not that it really makes a difference now, all significant figures that were involved in the tripple conspiricy and perversion of justice are all dead. They say it was by means of natural causes.
