Blasts from the past. Patriot priests?

Youtube is becoming an increasingly interesting resource and is being used as a form of open video archiving.

Tonight on I came across two pieces on republican priests.

Fr Patrick Ryan

Fr Pat Moloney

  • marketeeer

    Oh dear, Mark-Aren’t you just inviting the usual numbskulls to indulge in their favourite sport of villifying the Holy Roman Empire?

  • Mark

    Listened to Pat Moloney video. It’s typical of the nutcase priest who plays to an audience and uses his position to promote everything but Jesus Christ.

    Even republican priests are antichristian. What point are you trying to make?

  • pith

    That money was just resting in his account.

  • ulsterfan

    He talks of Easter and does not mention the name Jesus Christ.
    He talks of freedom but does not say that some who fought for it denied the right to life to many thousands.
    Priests and politics do not mix.

  • Mark McGregor


    No point being made. I’m linking something that interested me.

  • Hubert Cumberdale

    It was a perfectly legitimate monetary transfer.

  • Greagoir O’ Frainclin

    Fathere Patrick Ryan?………that mad auld bastard….he should have been on Father Ted!

  • Max

    So if he was so bad was wasn’t he wanted for extradition under something that was extraditable rather than just something that was a crime in the U.K. and not elsewhere?

  • tinnish

    The ethos of Irish Republicanism captured in two short video clips.

    A great resource for posterity when the question is asked about what happened in Ireland during the 20th Century.

    I’m sure all their fellow travellers in the ‘movement’ are proud of these fine Christian gentlemen.

  • blinding

    And some people are turning away from religion


  • pfhl

    This is disturbing.

    You would think he would know stab city was not a capital city if he was born there. Also his reference to how belfast crossmaglen and parts of tyrone did not reap the benefits of the celtic tiger with a soft c of course. Who suggested they did?

    It is interesting all the same, I mind reading how Bik mc Farlane seriously considred the priesthood before deciding to become an IRA volunteer as he felt he could serve his community better as a volunteer. I think its mentioned in ten men dead.

    I wonder if that would be an ecumenical matter.

    I think I know Iris robinson’s favourite quote from the show.

    Father Ted: The way I feel now I could convert gays!

  • Ulsters my homeland

    I’ve transcripted this from the video provided by Mark, so there may be errors:

    In relation to Father Patrick Ryans’s statement in which he said, [i]”Father Patrick Ryan will never, will never, be tried in any court on behalf of the enemy who’s occupying our country. I would die a thousand deaths before I would permit that to happen, and no apologies for that.”[/i]

    This Priest is definitely a servant to the Vatican Canons and has little respect for the constitutions of man. I’ll reveal more:

    [b]”It is not lawful for a layman to sit in judgment upon a clergyman. Secular judges who dare, in the exercise of a damnable presumption, to compel priests to pay their debts, are to be restrained by spiritual censures.” [/b][i][Decret. Gregorii, lib. ii. tit. ii. cap. i. ii. vi, and Sexti Decret. lib. ii. tit. ii. cap. ii.][/i]

    ….as for Father Patrick Ryan’s conclusion that he would, “[i]die a thousand deaths before I would permit that to happen”[/i], we can only presume the Vatican Canon has another law which offers Priests, etc, a way out of facing conviction against the law of the land.

  • pfhl


    The man is from the Republic of Ireland, he was saying he would not be tried in a british court or before british law. That is not the law of his land. Can you get your heaqd round that? No need to know the ins and outs of cannon law, just simple common sense.

  • Ulsters my homeland

    pfhl, the man was a Roman Priest. He was not concerned about the law of your land or my land his laws were from Rome and he clearly abided by them.

  • Ulsters my homeland

    We’ve got to remember that ‘pfhl’ may not be a nationalist

  • Big Maggie

    pfhl, the man was a Roman Priest

    Are you sure? My understanding is that he was born in Milan.

  • Ulsters my homeland

    [i]Are you sure? My understanding is that he was born in Milan.”[/i]

    so he’s a milanian Priest? big deal!

  • up the ra

    Fr Pat Moloney speaks the truth

  • pith


    ‘Milanian’. Every time I think you cannot possibly surpass yourself, you do it again.

    How is he a Roman priest? Is he in charge of the Temple of Jupiter?

  • Big Maggie


    Temple of Jupiter. LOL!

  • seamus

    I would repeat the part ulsters my homeland posted. the part that laymen are not to judge clergymen. our holy father made these laws.

  • Listening to Fr Pat Moloney, I am moved to speak in these terms:-

    Behold! Satan is Alive!

  • Fr Pat moloney is in fact a ex-convict

  • seamus

    I dont believe you john O,Connell. Father Maloney is a good man of God.

  • seamus

    Is your disbelief about him being an ex-convict or Satan?

  • seamus

    he is neither. the devil made him an excon by framing him. Father Maloney is an angel. priests can not be wrong

  • Jimmy Sands

    A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

    Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, “Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.” And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals … Now did the Lord say, “First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.”

  • seamus

    Father Maloney is an angel

    That’s what I’m saying too. He’s the angel called Satan.


    Well done.

  • seamus

    ”’It’s typical of the nutcase priest who plays to an audience and uses his position to promote everything but Jesus Christ.

    Even republican priests are antichristian. What point are you trying to make?””

    John O’Connell, you have started to piss me off. our lady would not allow you to clasify a priest as a nutcase. god bless your soul. if you think of coming to mass make sure you do penance like you have never done it before. our lady is waiting

  • seamus

    our lady would not allow you to clasify a priest as a nutcase.

    That was the milder interpretation of a Pharisee at play during a black mass.

  • yawn

    Shock horror! religious people involved in the troubles lol

    Willie Mc Crea cough.

    Ian Paisley cough.

    Ivan copper cough.


  • yawn

    Ivan copper cough.

    Ivan Cooper, I presume. But not a religious person. But I accept your point.

    That’s why they deserve special comment – their evil is all the greater.

    Ian Paisley gets special mention on my website as the false prophet of the Book of Revelation.

  • RepublicanStones

    John, David Icke called….something about you having his pet lizard !

  • Greagoir O’ Frainclin

    This thread is hilarious,….definitely Father Ted material!

  • RepublicanStones

    Tell him I am a lizard.

    G O’F

    I’m glad you like our sense of humour.

  • Turgon

    At one level the two priests especially Fr. Moloney are rather entertaining: entertaining that is until one realises that one is all but admitting helping terrorists and the other is effectively worshipping murder and violence.

    Of course there are plenty of equally unpleasant “Protestant” prelates.

    What unites both Prod and RC manifestations of this genre (the terrorist supporting clergyman) is the complete ignoring of of the “other side.” Not once did either priest mention the existence of unionists in Northern Ireland: they seem to be non people. The converse of course exists in terrorist supporting prod clergymen, they never acknowledge the existence or right to life of ordinary Roman Catholics.

  • Turgon

    IMHO you’ve just described the root cause of the Troubles and it doesn’t just relate to clergymen.

  • Jimmy Sands

    Moloney is entertaining because he’s obviously not the sharpest tool in the box. Ryan on the other hand comes across as rather creepy. Whatever happened to him anyway?

  • Greagoir O’ Frainclin

    The likes of these priests are abhorrent. Couch material for analysts. They’re ‘creepy’ as Jimmy Sands says, and very creepy indeed!
    I hope the days of when the likes of these half-wits had full reign and say in peoples lives are long gone!

    Seamus, I hope you are taking the piss with your comments!

  • pith

    ‘Ryan on the other hand comes across as rather creepy. Whatever happened to him anyway?’

    He’s in a Supremes tribute act along with Fr Dick Byrne and Fr Cyril Duff.
