ABBEY APOL­OGY

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment & Analysis -

Fur­ther to your story ( JC, Au­gust 5) re­port­ing Fr Ed­die Conway’s com­ments of 24 July con­cern­ing Ir­ish Jus­tice Min­is­ter Alan Shat­ter, it should be noted that the fol­low­ing apol­ogy was is­sued at Masses on the fol­low­ing Sun­day July 31 by my­self, as Prior of the Black Abbey:

“I was deeply sad­dened and ashamed by some ref­er­ences in the ser­mon you heard last Sun­day, and the hurt I know it has caused to many of you. What was said does not rep­re­sent my views or those of the Ir­ish Do­mini­can Prov­ince. As Prior of this Do­mini­can com­mu­nity I apol­o­gise for the of­fence caused. I ask your par­don.” Fr Louis Hughes OP Do­mini­can Com­mu­nity, Black Abbey, Kilkenny, Ire­land
