Another Irish bishop calls on Bishop Magee to account for Cloyne leadership

Catholic World News - August 12, 2011

Another Irish prelate has called upon Bishop John Magee, who resigned under pressure last year, to give a public accounting for his handling of sex-abuse complaints in the Cloyne diocese.

Bishop Christopher Jones of Elphin said that Bishop Magee had a duty as a pastor to answer questions about his leadership, in light of the damaging report issued by a committee investigating abuse in the diocese.

Bishop Magee has not made a public appearance in Ireland since the release of the Cloyne report. He is generally believed to be staying abroad, probably in the US.
