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