CWN Editor's Note: The Diocese of Derry is a defendant in a lawsuit stemming from a terrorist bombing that killed nine people in 1972. A priest of the Derry diocese, Father James Chesney was suspected of organizing the bombing, as a key figure in the Irish Republic Army. Although Father Chesney (who died in 1980) was never charged with a crime, Church officials arranged to send him to a new assignment in another diocese.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
