Remembering Bishop Eamonn Casey
Bishop Eamonn Casey was one of the most colourful characters in the Church in Ireland. He was universally admired and respected for his work abroad and on behalf of social justice movements. However when the news broke in 1992 that he had fathered a son, Peter with an American woman Annie Murphy, the state was shocked. Speaking with Miriam Gormally from Soul Waves Radion, Michael Kelly from the Irish Catholic, said it was “the beginning of the decline of the Church” He began by talking about how Eamonn Casey was a complex character who was larger than life.
