Jimmy C Catholic Priest clears his chest (317* d) RE: Catholic Priest clears his chest 15 Oct 05


Merseybeat,

Maybe there were only 12 protestants in the Gardai because only 12 applied for the job, it may be as simple as that.
IN addition to what Don asked I ask how many catholics worked in the shipyards, how many in the aircraft factory, how many in the Ormeau bakery. I know the shipyards did employ catholics, so also did the aircraft factory but not in numbers that reflect the demographics of the region. I know that none worked in the that said "NO CATHOLICS NEED APPLY".
I do feel that the nazi part of the statement by Father Reid was unnecessary and ill timed, but to be fair he also said that the unionists had no choice and that the catholics would probably have done the same if the situation was reversed. Please read the entire statement before selecting portions of it just to make a point.
