This is where you seem to miss the entire point it is the works that are the issue and not the bishop however it would appear that if the proponent of the works refuses to accept the views of the majority of his parishioners, the majority of the people in Cobh, the National Trust, a leading architectural heritage organisation and the statutory planning appeals bord then it is reasonable to consider that in fact he is wasting copious amounts of funds.
How much has been spent to date on
In this case, it is rumoured that the bishop of Cloyne has been charged something in the region of 50,000 Euro for the barrister’s fee alone.
The solicitor’ fees are likely to be something in the region of another 60,000 Euro since Ronan Jermyn and Daly have been retained on almost a daily basis to draft replies to the FOSCC for the bishop.
McCutcheon and Mulcahy have been working on this project for over a year. Even a conservative estimation of their fees must leave the bishop with a bill of soemthing around 100,000 Euro.
It is difficult to say what was paid to the great Professor O’Neill for hie various doodlings but in the returns made to the Registrar of Companies by the St Colman’s Cathedral Restoration Fund there is an item of something in the region of 34,000 Euro which may have been a down payment.
All told,Bishop McGhee’s folley must have generasted a bill of something in the region of 250,000 Euro.
The curious thing about this bill is that it was incurred by the TRUSTEES of the St. Colman’s Cathedral.
During the course of the Oral Hearing, it was mentioned that the bill would be picked up be another entity: The St. Colman’s Cathedral Restoration Fund which is a public company with charitable status and therefore is non tax paying.
The question is: is a company such as the St Colman’s Cathedral Restoration Fund (which collected money for the RESTORATION of the Cathedral) entitled to pay out funds to cover debts incurred by another independent company, The Trustees of St. Colman’s Cathedral?
An another question; is the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cloyne, which is a registered public charity, entitled to dispurse funds to pay debts incurred by a another independent group just like the Trustees of St. Colman’s Cathedral?
Put another way: why are the Trustees of St. Colman’s Cathedral not paying the debts incurred by themselves as a result of the planning debacle?
Should this matter be submitted to the Coorporate Enforcement Agency so taht they can investigate the various ins and outs of teh matter?
Does anybody have any ideas on this subject?
