A comment on the Irish Independent articles concerning myself: Oct.10th: Tony Flannery
Sorry to disappoint any journalist who may be reading this, but I am not commenting on the substance of these articles. My negotiations with the CDF are ongoing, and I have agreed not to comment on that at present.
But twice in the articles by Garry O’Sullivan I was described as ‘ageing’ and once as ‘elderly’! (I am assuming he also wrote the editorial piece). Having read the articles I went to my golf club and asked for three shots back on my handicap. They laughed at me, and said they should be taking shots off instead.
How patronising of Garry. And does he not realise he is rapidly ‘ageing’ himself. Is there not a law against this somewhere? I’m told it’s called ‘ageism’. I wonder if I sued the Indo would I get one hundred grand. (Must talk to Robert Dore) That would be lovely. It would ensure a bit of comfort for this ‘ageing cleric’ for the small few years that they consider I have left!
