Bishop Magee steps aside over Cloyne controversy - The Irish Times - Sat, Mar 07, 2009
Bishop John Magee of Cloyne has been replaced in his diocesan duties following criticism over his handling of child abuse cases in the diocese.


A statement issued by the Irish Bishops’ Conference in Maynooth today said Pope Benedict had appointed the Archbishop of Cashel and Emly, Dr Dermot Clifford, to assume the powers and duties of the Bishop of Cloyne.


However, Bishop Magee will retain the title of Bishop of Cloyne.


The statement said Bishop Magee had made a formal request to Pope Benedict on February 4th last to appoint an apostolic administrator to carry out “the ordinary governance” of the Diocese of Cloyne.
this is frustrating, will he just go he doens't deserve the title,hopefully some group of school reps and parents has made enough noise to achieve this
