Eamon Casey in Kerry

Two elderly Kerry priests when asked whom they would consider was the finest bishop in the diocese, during their time of ministry, immediately and spontaneously said 'Eamon Casey'.

Both men recalled that before Casey came to Kerry curates were treated like vassals by their parish priests.

One man said: "It was terrible. We lived in bed-sit style accommodation and the pp could be as tyranical as he wished. Eamon Casey came and so too did freedom."
