Priest is sacked after admitting 18-year affair

A senior priest has been sacked by the Catholic church after admitting an 18-year affair with a married woman. Monsignor Joseph Creegan, whose overnight stays with a divorcee were revealed by the Sunday Mail last week, admitted the relationship with a SECOND woman to his bishop.

His secret mistress, who has been married more than 25 years, complained to the church after she was dumped by Creegan.

Bishop Vincent Logan confronted 66-year-old Creegan, who admitted the affair. The bishop then apologised for the “hurt caused to people by Monsignor Creegan’s conduct over the years”.

“I betrayed my husband, he betrayed his Church”

Monsignor Joseph Creegan’s mistress has finally admitted their affair – which lasted more than 18 years – after being cruelly betrayed by him.

She claims the priest left her to buy a home with Anne Ogden, 48, who he counselled during her marriage split.

Heartbroken at being dumped for the younger woman, she confessed their sins of the flesh to his bishop on Friday – and demanded he be stripped of his ministry.

As well as admitting their affair to Bishop Vincent Logan, the mum-ofone has also told her husband. He has stuck by her and the pair are trying to rebuild their marriage.

In a statement to the Sunday Mail, Bishop Logan said he had received “irrefutable proof” from the mistress of his monsignor’s secret trysts.
