Bishop Comiskey threatened to rape me

Irish Independent

DISGRACED Bishop Dr Brendan Comiskey threatened to rape an Irish Independent journalist.

The menacing threat was made in the former Bishop of Ferns' house in Wexford during an interview with JustineMcCarthy.

During the run-up to the divorce referendum he said he would rape her if she wrote about him in a certain way.

He was "extremely drunk" at the time of the pre-arranged interview which took place 11 years ago.
