The mother of a 22-year-old who was "seduced" by a priest twice her age is planning to take legal action against him.

Evelyn Gilbert, 54, wants an interdict taken out against priest Roddy MacNeil, who has been suspended by the Catholic church amid allegations he had relationships with a string of women.

Her daughter Jennifer, 22, claims she was seduced by the priest, a family friend, and is being plagued by text messages from him. Now her mother is threatening legal action to keep Father MacNeil away from her daughter.
