"Father Maurice Dillane, a curate in the Woodford-Looscaun parish in east Galway (Ireland), quit the Clonfert diocese after he was confronted by his bishop. The 73-year-old priest is believed to have first met the 31-year-old mother of his child, a Dublin-based teacher, while serving in the nearby parish of Mullagh and Killoran. The baby was born late last year.
