Fr Kevin and Fr Mossie to focus on confession

Fr Kevin McNamara: TV documentary

TWO Kerry priests are to feature in a new television documentary about confessions, sin and redemption.

Fr Kevin McNamara, formerly of Killarney parish and now PP in Moyvane, and Fr Mossie Brick, who is PP in Castleisland, will contribute to the programme titled The Confessors which will be screened this Monday on RTÉ One at 9.35pm.

They are among a number of Irish priests who discuss some of the sins they have heard that have stayed with them. They also discuss why they have stayed with the church despite the problems it has encountered.

Through the prism of the confession box, the priests will open up about what it’s like to hear the sins of others.

The programme makers ask them why they became priests, why they remain priests, their reflections on the church and its problems and how they are managing during the Covid-19 pandemic with online services replacing congregations.

The Confessors is produced by Atom Films which was the production company behind the Older Than Ireland documentary and the highly rated Abbeyfealegood which focused on the lives and times of the many barbers and hairdressers in Abbeyfeale.
