Christina Gallagher, the anti Robin Hood.
Right, so it should come as a TERRIBLE shock this fine morning if I reveal Christina Gallagher is now under investigation from the Office of the inland Revenue. And that several of her followers, namely elderly folk, have been talked into handing over considerable sized donations to fund the 'humble' housewife and her mansion living ways. One poor elderly woman who told the Sunday Times she could barely heat her home had been pressed to part with almost 100,000 euros, having been hounded by Father McGinnity, Gallagher's tame priest. This poor old lady and her husband genuinely believed that the apocalypse was imminent and unless 2 milllion was raised to fund a secret project-asked for by Mary, mother of god, countless souls would would be lost.
She was just one of the few mentioned in the papers.
Gallagher won't be happy about this negative attention. This charming fraudster has built up a VERY lucrative business using the tried and tested blueprints of fear, religious devotion, promised salvation. It takes a lot to convince the devoted they are being conned. Some people will never be swayed. However Our Lady Queen of Peace House of Prayer, the original power base Gallagher operates from has had its charitable tax status removed by the Revenue and the catholic Church has been VERY vocal in distancing themselves from the debacle, including banning their priests from saying mass at the house.
Speculating papers also means Gallagher has taken a body blow this weekend. She can recover from it of course, and as long as the weak and the gullible are promised healing and special favours from Mary mother of god, in return for financial aid, the world of this huckster will still turn a profit. But I truly hope this marks the beginning of the end for that woman.
People who frighten old folk into parting with their life savings ought to be whipped and then blunderbussed with rock salt.
Christina Gallagher, I am against you.
