“I wish to make the following points in relation to the article which appeared in the Sunday World dated 1 Dec 2013.

    1. I have visited the House of Prayer only on six occasions in 2013 not every Saturday as the article stated.
    2. My going to the House of Prayer is not a reason for any dispute in my family.
    3. I have never made any donations to the House of Prayer in Achill as the article seemed eager to imply.
    4. The untruthful and vile headline used for the article referred to me as a “vulnerable and brainwashed pensioner”, I am nothing of the kind as my family doctor has verified. (Doctor’s certificate supplied to House of Prayer.)”

“House of Prayer turned our mum into a fanatic….”

By JIM GALLAGHER. Sunday World, Dec 1st, 2013

A BROTHER and sister have revealed how the cult House of Prayer on Achill Island has torn their family apart.

Ted Loughman and his sister Katherine claim their mother has refused to talk to them in over two years because they are opposed to Christina Gallagher’s organisation. They say their mum Mary (73), was once a happy woman devoted to her family who would go on holiday every year with her three children.

But now the Tipperary pensioner, who regularly travels to Achill, walks past them in the street.

Ted (50), also suspects his mother has handed over a lot of money to the self-styled visionary, who leads a millionaire’s lifestyle with a collection of stunning mansions, all uncovered by the Sunday World over the past five years.

When Mary’s husband, also Ted, died she was left comfortably off with some land, a hardware shop which has since been sold and two holiday villas in Alicante, Spain. “Dad never owed anyone anything. He did not leave her poor,” said Ted. “She was very vulnerable at the time and the perfect target for Gallagher. She sucked her in. We don’t know what has happened to the houses in Spain, but they are locked up and not being used.“

Ted said things began to change when their dad died in November 2002. “Before that, mother had only gone to the House of Prayer a few times. Her neighbour was always asking her to go, but my dad did not trust it.“

Katherine said: “Mum was at me and I went once, but I remember telling her ‘never ask me again.” I did not think Gallagher was genuine. I remember sitting outside and seeing these bodyguards who all had soft-top cars. “I said to mum, ‘what is this? They are not following any religion, look at the cars they are driving’. She told me to ‘shush’. A man came over and told me to put away my phone as no photographs were allowed. I was about to take a picture, but they said they would confiscate my phone and put me out.“

Katherine remembered that Gallagher came outside for only a few seconds and made a little wave before disappearing. “She did not even say anything. I said to mum that Christina was supposed to pray with everyone, but mum said she was too busy. Mum did not talk to me for three weeks after that. I said, ‘don’t ask me again, I will drive you up, but I am not going in’.
Opposed

“She is giving money all right. She was buying rosary beads and I told her to buy them in Knock, not there. They did not mean anything to me.” The siblings said two of their mum’s brothers were totally opposed to the House of Prayer, but a sister was also a follower. “Mum won’t talk to her brothers. You just can’t talk to her about it,” said Katherine.

“Mum has not spoken to me in three years. I was coming out of the filling station one morning and she was walking past. I said, ‘hello mother’, and she walked right past me.“

Ted said local farmers told him that at one stage his mother was thinking of building a House of Prayer on her land, but nothing came of it.
“My mum is fanatical. It is pure bull***t. You just don’t talk to her about Achill,” said Ted, who sells milking machines and is well known in Tipperary for raising €88,000 for local charities with sponsored cycle rides.

Mum-of-three Katherine added: “She always came away with us every summer. Mum used to be great fun.“
Revelations

Ted said the bus left Tipperary for Achill every Saturday morning at 5.30am and his mother would be on it. Sometimes there were just 13 other passengers, whereas before the Sunday World revelations about Gallagher’s mansions in Malahide, City West Dublin, Ballina, Newport and the UK, the bus was packed. Just last month we revealed how the daughter of another of Gallagher’s obsessed fans said the House of Prayer had destroyed her family as well. She said her mother had lost half her body weight with constant fasting and would say up to 100 rosaries a day.

Gallagher claims to get regular messages about the end of the world from the Virgin Mary and Jesus. Anyone who contributes to her cause or attends the House of Prayer will be saved, she claims. Millions of euro have been pumped into her coffers and she has built five Houses of Prayer in America since opening the Achill HQ 20 years ago.

  2. That is so true Martina, doctors are not qualified to diagnose symptoms of brainwashing/undue influence. The best they can do is recommend a therapist or psychologist if, and only when, the patient is honest enough to discuss the effects from cultic indoctrination. They do nothing about the cause only try to have the damage assessed and, where possible, treated.

    Doctors rely on what patients tell them and, unfortunately, very few understand undue influence. Treatment is ineffective as they do not get to or understand the root cause.

They are in it for the money and self glory.

    —————————–

    Angie,
    Are you quoting the Sunday World or do you have actual evidence of your opening attack on CG? What evidence do you have that she ‘faked’ the stigmata? People have given testimony as have their doctors. All this is irrelevant to the thread which is about the Sunday World telling lies about Mrs Loughman exposed by her statement which appears on the HoP website. I think dialogue ireland is totally hypocritical to continually delete from a thread legitimate comment of the opposed opinion and leave on this sort of stuff.

    Proxy Server
    A proxy or proxy server is basically another computer which serves as a hub through which internet requests are processed. By connecting through one of these servers, your computer sends your requests to the proxy server which then processes your request and returns what you were wanting. In this way it serves as an intermediary between your home machine and the rest of the computers on the internet. Proxies are used for a number of reasons such as to filter web content, to go around restrictions such as parental blocks, to screen downloads and uploads and to provide anonymity when surfing the internet.

    Why Use a Proxy?

    If you are wanting to surf the web anonymously then proxies can provide you with a means to hide your home IP address from the rest of the world. By connecting to the internet through proxies, the home IP address of your machine will not be shown but rather the IP of the proxy server will be shown. This can provide you with more privacy then if you were simply connecting directly to the internet. There are number of proxies that can provide you with service. You can find a list of these simply by typing “Proxy List” into any search engine. There are some proxies which are free and some which charge money, the choice is up to you but we have found that the paid proxies are more reliable, faster and more secure.

  9. It is a dreadful thing to call another person a LIAR, or to be so bitter and full of hate that this awful sin….hated since the dawn of creation rolls of Angie’s tongue like a prayer..
    But Angie does not see it that way….so full of Dialogueireland’s hatred of all things Catholic, and all things spiritual, and so desperately trusting in the filth that is The Sunday World.
    I do believe that Dialogueireland must take responsibility for Angie’s defamatory remarks….and hence for Mrs Loughman the best option is to silence this depravity by using quickly a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer like G.Black&Son Dublin.
    I do know that Dialogueireland are terrified about the use of legal action…which would not ever be able to claim monetary compensation, because this little hate-filled cesspool has no assets and lives on begging for donations from the Irish people…..I think society would be well served if this pathetic site got shut down.

  28. By the way, I am not a member of Dialogue, just a member of the public with a point of view. Where IS the truth in a cult since all action is taken for a purpose, to dupe and make a fortune out of gullible people. H of P is an example of this. The comment I am making is that YOU, the H of P have used Mrs. Loughman to your advantage. I will tell you now that you repeating the above goes nowhere accept to give examples of the lies that are evident in the H of P.

    You are using her as an example to hide what you do. The above Mrs. Loughman is not typical and it gives a false impression. If she was Gallagher would not be the owner of luxury homes; she would not be living the life surrounded by luxury. It does not mean that the emotional manipulation has discontinued. Why would the H of P make a huge deal of Mrs. Loughman’s story on their blog? Why don’t they have other individuals who HAVE donated, who visit very frequently; instead they want to give the impression that they do not put pressure on for donations, that they do not have individuals who visit every week who are totally convinced of Gallagher’s messages, brainwashed into thinking their spiritual safety is dependent on buying a picture of ‘our lady’ costing, is it 200 or 250 Euro?

    You lie by omission and using her to give a false impression of the H of P.
