Good Heavens! An Irish American priest who turned the air blue with a series of foul-mouthed outbursts is now being sued by outraged teaching colleagues.
Father Michael Reilly, headmaster of St Joseph by-the-Sea high school in New York, is said to have repeatedly used the word “f**k” and racially abused a black colleague, according to a 12 page lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court.
The cleric is also alleged to have called women "tw*ts" and “bitches”.
In the suit, filed by three teachers, Father Reilly is accused of, “unleashing a constant stream of rude, crude and inappropriate remarks including saying the word f**k in almost every sentence in some form.”
An Archdiocese spokesman called the lawsuit “absurd”.
It may or may not be absurd but Father Reilly also has low rankings on website “Rate my Teacher,” with students describing him as “stubborn” and “biased.”
