Brother Tom Forde likened gay people to ‘zombies’ and said that “the only way to deal with the monsters is to stab or shoot them in the brain” during the mass in Kilkenny.

Following a complaint from the public, the homily is now being investigated by An Garda Síochana.

"Furthermore, when harm is done an apology is to be given."

"I welcome, therefore, the statement of the Capuchin Order expressing their deep regret and their strong reaffirmation of their welcome of all people,” Bishop Farrell added.

Colm O Gorman, the executive director for Amnesty Ireland, condemned the comments as “unadulterated homophobia”.
