There is confusion over whether a parish priest in Tyrone has been cleared after showing gay porn to a room full of First Communicant parents.

The Irish Catholic Church called an inquiry into the County Tyrone priest, Father Martin McVeigh, who displayed indecent images during a primary school presentation in March “inconclusive."

Originally, they called the priest cleared but later amended that after parents protested.

The Archdiocese of Armagh sent representatives to meet with parents from the town of Pomeroy in Co. Tyrone to talk about the incident.  Another meeting is planned to further investigate the issue.  The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) have confirmed that no crime was committed during the presentation.

Fr Martin McVeigh is currently on a leave of absence after requesting the break of his own volition.

While making a First Communion presentation at St Mary's Primary School on March 26, Fr. McVeigh put a memory stick into his laptop that displayed 16 gay pornographic images, according to the Belfast Telegraph.

Some 30 parents were present, as was one child. Fr. McVeigh claims he has no idea how the images came to be on the portable drive and parents say he quickly took it out of the laptop after the incident occurred, according to the BBC.
