BISHOP of Kerry Ray Browne has distanced the diocese from bizarre comments made in a parish newsletter that appear to brand President Michael D Higgins as 'the king of the Irish fairies'.

Massgoers in Castlegregory were shocked to read the comments in Sunday's 'I Spy' column of the local newsletter, where the author appeared to mock the president's historic State visit to Britain this week.

Castlegregory parish priest Fr Michael Hussey did not return calls from The Kerryman on Tuesday.
