The story unfolds in our docu-drama 'The Skinny on the Schism', and in Part 2 we hear that the priest Fr. Robert O'Keeffe begins to take court cases against his bishop and curates.
The town of Callan is split between loyalties to the priest and bishop, while rioting and fighting break out in the town.
