A man who was abused by a care worker in an institution in Kilkenny when he was a child was awarded 370,000 damages in the High Court today.

Raymond Noctor, 45, of Leinster Crescent, Dublin Road, Co Carlow sued the Minister for Education, the State, the South Eastern Health Board and St Joseph's Industrial School in Kilkenny.

Liability was admitted for the gross indecency and assault perpetrated against Mr Noctor and the High Court was asked to assess damages only.
