We must make sure that what has happened to me never happens again

Irish Independent

WHEN I read the Ferns Report yesterday the thing I felt more than anything else was sadness. I know what I went through when the 'Suing the Pope' documentary came out on TV.

Every time this stuff emerges victims of clerical abuse feel it.

They may feel a certain vindication that the report has been published but the fact of the matter is that it will bring back an awful lot of memories for them.

I think another door has closed but I don't know if it will bring closure. I would really love to see the Church taking some meaningful steps to address their problems.

Everybody I have talked to believes they are still flustering, they're still not dealing with the problem directly.
