THE Catholic Church is ashamed of its failures to protect children, All-Ireland Primate Sean Brady said last night.

Archbishop Brady said he was deeply shocked and saddened by the findings of the inquiry into child abuse in the Diocese of Ferns conducted by Mr Justice Frank Murphy.

He said the membership of a newAbuse Tracker Board for Child Protection within the Church would be announced shortly.

"The revelations make for very uncomfortable reading," he said.

"The pages retelling the pain experienced by those who have suffered, are especially heartbreaking.

"I apologise to all those people who have suffered lasting hurt at the hands of abusers in the Church.
