Clerical abuse inquiries in every diocese - Tánaiste


The Tánaiste has reiterated that every diocese in the country should be investigated for clerical sex abuse.

Mary Harney told the Dáil that inquiries similar to the one in Ferns will be carried out across Ireland.

She said that an examination of current practices, to deal with allegations of abuse, must take place with the aim of ensuring that the systems now in place in the diocese of Ferns are also in operation in other dioceses.
