Fr Zeta (deceased)

One in Four

In March 1996, the diocese received an anonymous letter accusing a priest in a named parish of committing sexual offences against schoolboys in the local primary school in the late 1980s.

The letter did not identify the priest, other than to say that he was still in the named parish.

Fr William Cosgrave, the diocesan delegate, subsequently said he believed the letter referred to a priest in the parish who had been chaplain and confessor to the pupils of the local primary school for many years.
