Fr Sigma (deceased)

One in Four

Breda complained of sexual abuse perpetrated on her by Fr Sigma in Monageer and Knock for a four-year period, commencing when she was eight years old.

She telephoned Fr Tommy Brennan, diocesan secretary, in September 1996, and told him she had been sexually abused by Fr Sigma when she was a young girl, and that she was in counselling.

Fr Brennan wrote to Bishop Comiskey in December 1997 outlining the conversation with her. Breda told the inquiry there were lots of rumours surrounding Fr Sigma throughout the parish, mainly concerning girls.
