The Bishop of Kerry, Dr Bill Murphy, has revealed that the diocese has paid out more than €250,000 in settlement of three cases where allegations of child sex abuse were made against priests.

In a statement to RTÉ News last night, Dr Murphy said there had been allegations of child sex abuse made against 11 priests in the diocese over the past 50 years.

In at least some of those cases, more than one complaint was made against individual priests.
