Shocking, Disturbing Indictment

Derry Journal

Friday 28th October 2005

The Ferns Report published this week is surely one of the most shocking and disturbing documents ever to have come into the public domain in this country.

While there was a general awareness of the problem of sexual abuse by clerical figures in the Diocese of Ferns - largely because of the personal courage of a number of people who were subjects of that abuse - the scale and extent of the depravity revealed is almost beyond comprehension.

What is most depressing is that those who raped and abused the children of Ferns were figures who held responsible positions in society.
