The Archbishop of Tuam, Michael Neary, has revealed allegations of child sexual abuse have been made against 19 priests in the Archdiocese since 1940.

Four priests were charged with criminal offences, three of whom were convicted of what are described as 'offences within the realm of child sexual abuse'.

Eight priests have stood aside from the ministry in the Archdiocese. Six of the priests are now dead.
