The support group for victims of sexual abuse, One in Four, has condemned any threats of violence against priests in the wake of the Ferns Inquiry.

This comes amid newspaper reports today that a parish priest was placed under Garda protection in Co Wexford, following verbal assaults on him during mass in the parish of Ballindaggin.

It comes as anger mounts over the abuse revelations contained in the Ferns report.

But One in Four director, Colm O'Gorman says people must not attempt to take justice into their own hands.

"It's important that people remain objective in their understandable outrage" he said.
