Second diocese now faced with scandal even worse than Ferns

Irish Independent

A CHILD abuse timebomb is ticking away in another Catholic archdiocese.

Allegations have been recorded against a shocking total of 27 priests who have served in the archdiocese of Tuam.

The Ferns scandal involved 21 priests.

Astonishingly, eight clerics have left the priesthood in Tuam after a "reasonable suspicion" that child abuse had taken place was established.
