Paedophile priest abused in Dundalk

The Anglo-Celt

Paedophile priest Fr Sean Fortune spent a year living outside Dundalk where, the Ferns Inquiry reveals, he abused at least one young boy.

The rogue priest had been sent to Mount Oliver after complaints had been made about his behaviour with boys in Belfast.

Concerns about the priest's fitness had been raised even before his ordination, with a psychiatrist deeming him unfit to be ordained and surfaced again when he was posted in Belfast. After his ordination Fr Fortune in Holy Rosary Parish in South Belfast served for less than a year in 1979.
