Time the Church put an end to this drip-drip feeding of the truth

Westmeath Independent

For far too long we have been subjected to these drip-drip revelations on clerical sex abuse, as it seemed that the only time that the Catholic hierarchy took action was when the media revealed another shocking case.

Last week we were assured that Ferns would be a watershed, that no longer would there be anything other than full accountability and total transparency.

And then the weekend brings more revelations; one cleric in the Tuam Diocese who was allowed to continue his Ministry despite allegations of rape against him.

Then an elderly Parish Priest in the Elphin Diocese stood aside at the weekend pending the outcome of another investigation.
