There is to be a full investigation into child sex abuse by Catholic clergy in the biggest diocese in the country, the Archdiocese of Dublin.

Circuit Court Judge Yvonne Murphy is to head up a statutory inquiry into how senior churchmen in Dublin - including Cardinal Desmond Connell - handled abuse allegations over more than three decades.

The inquiry is to select a sample of complaints or allegations between 1975 and 2004 to examine.
