New Ross Echo

Welcoming the recommendations set out in the Ferns Report for dealing with issues arising in the area of child protection, several councillors at the monthly Wexford Corporation meeting questioned whether the Department of Health will put in place the funding necessary to see that these are enacted.

“There has been an appalling shadow over the Diocese of Ferns for too many years,” said Cllr. Joe Ryan, “but what we now need to do is ensure that the recommendations concerning child protection are acted upon.

“These recommend-ations should not just be applied to the Catholic Church, they also need to be applied to all the other organisations operating within areas where children are concerned.
