Four people who attended an industrial school in Galway have complained of suffering sexual abuse, it emerged tonight.

St Joseph’s Industrial School in Clifden was run by the Sisters of Mercy until 1983 but no nun was involved in the alleged abuse.

The Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse heard that two sisters who attended the school had complained that they had been taken from their beds and forces to engage in inappropriate touching by an unknown woman.
