Church in Limerick out of step

One in Four

Today questions must be asked about Limerick Diocese’s handling of the Peter McCloskey case.

No one can deny that Peter was a troubled, even a tortured soul. But that is not surprising considering he was sexually abused by a priest at the age of 10.

But to add insult to injury, when Peter tried to lay the ghosts of his past to rest by embarking on a quest for truth, Limerick Diocese offered little or no help.

In fact he had to travel at his own expense to Australia to unearth the murky past of his serial abuser.
