Victims advised to stay away

Limerick Post

By Mary Earls
ANYONE who has suffered clerical abuse is being warned to stay away from Bishop Donal Murray or his diocese by the brother of deceased former alter-boy, Peter McCloskey.

Calling for the bishop to resign his post, Joseph McCloskey said that his brother’s cry for help resulted in his death.

Mr McCloskey told the Limerick Post that the church’s silence on the matter is also being "exacerbated by reports of another allegation of abuse in Limerick by the same priest, which wasn’t brought into the public domain”.

37-year-old Caherdavin man, Peter McCloskey, was found dead on April 1, just two days after mediation talks with Catholic Church representatives about his allegations of clerical sexual abuse.
