‘The denial must end’

One in Four

Peter McCloskey claimed he was sexually abused by a Limerick priest in the early 1980s. His mother Mary believes Church denial of the truth cost her son his life.

Why did Peter McCloskey die?

Family and supporters demand the veil of secrecy be lifted by the Catholic Church, convinced it will unlock the truth.

Peter had claimed he was abused by Clare-born priest Fr Denis Daly in the 1980s. Fr Daly died in 1987.

At the centre of the storm now is the Bishop of Limerick, Dr Donal Murray, whose diocesan legal team imposed strict confidentiality as part of the mediation process Peter entered into on March 30 this year.
