THE priest whose alleged sexual abuse has been linked to the tragic death of a former Limerick altar boy was at the centre of a second complaint in another Limerick parish, the Limerick Diocesan office confirmed last night.

A spokesperson said two priests were alerted in the 1980s of an improper approach made by Fr Denis Daly, the priest at the centre of the Peter McCloskey allegations. The priests did nothing about the complaint, which concerned a young man living in the Janesboro area, beyond telling the boy’s father he should contact the gardaí.
