McCloskeys say diocese has Ďa lot to learní

The diocese of Limerick has agreed to carry out an investigation into its handling of the Peter McCloskey sexual abuse allegations.

Following a meeting with family of Mr McCloskey, a former altar boy, who died tragically after complaining he had been abused by a priest, the diocese announced the decision.

The diocese admitted it failed to properly inform itself as to Fr Denis Dalyís suitability for ministry.

Fr Daly was accused by Peter McCloskey of abusing him when Fr Daly worked in Caherdavin parish.
