Joint statement from McCloskey family and Bishop

Limerick Post

THE brother of deceased former alter-boy, Peter McCloskey, has said Bishop Donal Murray’s admission that Peter was telling the truth and that the Diocese of Limerick failed to protect him is "a step in the right direction”.

Joseph McCloskey and his mother Mary met with Bishop Donal Murray last Sunday in an effort "to resolve and understand what led to Peter’s death”.

And Mr McCloskey said that he hopes that his brother’s tragic death and the subsequent media coverage "will assist in the better handling of any future cases”.
