Girls school facing lesbian abuse investigation


17-May-2006 writer

One of Ireland’s most prestigious girls school is under investigation for lesbian sex abuse, according to reports.

The Health Service Executive (HSE) West is looking into allegations of inappropriate sexual activity at Kylemore Abbey school in County Galway, in the West of Ireland.

The claims date back 20 years at the top tourist attraction, which is run by Benedictine Nuns, the Irish Independent reports.

None of the current employees or students are believed to be involved.

The paper claims that a church investigation forwarded stories of alleged sex abuse to the Vatican in the 1980s, but no charges were brought.
