Lesbian sex abuse investigation at Kylemore Abbey

Irish Independent

A LESBIAN sex abuse investigation is underway at one of the country's most prestigious girls' schools.

The investigation, being carried out by the Health Service Executive (HSE) West, has centred on alleged inappropriate sexual activity at Kylemore Abbey secondary school for girls in Connemara, Co Galway.

The Irish Independent understands the investigation has centred on alleged sexual interference with schoolgirls by at least one nun.

HSE investigators were called in by the Benedictine Nuns after an audit of all instances alleging sexual abuse was undertaken in the wake of the Ferns report.

The trawl uncovered alleged sexual abuse, solely involving females, at the picturesque Kylemore Abbey school run by the Benedictine Nuns in the heart of Connemara.
