ANGRY DONEGAL TD DEMANDS INQUIRY FOR RAPHOE ABUSE VICTIMS

first_imgTHE Government won’t consider any inquiry into clerical child sex abuse until church-run audits into 24 more dioceses are completed – sparking the anger of a Donegal TD.Deputy Charlie McConalogue says the decision of Children’s Minister Frances Fitzgerald not to order an inquiry into Raphoe and other dioceses now fails victims of abuse.Mrs Fitzgerald has not ruled out a state commission of inquiry in the future. But calling for a State commission now, Deputy McConalogue, the Fianna Fáil spokesman on Children said it was “critical that the voices of the victims, failed by church and State, should be heard to enable them bring closure.”He told the Minister in the Dail: “The public, members of the church and, in particular, victims are tired of the drip-feed of reports….we need a comprehensive way that will deal with it, for once and for all.”However Minister Fitzgerald said the Health Service Executive had been conducting a national audit of all dioceses and religious orders and is expected to give her a report “in the Spring” which she says she will publish.Decision on inquiries would take place then, she said. © 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com ANGRY DONEGAL TD DEMANDS INQUIRY FOR RAPHOE ABUSE VICTIMS was last modified: December 16th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:deputy charlie mcconaloguedonegalDonegal Newsraphoe abuse reportlast_img read more
