More on the Ferns Inquiry report

The publication of the Ferns Inquiry report, noted here, has been followed by a number of statements from other diocese containing their own statistics on allegations of, and confirmed cases of, abuse – as well as an announcement of an inquiry focusing on the Dublin diocese, which has acknowleged a settled cases cost of €4.07m. However, despite being available, by mail, from the Department of Health and Children, according to this lengthy RTÉ report – “The report will not be published on the Internet because of legal advice.” A note that is missing from the press release and the guidance notes. The ever-observant Irish Eagle, however, has found someone who didn’t get that particular memo.. the US-based Voice of The Faithful website has the report in PDF form available to download.
