  • Dublin Catholic Diocesan Report Shows ‘Number of Errors’

    Following up on the breaking story of a panel report which alleges the Catholic Church in Ireland covered up reports of child abuse in Ireland by clergy, a RTÉ report alleges issues over reports on abusers by the Granada Institute.

    From RTÉ:

    In one case of a priest named as Fr Terentius there were a number of errors in the report forwarded by the Institute.

    It states that in the Granada report that the priest had not admitted to any allegations when in fact he had admitted to several incidents involving six young boys.

    The Commission states that the report from the Granada Institute was ‘seriously deficient’.

    The Granada report also states that two boys were 17 years of age at the time of abuse when according to the Commission they were 13 or 14 years of age.

    Another claim in the report from Granada about Fr Terentius states that he is undergoing therapy on an individual basis

    The Commission questions this as well as a number of other claims in the report.
