Report on abuse in 2nd Irish diocese will not appear until May

Catholic World News - April 20, 2011

A report on the handling of sex-abuse allegations in Ireland's Cloyne diocese will not be made public until the 2nd week of May, because of disagreements over which portions of the report should be withheld.

The report on Cloyne, commissioned by the government after complaints that led to the resignation of Bishop John Magee last year, was prepared under the direction of Judge Yvonne Murphy, who also supervised an investigation in the Dublin archdiocese.

Some portions of the Cloyne report will be withheld from publication, because they relate to the case of a priest who currently faces criminal charges. The delay in publication is due to disputes over these sections.
