Abuse report from Ireland's Raphoe diocese delayed

Catholic World News - August 30, 2011

The publication of a new report on sexual abuse in the Irish Catholic Church—this time in the Raphoe diocese—has been delayed until October.

The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church (NBSCCC), which had aimed for a September publication date, has reportedly been unable to meet that deadline because the board is still awaiting some information from Church officials. NBSCCC officials declined to comment on the progress of the report, but a spokesman for the Raphoe diocese confirmed that it was not expected for “some time.”
