The man, who has sought to preserve his anonymity, told the Irish Independent that a faculty member at St. Patrick’s seminary in Maynooth made homosexual overtures. He eventually left the seminary and married, but testified that his experience left him “severely shaken” and troubled by depression.

The possibility of policy involvement and formal charges comes at a time when the Irish news media are reporting multiple complaints of homosexual misconduct at the Maynooth seminary.
