DUBLIN — A shocking new report has identified hundreds of victims of child sex abuse by Irish Catholic priests, officials said Tuesday, two months after a landmark study found “endemic” mistreatment.
A government-appointed commission of investigation headed by a judge has been probing allegations of abuse by priests in the archdiocese of Dublin — the country’s biggest — since March 2006.
Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin has warned that the report — presented to Justice Minister Dermot Ahern on Tuesday — would “shock us all.” [...]
A spokeswoman for the archdiocese said the Church authorities had identified between 400 and 450 people that allege they were abused by one of 152 Dublin priests since 1940.
“I would like to stress that that is a very conservative estimate and is likely to rise,” she told AFP.
