Abuse victim responds to Bishop’s latest statement


A victim of clerical sex abuse has asked the Bishop of Raphoe to meet with himself, a number of other victims, and the Chief Superintendent in Donegal to discuss the best way to handle allegations made in a TG4 documentary broadcast last week.
Martin Gallagher, who was abused by Eugene Greene in the 1980s, has given a guarded welcome to a statement issued on Friday by Bishop Alan Mc Guckian asking gardai to investigate the allegations.
However, Mr Gallagher asked why such a statement wasn’t issued sooner, and also asked if Bishop Mc Guckian will require any priests against whom there are outstanding allegations to step aside……………


Mr Gallagher has also called on public representatives to get behind him in his campaign for the truth.
He says while there has been a huge response from the public he’s disappointed by the ‘lack’ of support from public representatives:
