At the turn of the millennium in Eire, there was a case of child sexual abuse by a member of Parliament that had uncanny parallels two decades later with the Greville Janner case in England.
He has been identified in 2015 through detective work by Shame of Ireland... They unmasked him by following clues in newspaper articles in which he was not named, but various details were described...
Their work leaves no doubt that the child abuser was Patrick Sarsfield Donegan, but this is perhaps the first time he has been named. He was a TD, but is now dead. [A Teachta Dála (TD) is a member of Dáil Éireann, the lower house of the Oireachtas, the Irish Parliament, equivalent to an MP.]
