Victims of paedophile Bill Kenneally want Fianna Fail, the Catholic church and Gardai to be investigated over the abuse

Bill Kenneally pleaded guilty to ten sample charges of abusing ten boys
Victims of paedophile Bill Kenneally have described the outcome of the case taken against him as a form of “window dressing”.

Six have said they now believe senior gardai, members of Fianna Fail, the Catholic Church and staff at the South Eastern Health Board were told about the abuse but failed to act.

They are now pushing for a Commission of Investigation into who knew and “turned a blind eye”.

Belfast-based human rights lawyer Darragh Mackin is representing them.

In the past week Mr Mackin has written to Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald to bring the case to her attention.

Victim Jason Clancy said: “I don’t know what’s more hurtful, the abuse or the fact that people in authority knew that I was being abused and
did nothing.

“They could have taken me out of my misery at any stage but they chose not to.”  (more...)
