Cover-up, connivance1, concealment2 were found in the Catholic Church and in its relationship with the authorities who should have been investigating allegations of child abuse. The church was seen as being above the law, putting its own reputation before the protection of children, and being allowed to continue unchecked by a state fearful of scandal. The report covering 30 years in the Diocese of Dublin found that four archbishops did not hand over information on abuses. One priest has admitted sexually abusing more than a hundred children. Some of those abused by priests gave their reactions to the report.

"This report is a shocking indictment3 on the Catholic Church in Dublin. Its publication may bring closure for some victims. It may also serve as the only justice some victims have received. But its publication, if not acted upon, will have been a waste of opportunity to raise standards of child protection in this country."

"The institution came before the welfare of the children of this country, and all their denials are now proved to be false."

The Irish government has promised to bring pedophile priests to justice for these shocking crimes.

"As I read it, I felt a growing sense of revulsion and anger. Revulsion at the horrible evil acts committed against young children. Anger at how those children were then dealt with and how often abusers were left free to abuse. "

The current archbishop of Dublin responded for the Catholic Church. "I offer to each and every survivor4 my apology, my sorrow, and my shame for what happened. But I am aware that no words of apology would ever be sufficient. "

The Irish police say that they are deeply sorry for failing to protect children. The reputation of the Catholic Church in Ireland has been severely5 shaken. Sue Sarvil, ITV News.
