A woman who claims she was sexually abused by a school chaplain over a three year period has launched a High Court action for damages.

The 28-year-old woman alleges the abuse began when she was a Transition Year student.

“He exploited her continually and regularly”, Jack Fitzgerald SC, for the woman, said.

“His attitude to the claim and what she says happened is that none of it ever happened,” counsel said.

The woman has sued the priest as well as the school in the South East and the local bishop.
