Victims of sex beast Bill Kenneally are willing to meet the paedo’s priest uncle, who quit his role at a local primary school after they called for his dismissal.
Monsignor John Shine, 91, was chairperson of the Holy Cross School in Tramore, Co Waterford, but victims of his abuser nephew said his position was “no longer tenable” after claims he knew about the abuse and did nothing.
He resigned from the school on Saturday, days after they wrote to Pope Francis saying he “played a key role in the shielding of Bill Kenneally after the Monsignor became aware of his nephew’s paedophile crimes as early back as 1987”.
Victim Colin Power told the Irish Daily Mirror: “I am willing to meet him, because I would welcome him disclosing the information he has. We need to know the truth. We need to know who knew what was being done to us and turned a blind eye.”
