A CO Down GAA club has urged any victims of abuse by paedophile priest Malachy Finnegan to come forward.

Clonduff GAC in Hilltown said anyone affected by the actions of Finnegan, a former president of the club, should “bring this to the attention of the PSNI”.

It comes as it was revealed that parents at four Co Down primary schools have said they do not want the Bishop of Dromore, Dr John McAreavey to officiate at their children’s confirmation after he said Requiem Mass for Finnegan.
