The police have set up a dedicated team to investigate the circumstances of the child abuse carried out by the late paedophile priest, Fr Malachy Finegan.

The County Down parish priest, who also taught at St Colman’s College in Newry, has been accused of a litany of sexual and physical abuse against young boys.

The PSNI said although he died in 2002 and “can no longer be held accountable in a court”, lessons may be learnt from how authorities dealt with him.

They asked victims to contact the team.
