Gsoc Find No Evidence of Garda Offences in Cloyne Child Sex Abuse Investigation

Irish Examiner
July 23, 2015

A GSOC report into the garda handling of allegations of child sex abuse in the Diocese of Cloyne has found no evidence of offences by members of the force.

The investigation revealed some possible explanations as to why formal investigations were not conducted by the Gardai into serious allegations of sexual abuse.

The report suggests some failures on the part of the Gardai, but says no offences appear to have been committed and no disciplinary proceedings are being recommended.

GSOC says there have been substantial recommendations by the Garda Inspectorate in relation to the investigation of child sexual abuse, and if these are followed, they should avoid a repeat of the circumstances.
