Statement by Brendan Howlin on delayed Kenneally Inquiry

03 January 2018

Today Deputy Brendan Howlin met some of the victims of convicted paedophile Bill Kenneally.

The victims have expressed their serious concern and dismay that the Commission of Inquiry into the handling of complaints and other issues surrounding the abuse of boys by Kenneally, which was to be up and running last year, is in effect now stalled.

The former Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald at a meeting with the victims, which was attended by Deputy Howlin last year, heard their concerns first hand and subsequently brought proposals to Government to establish a Commission of Inquiry.

Deputy Howlin undertook today to again raise this issue with the Minister for Justice, and in Dáil Éireann.
