A local solicitors’ office is looking into claims of sexual abuse at St Mary’s Cathedral in Kilkenny.
Smithwick Solicitors are urging anyone who may have either suffered abuse or have information about abuse there between 1970 and ’74 to contact them.
According to an article in the Kilkenny People, Joe Fitzpatrick from the Smithwick’s office says it was not a member of the clergy and a number of people have already come forward.
However, the article states they’re looking to hear from others that they believe are out there.
A spokesperson for the Diocese has told KCLR today that they will not be making a comment on the issue.
