Reports into failures in foster care in the South East to be published in Kilkenny today

The HSE will publish two reports into the failures of the foster care system in the South East today.

The reports were commissioned after details of the so-called ‘Grace Case’ began to be made public.

The Conal Devine report reveals that a young woman with profound intellectual disabilities – known as ‘Grace’ – suffered significant physical injuries before finally being removed from the home in 2009.

The Resilience Ireland report deals with a further 46 young people who went through the same home between 1993 and 2013.

Both reports will be published at the HSE offices in Lacken in Kilkenny city at 11am today.
