Background:

The Government of Ireland had ordered a series of investigation into allegations of widespread molestation of children and youth within the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland. As of mid-2011, five Catholic Bishops in the country have resigned after accusations of child abuse in their dioceses. The latest study investigated the Diocese of Cloyne which covers County Cork. It was issued on 2011-JUL-13, and found evidence of Church cover ups from 1996 to 2009. The report suggested that children in Catholic parishes across the entire country may be in danger of continuing molestation. Twenty three dioceses remain to be investigated.
