Damien Tiernan, of RTE, reports:
“Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan has said the Commission of Investigation into Waterford paedophile Bill Kenneally could begin within weeks.
“The former sports coach and accountant is currently serving a sentence for having abused teenage boys in the 1980s in Waterford.
“The Commission of Investigation is expected to look into the garda handling of complaints; what they did or did not know, possibly as far back as the 1960s and 1970s; matters surrounding the former South Eastern Health Board and the Catholic Church in Waterford.
“The commission is headed by retired judge Barry Hickson.”
