The Scouting Ireland homepage, yesterday.
In this morning’s Irish Times, Jack Power reports:
Aisling Kelly, chair of the organisation’s new board, told a private meeting of senior volunteers on Monday night a picture was emerging of “extensive, prolonged, and at times organised child sexual abuse” from the organisation’s past.
“It happened within all levels within the organisation, all strata within the organisation, all counties. It is a situation where people knew of and protected alleged abusers. It’s a situation where people allowed abusers to move from group to group,” Ms Kelly said.
