Just got this letter in through the door. A referral was first sent in 2011. It was then picked up by @tusla in 2015. A retrospective investigation began in 2018 & in 2020 they have concluded their investigation. Sitting here balling my fucking eyes out. I can’t believe it pic.twitter.com/mXTTIOsCy0

Mick Finnegan (37) from Crumlin, in south inner city Dublin, was 12 when he joined the voluntary paramedic organisation St John Ambulance in the 1990s. He was about 14 when he was abused by a senior figure in the ambulance service…
Finnegan grew up in Crumlin, an area he says was “destroyed with drugs” during the 1980s and 1990s. He was the eldest of four children and says his mother was delighted when he became involved with the organisation as he was steering clear of crime.
The grooming started shortly after he joined the Old Kilmainham division of St John Ambulance as a youth member or “cadet”. [More at link below]
