Further to yesterday’s story in The Irish Times, by Patsy McGarry, about an alleged sexual assault against a boy in King’s Hospital, Palmerstown, Dublin…


Mr McGarry reports:

“The school contacted lawyers on Friday for legal opinion on dealing with the matter, and was advised to report it to Tusla and the gardaí immediately.”

“However, this was not done until late on Tuesday afternoon of this week. By this stage, The Irish Times had contacted the school with questions about the matter.”

It has also emerged the boy’s family was told last Friday that the school had been in contact with Tusla.”

“This was understood by the family to mean the alleged incident had been reported to Tusla. However, it is understood the school had put a hypothetical case to the agency, seeking an opinion on what was the best course of action in an apparently construed situation.”

School delayed reporting alleged sexual assault for four days (Irish Times)
