Last April, RTÉ’s Investigations Unit revealed the full extent of the story of a young woman in foster care now known by the pseudonym ‘Grace’. ‘Grace’, who has profound intellectual disabilities, was left in a foster home in Waterford for almost 20 years despite a succession of sexual abuse allegations.

RTÉ’s Investigations Unit has now uncovered another case with similarities to the Waterford story where children were also left in the care of a foster family – in the West of Ireland – for several years despite serious allegations of sexual abuse against one family member.

However, unlike the historical nature of the Waterford story, the foster family at the centre of this case has, until recently, continued to provide some support services.
