Description:
On 19 March 2002, BBC television broadcast a documentary in the 'Correspondent' series, entitled Suing the Pope, which dealt with incidents of clerical child sex abuse in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Ferns. Following the programme, a number of those who had been identified on it as victims of abuse, as well as some others, pressed publicly for the establishment of a public inquiry. On 4 April 2002, the Minister for Health and Children met with a number of victims in Kilkenny and at that meeting expressed his approval for the principle of an inquiry He indicated that he saw merit in inviting a lawyer to conduct a preliminary exercise to identify the central issues for the inquiry and to make recommendations as to its form and structure. On 10 April 2002, the Government appointed me to carry out this exercise.
