THE Taoiseach has urged anyone who has any information about cases of child sex abuse should go to the Gardai.
"I don't want to comment on the personal circumstances of any family. I've read the reports no more than anybody else about this. Clearly the issue of paedophilia is something of such sensitivity and importance that if information about these things is known, it should be made known to the authorities at once," he said.
The Taoiseach was speaking at the final press conference of Fine Gael's campaign on the two referendums taking place this Friday, October 4th - one to to abolish or retain the Seanad and a second to set up a Court of Appeals. Speaking about the government's campaign to abolish the Seanad, Mr Kenny insisted that if the electorate voted to keep the Upper House, it will not be reformed. "This is a straight question - do you want to keep it or do you want to abolish it. In my view it's not required anymore," he said.
