Walsh chapter ruling next week

The High Court will deal with whether a chapter from the Murphy Report dealing with the activities of paedophile priest Tony Walsh should be published next week after he was sentenced on Monday to 12 years in jail on sex abuse charges.

Chapters 19 and 20 of the report were withheld when it was published on November 26, 2009, pending the outcome of proceedings involving Walsh and another man. Proceedings in the other case are ongoing.

Yesterday, Mr Justice Paul Gilligan said the court would not deal with the publication of the chapter from the report into abuse in the Dublin arch-diocese until next Wednesday.
