National disgrace

• Over the past six years I have read small articles in Irish national newspapers on priests, sisters and Christian Brothers who have been found not guilty in courts of law having been charged with sexual offences against minors. I wonder if your paper has any suggestions as to which government bureaucracy or mass-media office these people go to to get back their reputations?

With regards to the mass media's coverage on members of the clergy who have been publicly charged with sex offences against minors – history will record this as a national disgrace.
