Donegal victims of sexual abuse to sue school caretaker Kerry
Lawyer claims he’s suing abuser Michael Ferry as well as the school owners
The lawyer representing two boys who claim to have been sexually abused by their school caretaker has “received instructions to initiate civil proceedings in the case,” according to The Post.ie. The lawyer, Patrick J Sweeney, claims that he will be suing Patrick Ferry, the alleged abuser, as well at the owners of the school, Ardscoil Mhuire, that hired him.
He’s claiming that both the school owners and the health board knew of Ferry’s status as a serial rapists, yet they for some reason continued to hire him and expose him to children. Due to an agreement between the Concos and the Garda, the police force, all Irish language school employees must be checked out before hiring. Thus, Ferry should have never been hired in the first place.
Upon learning that the school continued to hire such a man, Minister for Justice Alan Shatter ordered an explanation as to how exactly Ferry continued to be able to have access and abuse the children.
Chairman of Concos Gearóid Brosnacháin was reported saying, “This agreement, as I understand it, applied to every single person who worked at a school, including bus driver, caretaker, teacher and anyone else who had unsupervised access to children at any time." Ferry’s access was unsupervised, and he has just recently been given an 18 year sentence for the rape and assault of four boys at the school between 1990-2005. and before that he was convicted in 2002 of assaulting a children twenty-something years prior, according to the Post.
The operator of the school, Gweedore-based Irish college Coláiste Cholmcille, was asked to step down from Concos, which is a representative body for Irish language school, which Ardscoil Mhuire prides itself in being.
