A public inquiry has been setup into the alleged cover-up of pedophile Bill Kenneally.
The sports coach from Waterford abused a number of young boys for over 30 years before he was jailed in 2016 for his sexual abuse crimes.
Speaking to Eamon victim Jason Clancy who is “very happy” with the terms of reference of the commission said:
“We have made great strides forward, yesterday in the cabinet meeting they signed off on a memorandum for a commission of investigation to go ahead, so we believe next week it will go to the Oireachtas where the commission will be formally setup and in the next two weeks Judge Barry Hickson, whose going to be chairing the investigation can start their work.”
Kenneally’s victims are alleging collusion by the church, Gardaí, (South Eastern Health Board) now Tusla and a number of others.
“We feel its important to go back to the 1970’s as there was number of incidents in the 1970’s in relation to Bill Kenneally, we are aware that allegations are made.”
According to the victims the original terms of reference just dealt with the period of 1984 to 1988-89 which looked at their time.
