A Freedom of Information request by a victim of abuser Bill Kenneally has uncovered a separate Tusla file dating back to the 1980’s, it’s been claimed.
Jason Clancy, who is himself a victim of Kenneally, told Eamon Keane on ‘Deise Today’ that the file has been seen by a person known to him.
He also said that this person, who received the freedom of information request, had received counselling from Tusla.
According to Jason Clancy, the victim was shown a file dedicated to Bill Kenneally, the majority of which had been heavily redacted.
“We now know that there is a file in Tusla at this moment in time and it is a 20-page plus page document regarding Bill Kenneally. That file is actually dated in the 80’s and it is a significant file,” he said.
He added that he was angry, shocked and disappointed that the file had only emerged now as a result of an FOI request.
“The real anger we have is that we’ve been fighting and fighting for this….and there is a file, a 20-page document sitting on a filing cabinet in Tusla at this moment in time.”
He described the discovery as scandalous.
“Only for we forced this inquiry through, that file would never have seen the light of day and people in Waterford would have never known the true the extent of what was done.”
Jason Clancy has also appealed for anyone else with information on Bill Kenneally to come forward before the Hickson Commission,which is due to start in the next few weeks, begins.
