Statement by Archbishop Diarmuid Martin on today’s High Court ruling

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin said this evening that he is pleased that the High Court has ruled that the Report of the Commission of Investigation into the Archdiocese of Dublin can be published. It had been his preference that the report could be published in its entirety, but he understands the complex issues that had to be considered.

Archbishop Martin said he hoped when the report is in the public domain, survivors of abuse will be able to access adequate support services at what is certain to be a difficult time for them and their families.
