Archbishop Diarmuid Martin pays tribute to the late Christine Buckley

“Christine Buckley was a woman of courage. Her courage in coming forward, telling her story and advocating for change played a major role in exposing problems in child protection in the Church and State.

Christine contributed enormously to a sea change in the Church’s attitude to survivors of abuse. In her meetings with me personally, she was always honest and open and I appreciated her insights.
Her life’s work contributed to a vast improvement in child protection in the Church in Dublin and in wider Irish society.

To her husband, children, family and many, many friends, I extend my deepest sympathy. May she rest in peace”

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin.
