Archbishop Martin’s statement on the ‘unity and integrity’ of the Dublin report
Archbishop Diarmuid Martin has constantly stressed that the report of the Commission of Investigation into the Archdiocese of Dublin, based on a representative sample, has its own particular unity and integrity.
Of paramount importance is that survivors and victims of abuse, and their families, who will be most affected by the report’s publication, will get the support they need at this difficult time.
The High Court has given detailed directions, in recent days, on its publication and it is hoped it will be published without delay. It is regrettable that several months after the completion of the report, selected sections of it, or a draft thereof have been published; however, all involved should be mindful of those most in need of help.
