The Dublin Archdiocese Commission of Investigation was established to report on the handling by Church and State authorities of allegations or complaints of child sexual abuse made against clergy operating in the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin and the response to such cases. The Commission examined a representative sample of allegations and suspicions of child sexual abuse against clerics over the period 1975 to 2004.
The Commission examined cases involving 46 priests (a representative sample of 102 within remit) and identified 320 people who had complained between 1975 and 2004. Between 2004 and the end of the Commission in 2009, a further 130 complaints were made against priests in the Dublin Archdiocese.
The Commission’s Report was published soon after the Ryan Report in 2009.
