Pope Francis met early Saturday evening for an hour and half with eight Irish survivors of clerical, religious and institutional abuse.
Those present included Mrs. Marie Collins; Rev. Patrick McCafferty, P.P.; Rev. Joe McDonald; Councillor Damian O’Farrell; Paul Jude Redmond; Clodagh Malone; and Bernadette Fahy. One survivor, a victim of Fr. Tony Walsh, preferred to remain anonymous.
