Child Abuse in the Irish Catholic Church—Back Story 1

BY BIANCA TUMA

I have begun research on one of, if not the biggest stories to erupt in Ireland. For almost 100 years, a shocking abuse scandal has lingered in the Catholic Church—the abuse of children. Finally, in the past ten years, the scandal has met its end, literally. I have mostly found myself looking at the current stories in the Irish newspapers, such as the Irish Independent and the Irish Times. My foot finds itself in the crack of the door while listening and conversing with professors about how to find information and where to look. Derek and I begin to search for the names of well-known survivors and are lucky to find the resources needed to succeed in an interview with a victim.
