Following the government announcement to further ease the COVID restrictions as from today (Friday 22 October) the following measures will be implemented:
With the good news that our churches are open, safeguarding checks continue to take place to ensure and maintain safe environment, as well as the yearly Parish Safeguarding Audits which are being sent out to the Parish Priest and Parish Safeguarding reps in the next few weeks. As we welcome people back, we offer our continued reassurance of our commitment to safeguarding in the Parish and in the Diocese.
Safeguarding is Everybody's Responsibility
To safeguard those most vulnerable, we all have a part to play. If we have a concern for the safety / wellbeing of anybody, we must report this to the appropriate authority, whether that be, Gardai, HSE, Tusla, GP or Church Authority. The Diocesean Designated Liaison persons are not only available to you for church related concerns, but can offer you advice on how to report any concerns in the wider context. Please feel free to contact Cleo Yates or Fr. Alan O’Leary at
An ‘Adult Safeguarding Policy, Safeguarding Adults at Risk of Abuse ‘ has been written and implemented for all the Dioceses in Munster.
‘Inspired by gospel values, the commitment of Pope Francis, and in compliance with law we will strive to ensure the participation and welfare of all adults who may be vulnerable in the life of the Church. We are committed to fostering a safeguarding culture characterised by empowerment, collaboration and zero tolerance of abuse.’
