Reporting a Concern, Suspicion, Knowledge or Allegation

If you have a Safeguarding concern or suspicion or wish to report knowledge or an allegation of child abuse concerning church personnel, please contact one of our Diocesan Designated Liaison Persons.

Mrs Mary Trench: 097 931 5823
Fr Francis Mitchell: 087 407 0206

The Designated Liaison Person will respond promptly and will liaise with Tusla, An Garda Síochána and the relevant church authorities.

If you have a Safeguarding concern or suspicion or wish to report knowledge or an allegation of child abuse concerning non-church personnel, please contact Tusla and An Garda Síochána. You may of course consult with any of the DLPs (anonymously if you wish) for advice on what procedure to follow.
