Tusla apologises for five-year delay in responding to abuse report

Tusla apologises for five-year delay in responding to abuse report


Tusla, the kid and household company, has apologised over an “inexcusable” delay of greater than 5 years in responding to a lady’s report of childhood sexual abuse.

Sinéad Lay (34), from Monasterevin, Co Kildare, was 14 when a neighbour, Fergus Delaney, who had groomed her, started to allegedly sexually assault her in 2000. Delaney of Allendale Lawns, Baltinglass, Co Wicklow, is now in his 50s.

In late 2012 a referral was made to social staff over the previous sexual abuse. The referral outlined Delaney was the daddy of younger kids, volunteered as a GAA underage coach and labored as a bus driver.

Social staff interviewed Ms Lay in April 2013 however had been unable to rearrange a gathering with Delaney, and the case was left unallocated, with no social employee, for a big interval afterwards.

An inner Tusla report right into a criticism from Ms Lay discovered there had been no evaluate of her case for a number of years, and it was left unallocated because of “ongoing employees shortages”.

5 years after she had reported the abuse, social staff interviewed Ms Lay once more in early 2018, earlier than figuring out her allegations to be “based” and credible in December 2018.

The report into her criticism discovered she had obtained no updates on the progress of her case over a lot of the 5 years.
