More Arrests Expected Following Sexual Abuse Investigations

Gardaí investigating, what has been described by some as being the most degenerate paedophile ring yet uncovered in the history of the Irish State, are now expected to make further arrests in the weeks ahead and possibly outside the Mid West region.

We reported on March 5th last that six women and five men had been arrested as part of this investigation, before being released without charge, with files being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The eleven individuals arrested had been questioned over a 24 hour period; detained under section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act, at Garda Stations in Tipperary, Limerick, Clare, and Cork and were understood to be members of an extended family, ranging age-wise from 20 to 70 years.

Following information understood to have been gleaned by Gardaí in the past over less than a one year period, from some 20 alleged young victims; same have lead investigators to believe that a paedophile ring may have operated beyond the Mid West region of Ireland. We also understand that some of the young victims have claimed that they were groomed from a young age and raped by known family members.
