Allegations victim of Domhnall Ó Lubhlaí supports calls for Garda review

One of the people who has come forward with allegations of sexual abuse against Domhnall Ó Lubhlaí says he supports calls for the Gardai to review their files on the case.

Mr. Ó Lubhlaí died last month aged 84. He was the founder of Coláiste na bhFiann, which has run Irish language summer courses in the Gaeltacht since 1968.

He had been a teacher at Coláiste Chilian in Clondalkin and had also been an employee of Gael Linn.

Since his death a number of people have alleged publicly that he sexually attacked and abused them when they were teenage boys in the 1960s and 1970s.

One of those Gearóid Ó Conchubhair says that he would support a re-examining of the case.

"I would support anything that's going to bring out the truth" he said.

"But for me it's not really about that. For me it's just about two things: one is to try and see can this help me to heal, and secondly if I can heal or if I can in any way encourage others who were affected" he added.
