Ireland to Publish New Report on Catholic Abuse

DUBLIN (AP) -- A judge has cleared the way for Ireland to publish a new report into decades of Catholic Church coverups of child abuse, this time in the county of Cork.
Ireland already has published findings of three previous investigations into Catholic child abuse in Dublin, the county of Wexford, and a nationwide network of residential schools.
Ireland's government asked the High Court to determine whether the entire contents of the latest report can be published now. On Friday, the judge ruled that only one out of 27 chapters should be censored because it would jeopardize the prosecution of one accused priest.
State-appointed investigators have documented the cases of 19 abusive priests in the Cork diocese of Cloyne. The bishop there, John Magee, resigned last year over the scandal.
