A 61-year-old Catholic priest has been jailed for seven years for systematically sexually abusing a boy in Co Wicklow over a five year period beginning in 2007 when the boy was 12.

Denis Nolan, with an address at Carrigmore, Tinahely, pleaded guilty to sexual assault at that address between 1 January and 30 June 2007.

He also pleaded guilty to a total of ten counts of defilement of a child between 1 July 2007 and 25 August 2011.

Unfortunately these creeps are prone to seek positions where they have access to their intended targets. Whether its a priest, teacher, cop or coach.

And there are those who believe that the abused victims are just being 'anti-Catholic'.

I don’t think it is Catholic bashing to question some of the policies of the Church which created the the environment which allowed the homosexual/pedophile priest scandal to become so widespread to begin with. The Church is not always right.

Gee, I don't know, do you? Once you have finished your investigation, come back with your results. In the meantime, this guy is going to prison. Once you get your numbers of Protestants, then come back and tell us that this loser shouldn't go to prison because X number of Prots abused kids as well, so it is all right.

I do not have the answer to how many Protestant ministers have been caught sexually molesting minors. But I would be willing to wager the number is no where near the number of Catholic priests caught doing it.

I don’t either, but to act like that justifies someone like this is really pathetic. Defend the edifice at all costs! Imprison them, full extent of the law.
