A report on how the Church and State authorities handled child sex abuse allegations against clerics in the Dublin archdiocese is expected to be made public with edits of references to two persons throughout the text.
Their identification might prejudice criminal proceedings said Irish Justice Paul Gilligan, according to the Irish Times.
Last month Mr Justice Gilligan ruled the report could be published with the exception of Chapter 19 and all references to a named person in that chapter.
Yesterday the judge made a similar order deleting all references to a named man, and that man's brother, in Chapter 20 and in other parts of the report.
The Independent.ie apparently quotes from the report, by the Commission set up to investigate how the Dublin Archdiocese dealt with sex abuse scandals from 1975 to 2004, saying the document will find there was little or no concern for the welfare of the abused children or other children who might come into contact with deviant and even paedophile priests.
While the Commission will find there was no evidence of a paedophile ring operating among priests in the Dublin Archdiocese, there were distressing connections between more than 40 priests serving in parishes and religious orders in the diocese.
Some boys who were abused by one priest were later passed on to their friends and abused again, The Independent said.
Four Catholic archbishops of Dublin who preceded current archbishop Dr Diarmuid Martin were aware of complaints against priests for sexually abusing children, a practice that went on for over 35 years, the news report adds.
Despite the trenchant criticism of the Catholic Church in Dublin since the era of Archbishop John Charles McQuaid, the Commission, which was headed by High Court judge Yvonne Murphy, will thank Archbishop Martin, and his legal team, who gave unrestricted access to its files.
The report is also expected to be critical of the State and some gardai for not intervening much earlier to challenge the authority and power of the Church.
