253m Euros still outstanding on Catholic Church abuse compensation promise

The Catholic Church still has to pay the State more than half of the compensation money it promised to give for victims of physical and sexual abuse.

The Joint Oireachtas Public Accounts Committee heard this morning that while €480m had been promised, only €227m had actually been paid out.

Correspondence from the Department of Education showed that a further €253m was outstanding.

The chair of the PAC, Sean Fleming, said the balance should be paid as it was "money due to the State".

I assume we're all shocked that they're holding out on paying the price for their crimes.

2. Yeah. I didn't want to mess with the headline.

It's in the link, though.

5. Also, RTE basically translates as Radio-Television-Ireland.

They're falling down on the job a little with the names, though. Not nearly as many Paddies as you'd expect.

6. Think of them as a giant roach motel

The money checks in. It doesn't check out. Ever. They didn't get all that wealth by parting with it.
