HSE 'did not follow guidelines' after school caretaker convicted of indecent assault

The HSE did not follow proper guidelines in the case of a Donegal caretaker who continued working at a Gaeltacht school after being convicted of indecent assault, an internal review has found.

Michael Ferry (aged 58) from Carrick Boyle, Gweedore, was convicted in 2002 of indecently assaulting a boy at a former school, where he worked.

He then continued in his job as a caretaker at Ard Scoil Mhuire, which was used as an Irish-language college.

One of his victims said that the findings of the report are "horrific", and he may seek justice in European courts.
