BishopAccountability.org, which maintains an Internet database of names, articles, and documents associated with the clerical abuse crisis, has released the names of over five dozen Irish priests who worked in the United States and were accused of clerical abuse.

“Bishops [in Ireland], just like bishops here, have been moving accused priests around, even though they know they are dangerous,’’ said Terence McKiernan, codirector of BishopAccountability.org. “Unfortunately the places where they put them include our own backyard. So the Irish crisis, basically, has become our crisis, too.’’
