Clerical child abuse survivors Marie Collins and Andrew Madden are to receive public awards later today.

They will receive the Humbert Summer School Outstanding Merit award in Ballina, Co Mayo.

Announcing the awards, the school director John Cooney said the pair had proved themselves to be inspirational figures who had spoken courageously in public about their childhood ordeals.

He also said they were to the forefront in calling for change in Irish society and the Catholic Church.
