PRIEST IN TUAM ARCHDIOCESE SETTLES RAPE CLAIM
A priest - and former minister in the Tuam Archdiocese - who was accused of raping a pregnant woman has settled the case out of court.

According to today's Irish Independent, a five-figure sum was paid to settle a High Court civil action.

The rape allegations were withdrawn as part of the settlement agreement.

The priest will now undergo a specialist assessment before a decision will be made regarding his future ministry.
