Six-Figure Damages for Man Abused by Paedophile Priest at Newry School

A man abused for years by a paedophile priest at a Co Down school is to receive a six-figure sum in damages, the High Court heard today.

The pay-out to Tony Gribben forms part of a settlement reached in his lawsuit over the historic sexual and physical assaults he suffered at the hands of the late Fr Malachy Finnegan.

A personal apology will also be issued on behalf of the leader of the Catholic Church in Ireland under the terms of agreement.
