As part of an ongoing series of meetings between survivors of sexual abuse by clergy and Catholic Church representatives, Cardinal Seán Brady, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, today held meetings with survivors of abuse and with groups representing survivors.
 
The following meetings took place separately in Cardinal Brady's home in Armagh: Mr John Kelly, Mr Patrick Walsh and Ms Marie Seo of Irish SOCA; Mrs Marie and Mr Raymond Collin; Mr Michael O'Brien from Right to Peace and Mr Christopher Heaphy of Right of Place.
 
A statement said: 'The primary purpose of the meetings was for the Church representatives to continue to listen to the views of survivors of abuse in the aftermath of the publication of the Pastoral Letter of the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, to the Catholics of Ireland. 

Also in attendance at today's meetings were Bishop John McAreavey, Bishop of Dromore, Ms Lucy McCaffrey who is facilitating the ongoing contact between survivors of abuse and the Irish Bishops' Conference, and Father Timothy Bartlett, Assistant to Cardinal Brady.
 
The pastoral letter was published on 20 March. For more information see:  www.catholicbishops.ie
