Abuse survivor 'totally depressed' over Archbishop meeting

Abuse survivor 'totally depressed' over Archbishop meeting

Groups representing victims of clerical abuse are accusing the Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin of "rowing back in his support for them".

It comes following a meeting in Dublin where Archbishop Martin briefed the abuse survivors on the summit between the Pope and Irish bishops in Rome earlier this week.

The victims said the Archbishop has changed his stance after having "his wings clipped", but Diarmuid Martin is rejecting the accusations.

Abuse survivor Marie Collins said she is "totally depressed" over today's meeting.
