The brother of a victim of institutional abuse will lead a protest during Easter Sunday Mass at Dublin's Pro-Cathedral this morning.

Kevin Flanagan, whose brother Michael was abused at Artane Industrial School in Dubllin in the 1950s, is calling for an independent international investigation into clerical abuse in Ireland.

Michael O'Brien, a survivor of Ferryhouse Industrial School in Clonmel, wants every bishop and abuse survivor to tell their stories in the open.

"They must come out and say it now," Mr O'Brien said.

"Anyone that was abused, I appeal to them: Come out and tell your story now."
