From RTE news…

Report on former AIT lecturer expected

RTÉ News has learned that a report into the controversy surrounding the lecturer Niall McElwee has been completed.Dr McElwee resigned his post at Athlone Institute of Technology last July after it emerged he had been convicted of attempted indecent assault on two young women while on a health board-funded trip to Amsterdam.

Dr McElwee was head of the child and youth care learning centre at AIT and the institute said it was never informed of the prosecution.
Despite the prosecution he continued to work at AIT until last July when relatives of the women informed the media in Ireland. He then resigned.

The Minister for Children, Brendan Smith, requested that the Health Service Executive investigate the case.

RTÉ News understands that the report carried out by consultant Conal Devine will be sent to the HSE in the next few days.

The report will now have to be legally vetted but it is understood the role of HSE staff and gardaí who were aware of the Amsterdam incident will be at the centre of its findings.

I’ll have more later.
