Minister McHugh welcomes plan to complete Christian Brothers Contribution to Redress Fund

The Department of Education and Skills has been formally notified by the Congregation of Christian Brothers of its plan for the completion of the Congregation’s voluntary pledge to the Residential Institutions Statutory Fund.

The Congregation has confirmed to the Department that it will complete the pledge through a series of monthly cash transfers between September and December of this year.

The total to be transferred will amount to €6.8 million.

Minister for Education and Skills Joe Mc Hugh T.D. said: “I welcome the clear confirmation from the Christian Brothers of its plan to complete its pledge. I particularly welcome the fact that this plan has now been put into operation, with the first tranche of €1.8 million having been transferred this week.

This confirmation provides both funding and much needed clarity for Caranua to allow it to continue its supports for survivors.
