The statement includes this excerpt: Following publication of the Dublin Archdiocese report, the Garda Síochána Inspectorate was requested to carry out a comprehensive review of Garda arrangements for dealing with child sex abuse. While that work has been completed, it has been agreed with the Chief Inspector Kathleen O’Toole, that prior to publication of their report, they would be given a chance to review it in the light of the findings of the Cloyne Report. This review is expected to take only a matter of weeks. This addendum is the result of the Inspectorate’s review of the Cloyne Report.
