first_imgA TD has called for an investigation into claims that children were beaten and handcuffed by classmates during a trip to County Donegal.Parents claim the incidents happened during a school trip to Annagry last month.Thirty-nine pupils at Griffeen Valley Educate Together School in Lucan, west Dublin, went on the organised five-day trip to Donegal from May 20. According to one parent, the children slept in one house while three accompanying teachers were in an adjoining property.Derek Keating, the local Fine Gael TD in Dublin, has confirmed that he was contacted by “a number of distressed parents”.He now has written on their behalf to Education Minister Ruairi Quinn and Justice Minister Alan Shatter, and plans to raise questions in the Dail this week.“I confirm I have been contacted by a number of distressed parents resulting from events involving children who are reported to have been allegedly assaulted and abused while in Donegal in late May on a school-organised trip,” he said. “Following meetings with parents, I have concluded that an independent investigation is needed to ease the minds of children attending this wonderful school. This is a very serious issue and not just a schoolyard bullying incident.”Garda sources confirmed that reports of alleged abuse were made to Lucan garda station. TD WANTS INVESTIGATION INTO ALLEGATIONS CHILDREN WERE BEATEN IN DONEGAL GAELTACHT was last modified: June 24th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:TD WANTS INVESTIGATION INTO ALLEGATIONS CHILDREN WERE BEATEN IN DONEGAL GAELTACHTlast_img
