Ministers met with Grace case inquiry to voice unhappiness with the pace of work and delays
Former minister says he is ‘horrified’ with the continuous delays of the inquiry.
The Grace case concerns a young woman with profound intellectual disabilities who was left in a foster home in the Waterford area for almost 20 years despite a succession of sexual and physical abuse allegations.
The latest six month extension means the final report will not be complete until September 2024, over five years beyond its original deadline.
