The former Bishop of Galway, Dr Eamonn Casey, is not to be prosecuted following investigation by gardaí into allegations made against him by a Limerick-born woman.

The allegations of alleged sexual abuse are believed to date back to the time when he was serving as a priest in Limerick.

In a statement, the Catholic Communications Office said the Director of Public Prosecutions had decided not to proceed with the case against Dr Casey.
