Pope accepts resignation of Irish bishop who delayed reporting abuse (BBC)

Catholic Culture Monday, 26 March 2018
Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of Bishop John McAreavey of Dromore, Ireland, who was under fire for his failure to report a priest for sexual abuse. Bishop McAreavey had submitted his resignation after it emerged that he had apparently been aware of abuse by the late Father Malachy Finnegan as early as 1994, but did not inform police until 2006, when the accused priest was dead. Bishop Philip Boyce, the retired head of the Raphoe diocese, was named administrator of the Dromore diocese, to serve until a new bishop is appointed.
