Child Safeguarding and Protection

Child Safeguarding and Protection

In the Parish of St Gabriel, Safeguarding is all the things we do to ensure that children are protected from harm. Everyone who ministers in the parish is a representative of the church and must observe safeguarding practices and guidelines. Good safeguarding practice is integral to ministry. 

There are two trained child protection officers in the parish. They operate in this capacity on a voluntary basis. They are Fiona O’ Byrne and Tom O’Reilly and their contact details are on display at the church entrances.

They can also be contacted through the parish office.

Both are available to discuss Child Protection concerns with you in a confidential manner.

The Dublin Diocese has a Child Safeguarding and Protection Website that can be viewed by clicking:
