In 1995–2002 the emergence of the same problem in the USA led to the view that the Church had attempted to cover up abuse and misconduct, and was not limited to sexual abuse (see Catholic sex abuse cases in the United States).
By the late 2000s the misconduct was recognised as a worldwide scandal.
In the Republic of Ireland, starting in the 1990s, a series of criminal cases and Irish government enquiries established that hundreds of priests had abused thousands of children in previous decades.
Six reports by the former National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church established that six Irish priests had been convicted between 19.
The Church's high stated standards had also led on in part to the Ann Lovett tragedy and the Kerry Babies case in 1984.
A series of television documentaries in the 1990s and 2000s, such as "Suffer the children" (UTV, 1994), Suing the Pope or The Magdalene Sisters, led on to the need for a series of government-sponsored reports and new guidelines within the Church and society to better protect children.
In 1984, a group of seminarians in the 'senior division' of St Patrick's Seminary, Maynooth, expressed their concerns to the senior dean regarding the inappropriate behaviour of Micheál Ledwith, then vice-president of the College, towards younger students.
Ledwith was promoted to President of St Patrick's Seminary despite the allegations.
He subsequently resigned as President in 1994 when allegations of sexual abuse resurfaced.
