It was discovered at Davis College in Mallow

An investigation has been launched into the posting of a so-called sexual assault list in the toilets of a school in Cork.

The list - which appeared on the wall of the male toilets at Davis College in Mallow - contained a number of girls names.

Above the list read 'the girl with the most ticks will be sexually assaulted'.

The issue came to light when a concerned parent contacted Redfm.

In a statement Davis College says it is taking the matter very seriously and that the list was removed as soon as they were made aware of it.

It goes on to say the safety and well being of their students is their top priority and all students named on the list have been spoken to.

An internal review is underway and if those responsible for the list are identified they will be disciplined.
