A former teacher at Terenure College has been sentenced to eight years in prison for sexually abusing 23 pupils.

John McClean abused the boys between 1973 and 1990 through his roles as teacher, rugby coach and costume fitter for school plays.

Today FM courts correspondent Frank Greaney joined us with more on this story.

We were also joined by David Kelly, chief sports features writer with the Irish Independent, who himself was a pupil at Terenure College and witnessed the culture of silence around the abuse at the time.
