An interview on the programme PléScéal on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta on Thursday revealed that an Irish gaeltacht allegedly let students have their phones while some students watched porn.

Various parents said that students Coláiste na Rinne in the Waterford, had no limits on phone use and that they were able to access the internet as much as they wanted.

Jo O’Connor said in the interview that some of the boys in attendance were watching porn on their phones.

“The girls told me that the boys were watching porn on the phones ... and one of the girls asked her mother what porn was ... The mother of that girl phoned me to tell me, that girl had never heard of it before then. The girls told me that the boys played them pornographic sound clips on their phones.”

“I was very disappointed ... porn is terrible at any age, but especially for children, 13 years of age or so.

"The children attending the college are aged from Sixth Class to Second Year in secondary school, they’re very young, and that they were able to access porn in an Irish summer college, that’s terrible. "
