He said there was no doubt that the boys had been targeted by O'Sullivan with a view to abusing them.He also took into account the young age of the victims and the abuse of trust involved.Detective Garda Gerard Hickey told Mary Rose Gearty SC, prosecuting, the investigation began when one of the victims made a complaint to gardai in 2011.This lead to a second victim coming forward and making very similar complaints in 2013.He added: “Our view is what’s driven the timing is the evidence that’s going to come out with this inquiry.“I think it will be clear that there were significant failings on behalf of the council and that whole issue will be reinforced.” The solicitor represents eight victims taking part in the inquiry who were abused at Cambridge House and Knowl View, but believes there are “many more”, adding: “One of the things the inquiry will need to be do is get a handle on just how pervasive this abuse was and how many victims and perpetrators were involved.” Rochdale Borough Council declined to comment on Mr Scorer’s comments.He said on leaving the army O'Sullivan had built up some business interests including a guest house, restaurant and licensed premises but much of this was lost during the recession.He said O'Sullivan's admissions of guilt and acknowledgement of these events had “sundered” his relationships.
