Kid's party in sex offenders' hostel
A schoolgirl had a 13th birthday party at a sex offenders’ hostel which houses some of Northern Ireland’s most notorious perverts.
The manager of the Belfast hostel who allowed the teen’s party to take place and who allowed another nine-year-old child to regularly come into the perverts’ haven was sacked for gross misconduct.
Details about the birthday party and other shocking incidents at Dismas House hostel in south Belfast emerged at a tribunal case brought by the ex-manager Joe Hamill.
