It was a charity set up to respond to Dublin’s homeless crises and to provide food and shelter to the most vulnerable.

But now the Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH) group is in chaos with allegations of sexual assault and rape against founder Anthony Flynn, who died by suicide on August 18 as gardai investigated the claims of two men.

Since then, two more homeless men have come forward to make complaints to police about attacks they claim they were subjected to, while threats have been levelled at the alleged victims and the former chairman of the charity.

Nicola Tallant talks to Sunday World Deputy editor Niall Donald about the fallout of the horrific rape claims which have divided a community and brought into question the vetting processes around those who volunteer to work with the homeless.
