Freed con­victed groomer has yet to con­tact gar­daí

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS - By Deb­bie McCann

THE where­abouts of a for­mer RTÉ sports pro­ducer con­victed of child sex of­fences in the UK are un­known, fol­low­ing his re­lease from prison this week af­ter serv­ing just ten months of his 18-month sen­tence.

Kieran Creaven will have to keep gar­daí in­formed of his where­abouts for ten years fol­low­ing his re­lease from cus­tody in the UK.

He for­merly lived with his wife in Dublin, but it is un­der­stood he has not yet no­ti­fied gar­daí of a new ad­dress.

If he had ar­rived back in Ire­land last Tues­day fol­low­ing his re­lease on Mon­day, he would be obliged to no­tify gar­daí by Jan­uary 15.

Creaven, 55, planned on two oc­ca­sions to fly over from his home in Dublin to meet a ‘13year-old girl’ he had con­tacted through Face­book mes­sages.

The ac­count, how­ever, proved to be a fake and was set up by the Face­book group Preda­tor Ex­po­sure, which no­ti­fied po­lice af­ter they cor­nered him out­side a ho­tel in Leeds on Novem­ber 18, 2017.
