Paddy Doyle was born in Wexford but now lives in Dublin. Paddy is well known for being outspoken on issues such as Disability and Child Abuse. His views have been aired in Canada, the United States and in Europe and the U.K. as well as in Ireland. He was appointed to the The Commission on the Status of People with Disabilities – “A Strategy for Equality” the final report was published in 1996 and regarded by many as the best report on disability in the world.

This website has been “up and running” for thirteen years. It is a place where people who were abused can get information or leave comments – indeed anyone is welcome to comment. Comments deemed by the Webmaster deemed to be offensive or defamatory will not be published. Since the website went “live” I’m pleased to say that only two out of many thousands comments were blocked.

Please do comment on the website under the relevant headings. You will receive an auto response when your comment is posted or when a response to it is made.

I’m indebted to the many journalists who have allowed me to use their copy on this site. I’m also indebted to “PKC” without whom this website would not be here at all. I’ve called on “P” many times for help with rectifying the problems that have arisen for me.

Modesty have I ever offended thee?!


If you’ve any suggestions as to how the website can be improved or made more ‘user friendly’ do let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
