The God Squad.

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.

His disability is described by many neurologists as: A chronic involuntary movement disorder Generalised Dystonia

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 Comments deemed by the Webmaster deemed to be offensive or defamatory will not be published.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.

  1. Thanks so much for your comment. I appreciate it very much. The last line of your comment is both sad and glad. The sadness is that you had to flee. The ‘glad’ is that you’re a successful businessman in Australia. Keep well. Feel free to keep in touch with me via email if you wish.
    Best wishes. Paddy

  2. Dear Paddy,

    You are a very special man, kind and caring, you make people happy, you have no
    Self pity and you give to others. You have compassion,, you have gratitude, I would
    Feel very special if I had a brother like you.

    God put you in this life to make others feel good, you are an example to us all.
    Take care and be good to your self, Love you…… .. Marianne, London, England

  3. After reading Bruce Arnold’s The Irish Gulag , I thought it time to make contact.

    I was abused as a child. The instigator was my mother but backed up by my father) an alcoholic) -we lived in a small pub.

    I never got support from the rest of the family (one brother and 5 sisters),
    I was the ‘Black sheep’ in other words.

    I had to do all the work. Never got clothes- got hand downs from my older brother but this is not an issue.

    I never got food as the rest did, I was at the end of the queue. And then I had to wash all the dishes after them.

    I grew up in a small village called Blenerville, Tralee, the resting place of Robert Emmet.

    As Bruce pointed out-love is needed when young- I never got any love from the family (but was lucky to get it from my aunt(Kay) and uncle(Tim)).

    I once asked one of my sisters, why was I treated like this!
    Is there something wrong with me ? and she said there probably is !!

    Now after fleeing, I’m a successful businessman here in Australia.

  4. Just found this again – so sorry disability has worsened! I Just wanted to wish you the best – because you are one of the best. For what it’s worth I will be praying to the Creator (the real one, not the false god invented by Pedophiles Inc.) for you. Take care.

  5. A woman I support has in the last week disclosed to me that she was abused as a child in an institution. Is it too late for her to apply for redress? If so, how can this be right? It can take years, decades even, for survivors of abuse to find the words and courage to tell their story.

  6. I just stumbled upon this and all I have to say is INSPIRATIONAL … Keep doing what you are doing !
