The Shame of Ireland

It would appear that Paddy Doyle has removed his well respected an well loved website "The God Squad"

This is the Link to the God Squad

I hope this is a temporary hitch? as there is so much there that means so much to many Survivors!

Either way I wish him well in his future endeavours.

We all held him in high regard as he was in a position of trust and that was the reason he was able to 'dupe' us. I'm still struggling to come to terms with who he really is.
I will make no more comment.
Thank you for your thoughtful, kind and fair comments.

Thanks Claire, I think many of us will be now struggling with all this latest information. I am sure he will be made well aware of the bother he has caused, and take action to set the record straight ,by way of apology's to those he duped.

Good luck in the future, keep strong  !

Well Claire. On here we are survivers of child abuse either sexual or Institution abuse. What you are writing about is recent or adult abuse by a surviver. Its differcult to get my mind round this. I havent seen Paddy  other than on internet. I read the comments on different subjects and it was interesting. I saw the vidios on there too. So i am not saying i know him but i couldnt say that for anyone i have only met this way. Its a very serius accusation to make but we cant judge the situation on a one sided basis. He works with vulenrable people and has done for a long time. There are the others too in wheel chairs and such. So that  makes it an offical matter before newspapers .

Look at the damage done to Paddy by the stress put on him by someone using this website to get at him.  Just type dystonia storm paddy doyle to see what's happened to the man that helped out more people than you can begin to imagine. Without Paddy Doyle, I would never have found my two sisters and one brother.

dystonia storm paddy doyle into you tube be prepared to be shocked. I've seen the emails and texts sent to him by this person and I have heard recordings of the person, left on his phone.

She sounds very bitter about things. But she shouldnt be doing things to hurt others for her own reasons.

Are you trying to say I am responsible for his 'medical condition'? That clip was brought to my attention by another of his victims a week ago, he emailed it to her and she then sent it to me. He was trying to emotionally blackmail her with it in my opinion. Are you the person that held the camera by any chance?
I think it's only fair that you should see Mr Doyles emails to me, for balance, don't you think! Would you be so kind as to pass on your email address to Rob please. I will not, however, forward any pictures so as to not cause embarrassment.

@Pauline 'She' has a name I would expect you to use it as a mark of respect. I am not 'bitter', I was very hurt by his actions, absolutely, I was as I said completely broken hearted. When I 'met' Mr Doyle I was very vulnerable and believed everything he told me. I cannot repeat here what was said so as to protect his wife, but I can say he led me to believe he was in a very abusive r'ship. I wanted to protect him and 'rescue' him if you like however that is well gone. There is no bitterness here just sympathy. He needs psychological help but he also needs to apologise to me and the seven other women who have contacted me.

If you like you can both find me on twitter and I can introduce you to some of the 'others'.

It seems to me all is well that ends well, not longer having to expend so much times and energy on corresponding with so many close female friends simultaneously, despite his condition, should relieve Paddy Doyle of a tremendous amount of stress and improve his functionality enormously.

Does anyone have a problem with that? Somehow, now it has all come into the light of day, I doubt if he will ever find himself under so much stress again...however hard he tries.

It is easy to judge intelligent adults for being easily duped, but when someone in a position of trust plays upon the compassions and goodnature of others rather than any meanness of spirit it is only to their credit that they can be so is incredibly hurtful and humiliating to be ill used that way, and, having met some of them, I can say it is only because they were such strong, sane women to begin with that they are still standing.

Claire Rose.  I don't want to get into any discussion with you or with anyone else for that matter. Paddy was back in hospital again yesterday and will be in again next week. I don't for a second believe that he would use 'blackmail' as a means of getting at anyone.  If someone sent you the video, well and good, that's their business. All of us who care about Paddy just want to see him well. Contrary to what you might think, I did not hold the camera, it was held by his neurologist and then with the agreement of Paddy, it was put on You Tube. Not once did he blame you for anything even though his friends, are legion have been encouraging him to do so. May suggest that you read up on Dystonia - Paddy's disability and realise the impact of stress on it. Not just that but stress alone can actually cause dystonia.  I've been saddened to see him in a hospital bed, saddened to see him unable to do much.  Myself and his many, many friends are wishing that he will recover from this and not be bullied off Twitter.  Every phone call you made to him was recorded.  Anyone receiving that sort of abuse would be stressed out and broken even without a disability like Paddy's.  I can say with certainty that he's not blackmailing anyone.  He wanted the video to be on line to show people the effects of stress and the damage it can do.  I won't be writing any more here on elsewhere.  I've said what I wanted to say. My hope for Paddy is that he get's well. People who never prayed are now praying for him.  I've nothing more to say.Remember what he did for you when you read The God Squad. Best wishes. Mags.

I will not be making any more comments on this site or elsewhere. I've said what I had to say.

In all seriousness, don't you think Paddy Doyle is a big boy, and a remarkably intelligent one at that, and, as such just as capable of recognising that, all moral issues aside, trying to conduct online affairs with  (isn't it up to half a dozen now?) women, while convincing them they were all exclusive and hiding that from his long suffering spouse was almost certain to cause him an unhealthy level of stress?


That being so, don't you think he rather brought any harmful stress upon himself when he chose to embark upon this particular "hobby"? Surely he is not so arrogant as to believe he would never be found out?

...and then there was the stress that his unwitting playthings had no hand or part in...considering the way he was behaving his own conscience must have been giving him a VERY hard time indeed...and all he had to do to end all that stress exacerbating his dystonia was to own up and stop using real people as toys.

Regardless, I am certain that if he were here to speak for himself the last thing he would want to do is hide behind his disability the way that you seem to be trying to hide him behind it...I will grant him that, perhaps you should to?

On a more positive note, very pleased to see they make hospitals look so much like real homes these days.
