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.

Hi Rob & all members,

I have been out of touch because of a few glitches and a new e-mail address is now in place

I too miss the connection to Paddy's site I e-mail Julie Dunne to get any information from the fund and am told

by her that January 2014 is when I can get a form to claim for any health issues, just hope nothing happens

in the meantime at going on 79. I would like to know if in the meantime as I travel into the USA from Canada,

would I be covered for any health complications whilst out of my adopted country Canada, Julie cannot answer

that and also Julie cannot answer if my wife, lets face it, is my care giver for over 50 years, without whom I

would not be even writing this missive would be covered. The minister will decide on that issue and other issues in 2015 or 16.

That's the information I get.


Seanie, the confused Canadian from Limerick and Glin.

Its not surprising These groups are doing well out of all this. Paddy is active. That wouldnt go down well.

Unfortunately Doyle, the professional victim, is back up and running. Hopefully someone in the media will expose him for what he really is, soon.

Hi  Rob, Paddy's site has reappeared  has reappeared, but it seems just for the use of its archives .

Sorry but it seems we have a case of a Survivor attacking and trying to discredit another Survivor here, and in my view, that is not needed.

We have our various distresses  and anxieties with the STF, RIRB,  and failings of the Government to do right by what Survivors needs are, and its in those areas that anger should be channelled .Not fighting and having a go at each other.

I doubt at this time and moment anyone knows what exactly are the Problems concerning Paddy's actions, but  he is entitled to handle his life as he see's fit, and its obvious he has his reason's for doing so.

I have always found Paddy straight, honest and trustworthy, he provided a site / platform over many years for Survivors to use and communicate with each other, and it was well used by some that are now down on him !

I certainly never experienced anything traitorous about his behaviour, the post he held briefly at the STF, was also advertised and open for anybody to apply .

Doyle has been using his website to prey on, deceive, manipulate and exploit vulnerable women who contact him. He has left twitter due to fear of exposure and IMO he should leave the www for the protection of women. He is the most dishonest, untrustworthy survivor I have ever met. His devious behaviour knows no bounds.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but for what its worth, I am basing my own experiences of knowing Paddy for many years now, and he had quite a following of female Survivors using his site throughout that time.

But the areas you refer to are out of my league, as I don't use them, so cant comment in that regard. But to be honest, I never found him to be devious, and never known him to use his site simply for his advantage.

But I have always believed that what goes round, comes round, we can only wait and see !

Comment by Claire Rose on October 7, 2013 at 17:42
I am also basing my experience on 'knowing' him. As he said at the recent SNAP conference, 'the women are attracted to me'. I was one of his victims who had to relive my sexual abuse for his sexual pleasure. He told me he was a councillor and could help me. I later discovered he was in relationships with me and 4 other women simultaneously. All of us contacted him to compliment him on his book/work. How many more are out there!
I wish I had faith in 'what goes around, comes around' but life has thought me differently.

Sorry you had this experience Clair, its quite a surprise to hear these comments, especially that there was relationships all going on t the same time. Not making excuse's but I was completely basing my views on my knowledge to date, and very unaware of this side of the coin.

Living in the UK, I only know Paddy through his site , his book, and his email address. Never actually met the man. It is not nice to know there  are obviously two sides to all this, and It seems, I only knew one side.

Hope life is better for you now, these are obviously other areas we all have to survive.

Good luck
