Very sad news. The God Squad is my answer to the question about which booked changed how I view the world. I read it back in secondary school and it was ahead of its time in calling out the treatment of children in Ireland. A genuinely essential book. RIP Paddy Doyle.

So sorry to read this. #PaddyDoyle’s book #TheGodSquad was one of the 1st books I read in my 20s detailing institutional abuse. It was an eye opener. He was a fearless campaigner for disability rights. I hope now he finally finds the answers he has been searching for. #RIP

Thinking about the death of Paddy Doyle I remembered that the copy of The God Squad I read was borrowed from my convent school’s library. I now suspect that school management were unaware of the content of the book.

Paddy Doyle’s internal strength was such that he was able to transmute this ordeal into strength and sweetness and nobility. The story is beautiful and life-affirming.
