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.
