Loc: Dublin, Ireland
The convicted sex offender watched children in a playground in Dublin as he told of the years of abuse he inflicted on innocent young people while serving as a priest in America.

O’Grady has admitted to molesting as many as 25 children while a parish priest in California. He served seven years in jail for molesting two brothers.

The 60-year-old was deported to Ireland in 2001 on condition that he abide by strict child abuse prevention measures. However, while he is on the sex offender’s register here, his exact location is not known.

The documentary, produced by Amy Berg, which will be released in the US on Friday, describes O’Grady as the “most notorious paedophile in the history of the modern Catholic Church”.

According to the filmmakers, his victims ranged from a nine-month-old infant to the mother of another adolescent victim.

O’Grady, a Limerick native, moved to the US in 1971 and from there the 20 years of abuse began.

He has claimed that he himself was molested as a 12-year-old altar boy by a local priest.

The former priest describes the documentary as “the most honest confession of my life”.

The filmmakers have described O’Grady’s demeanour during filming as “without remorse or self reflection”.

Now O’Grady is in the mid-west of Ireland and he is still very much a danger if his words are anything to go by.

“People ask ‘do you feel aroused when you see children in their underwear?’ and I say ‘yeah’,” he tells the camera while walking through a playground.

The 60-year-old’s frank confessions are the subject of an award winning documentary Deliver Us from Evil. The footage is interspersed with evidence from O’Grady’s victims.

One young woman describes what he did to her. “My last memory of Father is severe pain before I blacked out,” said Nancy Sloan.

Bob Jyono, father of Ann Jyono, recalls asking his child whether the priest had touched her as a girl. “She said ‘yes’ and the whole world collapsed.”

While the film vividly exposes the actions of the former priest, it is also the Catholic Church hierarchy which comes under fire.

It shows evidence from the deposition of a Cardinal Roger Mahoney, who is alleged to have masked O’Grady’s actions by moving him from diocese to diocese.

“He had sexual urges towards nine year olds. Is that cause to have him removed from ministry?” Cardinal Mahoney was asked. He replied: “No.”

The cardinal refused to take part in Ms Berg’s documentary and the Los Angeles Archdiocese has described the film as an “obvious anti-church hit piece”. web page

Will some people ever realize this is not about the church it is about sick and perverted bastards harming innocent children and the responsibility of the church to protect those children rather then cover their own ass because they are scared of a scandal. I it is no wonder I have lost my faith in the midst of all of my memories coming back. My abuse was not by a priest but my family was very "religious" and hide the fact that they was abusing me by being the good lil christian family. Stuff like this makes me sick when will people open their eyes and see the true evil going on around them and not just what they want to see because the truth will rock the foundations of this world.

Josh,

My b/f's family pulled the same crap. They presented themselves and their children as good church going people; my b/f was even head alter boy yet all the while, he was at the mercey of their evil. The man has no faith at all 'cause no one helped, not even when he asked.

ROCK ON....Trish

That is my biggest issue with god is where was he when I was being abused and why would he want to help me with all the junk now. I really would like to have faith but I have trouble believing in a god that leaves his so-called children hanging out to be abused.

Josh,

where is God when kids are starving or bombed or whatever else, where is he when men are evil?
He walks beside you, otherwise you would not be here.

Dont confuse God, with what man, who has free will, chooses to do.
You have to grow from past situations, and just make the world a better place,
