FR Oliver Brennan, former parish priest at Blackrock, has said the support he got from family and friends kept him sane during the two-year ordeal he suffered when he was falsely accused of child abuse.
Fr Brennan was speaking on the Marian Finucane programme on RTE Radio One last Saturday.
“It was the worst thing in the world,” he said, “to be accused of the worst crime of all [really? ... but, we understand your point.]”
