It was March 29th 1975 when Brendan Boland was summoned to give evidence to a secret canonical inquiry. The altar boy had just celebrated his 14th birthday. He had been abused for almost three years by a priest who would become Irelands’ most notorious paedophile. Now the church wanted to know exactly what happened. Brendan told them everything ...Sworn to Silence is the story of one boy’s quiet determination to stop wrongdoing. It is a story which the Irish Catholic church kept secret for almost four decades: the story of Brendan Boland.
This compelling and important book will present a candid and often moving first-hand account of events by Boland.
