A Message from Heaven: The Life and Crimes of Father Sean Fortune
In the long list of Irish paedophile priests Father Sean Fortune occupies a pre-eminent position as is shown in this powerful investigation into his life by one of Ireland's most outstanding journalists. Sexual abuse of children was his worst crime, but far from his only one. A master manipulator, capable of incredible charm, he lied, cheated, bullied and abused leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. Fortune avoided trial by committing suicide in March 1999 but he left behind many victims - not least the eight young men who had come forward.
