Sir, – Growing up in Gweedore in the 1980s, I came into contact with Michael Ferry, as many young people did. He was involved in youth clubs, he went on official school tours, he ran a school tuck shop and became a school caretaker.
It was widely known among children then that he was “dodgy” and plying children with drink. There must have been doubts about him in the minds of adults too. Yet no one intervened. At that same time, a vicious paedophile priest, since convicted, was also active in the area.
I am sure there is much wringing of hands and shaking of heads in Gweedore this week, but how was this allowed to happen?
I am sure if he was shoplifting or robbing the post office he would have not got away with doing so for over 20 years. – Yours, etc,
