    Sworn to Silence

    Sworn to Silence

    Brendan Boland was an eleven-year-old altar boy when he first met Father Brendan Smyth and the priest started abusing him. When he was 14,  Brendan finally plucked up the courage to report the abuse to a young priest. He was then questioned before a group of priests and sworn to secrecy. After the interrogation, Brendan and his parents trusted that the Church would stop Smyth. They didn’t, and 20 years later, living in England, Brendan discovered that Smyth had continued to abuse children. Brendan has just published Sworn To Silence, his memoir of his experience.
