"It was a dark aspect of humanity that nobody wanted to see and was therefore like some malignancy gone mad because there was no light shone on it. It was a culture that can exist within any human society or structure where we create a denial of the possibility, where we collect the vulnerable in one place, and where we don't monitor and check who is looking after the vulnerable."

- Colm O'Gorman, in interview

 

Description

Beyond Belief is the memoir of Colm O'Gorman, who grew up in Co. Wexford, where he was a victim of clerical sexual abuse. O'Gorman later sued the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Ferns and the Dublin Papal Nuncio.  He founded the charity One in Four, for the survivors of sexual abuse and/or sexual violence, in London in 1999, and in Ireland in 2002.
