Some of the boys spoke of a paedophile ring, including another Catholic Home in Northamptonshire, and some famous names.One of those names was Jimmy Savile and I did find a picture of him visiting Shefford in 1984.The home was run by the Catholic Church and the residents were mainly abandoned or orphaned boys between the ages of six and sixteen.Damian told me that abuse, both physical and sexual, was rife in the home.He named several priests who committed this abuse over many years, and of nuns who either aided and abetted this abuse, or turned their heads away.
The chief perpetrators in Damian's time were Father John Ryan (pictured above) and his Brother Father Gerry Ryan.
