This is a very sad and typical story.
It’s good that Terry Rooney can talk about it freely now. He was a total victim.
The Church and priests in Derry protected his abuser Raymond Gallagher.
In a crazy and cynical reply to Terry the school president, Monsignor James Coulter sais;
“It (the abuse) did not affect his ability to teach”.
I wonder if he was a relative of the Derry composer Phil Coulter?
Terry is quite right to ask for the abuse at St Columb’s to be included in the Historical Abuse investigation by PSNI Deputy Chief Constable Judith Gillespie.
Amy Martin is a product and a former president of St Columbs.
