Paedophile priest to be released from prison


From RTE News Online

The Prison Service has confirmed that convicted paedophile priest, Fr Ivan Payne, will be released from prison next month. He has served his full sentence.

He was initially sentenced in April 1998 to two years in prison, with a further four years suspended. The Court of Criminal Appeal imposed a six-year sentence on appeal from the DPP.

The Prison Service said today that Fr Payne is entitled to the standard quarter remission of sentence.

He will have served a full sentence of four and a half years by October.

The Prison Service said no concessions were granted to Fr Payne and he received no special treatment.

I witnessed Payne at close quarters in Mourne Road,Drimnagh. He tried to abuse me and my friends. We were all 8-11 year old boys. I would love to hear from any body who knew him in Drimnagh at that time. I don't think this information has come out about him yet.
