EVERY SAINT HAS A PAST AND EVERY SINNER HAS A FUTURE…
Shane Paul O’Doherty was born in January 1955 in Northern Ireland to a Catholic middle class family. In 1970, at only 15, he joined the Provisional IRA. After Witnessing “Bloody Sunday”, he soon became head of the IRA explosives team.
During the summer of 1973 O’Doherty personally conducted a campaign of letter bombs in London. He was arrested during a later ceasefire during the summer of 1975 and received a 30 year to life sentence. He served 14 of those years.
O’Doherty was one of the first prisoners to work his way past the negativity of the philosophy of armed struggle, beginning to recommend publicly and privately an end to violence and a full engagement with the democratic process. From his prison cell, O’Doherty wrote letters of apology to his victims.
This is his story.
