Ashling Hotel, Dublin. this afternoon.
Fiona Doyle holds a press conference following a Court of Appeal decision to increase the custodial sentence on her 74-year-old father, Patrick O’Brien, for raping her when she was a child.
After the ruling, Ms Doyle said she was delighted, and that she was not a victim any more, but a survivor.
She described her father as “a monster” who today got what he “deserves” and is “back where he belongs”.
During the trial, Ms Doyle said she believed her mother knew about the abuse and said today that she had written to the Garda Commissioner seeking to have this investigated.
She said she had “taken back control of her life” and also said that her story is now being made into a film.
