Popular Irish radio personality Gareth O’Callaghan, who spearheaded efforts to sustain public interest in the 30-year-old cold case of missing and presumed-dead Philip Cairns, also has become a key supporter of our efforts to get to the bottom of the story of rapist Irish Olympic swim coach George Gibney’s flight to America.
On his Facebook page, O’Callaghan has just posted an essay at https://www.facebook.com/gareth.ocallaghan.1/posts/754483091366156:0.
(To clarify a few points there, U.S. District Court Judge Charles R. Breyer in November issued a tentative order in our favor in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security for more material from Gibney’s immigration file. After the government declined to take up the court’s suggestion to unredact certain documents, Judge Breyer in December escalated his ruling to a binding order and summary judgment. The Trump Justice Department now is appealing that decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — the same venue where there were oral arguments today in the case of a stay of the new president’s executive order banning travel to this country from seven predominantly Muslim countries.)
Noting that U.S. immigration policy “is a hot discussion topic right now,” O’Callaghan reviews the tawdry narrative of swim coach Gibney’s sexual abuse and, ultimately, escaping trial on a 27-count indictment thanks to a technical ruling by the Irish Supreme Court with a serious nepotism issue. Gibney then entered the U.S. via mysterious visa procedures, and is now two-plus decades into his permanent residency here.
O’Callaghan concludes by noting that Enda Kenny, the taoiseach (prime minister), is scheduled to meet with Trump at the White House on St. Patrick’s Day:
“Enda Kenny needs now, after almost 25 years of politicians sweeping it under the carpet, to take a hardline on George Gibney when he meets Trump on March 17th, and on the US government’s continued ongoing blind-eyed sheltering of the ‘Number One At-Large Paedophile in Global Sports’, who continues to live freely in the United States thanks to successive governments on both sides of the Atlantic ignoring his evil status as a clear and present danger to children and teenagers everywhere.”
