Updated Edition In November 2009 former national and Olympic swimming coach Ger Doyle was convicted of thirty-five sexual offences against children. This is just the most recent of an appalling series of child sexual abuse scandals in Irish swimming. Long before Ger Doyle was charged, renowned swimming coaches George Gibney, Derry O'Rourke and Frank McCann had become synonymous with some of the worst crimes against children ever to come before the Irish courts; Fr Ronald Bennett, founder of the Schools Swimming Association, was also charged with sexual assaults against his pupils. All these coaches, the most respected in the sport, preyed on young swimmers. They exploited their dreams of greatness and betrayed the trust of their parents. Between them, they are believed to have left hundreds of victims in their wake. And the failure of the sport's authorities to respond adequately to complaints paved the way for the abuse of many more young victims. In candid interviews, survivors outline the effects of the abuse - psychiatric illnesses, broken marriages, financial hardship, and alcohol and drug addiction. Deep Deception examines the structures of Irish swimming, looks at the reasons these men escaped justice for so long and assesses the measures that have been taken to protect children in the aftermath of the scandals. This updated edition includes new chapters and previously unpublished material. JUSTINE McCARTHY is an award-winning journalist and a frequent broadcaster. She works for The Sunday Times and is the author of Mary McAleese: The Outsider, a biography of the president.

A transformative, euphoric memoir about finding solace in the unexpected for readers of H is for Hawk, It's Not Yet Dark, and When Breath Becomes Air. Ruth's tribe are her lively children and her filmmaker and author husband Simon Fitzmaurice who has ALS and can only communicate with his eyes. Ruth's other "tribe" are the friends who gather at the cove in Greystones, Co. Wicklow, and regularly throw themselves into the freezing cold water, just for kicks. The Tragic Wives' Swimming Club, as they jokingly call themselves, meet to cope with the extreme challenges life puts in their way, not to mention the monster waves rolling over the horizon. Swimming is just one of the daily coping strategies as Ruth fights to preserve the strong but now silent connection with her husband. As she tells the story of their marriage, from diagnosis to their long-standing precarious situation, Ruth also charts her passion for swimming in the wild Irish Sea--culminating in a midnight swim under the full moon on her wedding anniversary. An invocation to all of us to love as hard as we can, and live even harder, I Found My Tribe is an urgent and uplifting letter to a husband, family, friends, the natural world, and the brightness of life.
