A DEPRAVED paedophile priest has been caught living just yards from a playground and a creche – but claims “I have to live somewhere”.
Serial rapist Oliver O’Grady is holed up in a house near the kids’ play area – but admitted: “I might be better off in a more isolated area”.

O’Grady – one of the most depraved paedophiles ever to serve in the Catholic Church – said he avoids going out when children are around.
But he also told how he is desperate to get his history of abusing children deleted from the internet.
O’Grady, who admitted sexually abusing dozens of young children while serving in the Church in California, said: “Well I have to live somewhere and I’ve been here for quite a while and there have been no problems.”
O’Grady was exposed as a serial rapist in the early 1990s when he was caged for 14 years after admitting abusing two young brothers while living in the US.
The child sex beast was paroled after seven years before being deported back to Ireland in 2000.
He added: “I do feel I might be better off in a more isolated area if I could find a place. It’s not easy to find a place like that. I am, believe it or not, trying to find someplace that would suit me and would lessen any danger for people.
“Of course people are fearful for their children and their safety and that is understandable.
“But my main goal is to get to a place where I would be safe but also safe for other people’s benefit.”
O’Grady also told how he plans to try to get information about his vile acts and his court convictions wiped from the internet to allow him to “live in peace”.

O’Grady said: “Unfortunately nowadays people can go on the internet and find out everything they want to find out about people.
“I am trying to see if I can get a lot of that downplayed or taken off if I can because all you have to do is give people my name, they look at the internet and they react.
“I’ve made some enquiries about it but that is all I can say about it now. It’s not an easy thing to do.”

The pervert was caged again in January 2012 after he accidentally left his laptop on an Aer Lingus flight — which Irish police later found to contain explicit pictures of children as young as two.
But he shrugged off the sickening crime by insisted that it happened in the Netherlands and not Ireland.
It was put to him that having been arrested in Dublin in December 2010 for possession of child sex images, he hadn’t changed.
He replied: “Well, yes and no, I was in another country when that happened
The ex-priest was sentenced to three years in Dublin’s Arbour Hill.
He said the Gardai “definitely know I am here” in Waterford but agreed he had to let them know as he is on the sex offenders list.
He added: “If I had a computer I would let the guards know, if I had a computer or access to one — and they know that as well.”
