One of Father John Murphy’s six new victims even felt unable to visit his mum’s grave

An “evil monster” paedophile priest who ruined the lives of 10 children was locked up again – at the age of 96.

Father John Murphy was jailed for three years in December 2017, for molesting four boys during the 1960s and 1970s.

The pervert, from Kirkdale, used swimming lessons, “exercise sessions” and camping trips to interfere with children as young as eight.
