But now he must add a chilling new entry to his list of achievements: he has become the first paedophile to be tried and convicted after being linked to allegations of a VIP ring based at an infamous South London guesthouse who preyed on boys from a nearby care home.His offending, as far as we know, goes back to the Seventies when, while training for the priesthood, he worked as a part-time carer at a local authority-run home for vulnerable boys in Grafton Close, Richmond-upon-Thames.But instead of facing disciplinary procedures and the possibility of being laicised — the Catholic version of defrocking — he simply went to live with ‘various friends’ and had what he called a ‘breakdown’.It was shortly after this incident that Mc Sweeney was booted out in disgrace.When this happened, Mc Sweeney dropped all contact with him.By then, Mc Sweeney had been ordained into the priesthood and was working in the diocese of Brentwood.

Connections: Mc Sweeney said Mass at Norwich City Football Club at the request of its celebrity cook owner Delia Smith (left), and conducted the marriage of world heavyweight boxing champion Frank Bruno (right)Mc Sweeney’s conviction last week for offences of indecent assault of a minor and making indecent images of children confirms his four decades as a known, active paedophile, most of which he spent in positions of authority over children and young people.The two men also travelled to Amsterdam, visiting sex shops in the red-light district.Shortly after that trip, the pair sat in Stingemore’s flat at Grafton Close and watched a film featuring sex acts involving boys as young as ten.The court heard the boys at the care home knew Mc Sweeney as ‘the priest’, and that abuse happened ‘almost all the time’ when he stayed over at the home.He would try to kiss them or fondle their genitals, and he made them sit on his lap.

As we shall see, at least one Catholic layperson who became aware of the reason for Mc Sweeney’s sudden departure from Essex was shocked when, by chance, he found that the priest had been ‘recycled’ to another part of the country as though nothing had happened.
