“And he was laughing through all this, laughing, kind of sneering and laughing through all of this.”

“Sure it upset me, yeah and you know, it seems to be happening more and more in our society.”

“It seems to be common now for people to lift the phone or go on social media and slate people and ridicule people and put people down, you know, no matter what they try to do in life.”

“I’ve cried about it too. I’ve cried about those things because I feel I didn’t deserve them and genuinely I didn’t deserve that kind of stuff.”

Despite the abuse, Father Ray said that he is determined to continue with his showbiz endeavours, and would love to represent Ireland in the Eurovision
