Tom Lyons has written the most about cults for Irish newspapers, Dialogue Ireland wishes him well with his new assignment.

I have known Tom Lyons since the beginning of his career. I have found him a fearless writer in regard to my area of competence cultism.

Tom Lyons

A lot of journalism involves the threat of defamation and where a story is the law is soon behind.

He has worked with a number of newspapers which is a sign of the shrinking market for paper versions of news. How do you get people online when for some of us we need a break for a bit of paper once a week?
Wishing him well in this new venture.
Here is a selection of his articles which have included death threats. The currency is trying to get at the truth. When dealing with high pressure groups that exercise high levels of influence and control it is difficult to keep sane under the strain.

The currency is about addressing how the powerful try to stop you getting to the truth.
In our work we often a threatened with legal attacks and in one case involving Tony Quinn we got a very pleasant surprise when Justice Hogan looked at this issue of our rights to assist the victims of cultism.

Scientology Organisation front groups outed on Liveline. Mike Garde Director of Dialogue Ireland outlines their game plan

Tinahely Show

Paul Clarke was surprised to see the Church of Scientology giving out stress tests at the Tinahely show. He confronted them. It turns out they have been attending shows all over the country. Listeners told us of their encounters.

He saw that they had parked a Scientlogy van behind their stand but when asked had they any connection to Scientology they denied it.Paul could not remember the name of the group he had confronted. I knew as I had received a call from the public telling me about their presence the day of the show.

It was of course Dianetics. Here is a Conference they are holding this weekend.


What are they trying to achieve?

Dublin Comic Con goers voice concern over Church of Scientology hosting art competition at event

Emma CostelloBy Emma Costello


Dialogue Ireland preface

Diana Stahl, from the Church of Scientology, has released a statement regarding the art competition.

‘To all critics of this initiative, self proclaimed experts and general complainers I have one question: what did you do about the drug problem?’

What I did was to make people aware that getting involved with Scientology is like getting hooked on drugs. Because they use these events to not educate the public about drugs but to recruit people to Scientology.

Scientology does what it does best, it infiltrates rubbish.

The Return Prime Time on Scientology11Infiltration of Irish society. The purpose of these cleanups is to penetrate our society and local government. Good PR. I would suggest to DCC that they connect the Scientologists to local cleanup initiatives in their area. Their nearest project is the Dodder river near the Firhouse Scientology Community Centre.…/clean-up-of-dodder-rubbish-…

What you have is international volunteers being diverted from their unpaid Scientology work to clean up litter as a or stunt.

Scientologists carried out more than 70 clean-ups in Dublin in past year

City council provides ‘A Way to Happiness’ with gloves, litter pickers and bags

The Church of Scientology has carried out more than 70 community clean-ups at various locations around Dublin over the past year in co-ordination with local councils.

Dublin City Council’s Central Area Committee revealed recently that a community group called A Way to Happiness contacted it seeking to carry out a clean-up in the Guild Street area of the north inner city, including around Sheriff Street Bridge, on March 2nd. The area is one of the most deprived parts of the capital.

“They cut back heavy buddleia and cleared hard-to-reach areas. Their efforts to improve the bridge and its environs have enhanced the area greatly,” the council said in a public domain report.

However, the action has been condemned by the anti-cult group, Dialogue Ireland, who warned that public clean-ups are a common tactic used by cult-like organisations to normalise their presence in local communities

Similar tactics were employed in Ireland in the past by the Unification Church, commonly known as The Moonies, said the organisation’s Mike Garde.

“Scientology have been doing this for a while. They’re trying to build bridges into the community so they can become identified with positivity.”

He compared it to Scientology’s recent anti-drug campaigns and the efforts of its affiliated association Narconon to set up a controversial drug treatment centre in a Co Meath village.

“Clean-ups like this can almost present them in a favourable light amongst county council officials,” Mr Garde added.

Science fiction

The Way to Happiness is the title of a 1980 pamphlet by science fiction author and Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard, which lists 21 moral commandments. Hubbard founded the church in 1953. The US and Spain are among the countries that recognise it as a religion, while other governments have declared it a cult.

In 2016 the Church of Scientology launched a “National Affairs Office” on Merrion Square in Dublin. In October 2017 it opened its European base at a large church and community centre in Firhouse, Dublin.

Responding to queries from The Irish Times, Dublin City Council said its Central Area Office “was first contacted in 2017 by A Way to Happiness. They informed us that they were Scientologists and that they were interested in carrying out a clean-up of the areas around the lifting bridge over the Royal Canal on Sheriff Street Upper.

“The usual assistance, as with other groups or community clean ups, was offered to them and hence were supplied with gloves, litter pickers, bags. When the clean-up was completed. Dublin City Council collected and removed all the bags.”


Asked whether any other religious groups seek permission to carry out clean-ups, the council said “it encourages all community, residential, business and environmental groups to get involved in community clean-ups”.

The Church of Scientology said too many people leave the job of cleaning community areas to the council.

“The Church of Scientology has always encouraged people, no matter whether they are members or not, to take care of their environment,” a spokeswoman said. “Our volunteers have done more than 70 clean-ups at different locations around Dublin over the last year in co-ordination with the respective councils.”

She added that The Way to Happiness encourages people to safeguard and improve their environment and is used by groups and individuals around the world to “bring about moral values in a fun and cool manner”.

Dialogue Ireland attempts to meet Dennis Curran at a monastery in Moone, Co. Kildare

Dennis C pic


Dialogue Ireland has been involved in bringing the issue of Japa to the Irish public.
Initial reports showed how a company in Nenagh seemed to be brought under undue influence. The initial reports spoke about a Yoga group and we named it as Japa. Within days the Japa web site was taken down. Also all the Japa psychotherapists pretended they knew nothing about what was going on. We then had the remarkable situation where teachers who had been up to their eyes in sending folks to India and sending people to Dennis acted as if they were innocents abroad.
Recently we had a strange video put up by Fergal Cusack which is really revealing.
