Rape Nun's Abuse Pact with Smyth
EXCLUSIVE by PAUL WILLIAMS
EVIL NUN Nora Wall, convicted for helping to rape a ten-year-old child, also secretly provided children for sick paedophile priest Father Brendan Smyth.
The Sunday World has learned that depraved cleric regularly visited St. Michael's Childcare Centre in County Waterford where Wall, then known as Sister Dominic, was working.
Last month Wall was the first woman to be convicted of rape in Ireland .
She was found guilty of helping to hold down a ten year old child who was in her care while her drunken accomplice Paul McCabe raped her.

Victims claim Evil Wall provided kids to the Paedo Priest
Victims of evil nun Nora Wall have claimed that she provided children to paedophile priest Father Brendan Smyth.
Nora Wall (51) is the first woman in the Republic to be convicted of rape.
Last month she was found guilty of holding down a 10 year old girl while depraved drunk Paulo McCabe raped her.
McCabe has also been convicted of the rape which took place at St. Michael's care home in Cappoquin in County Waterford which was run by Wall.
But this week a counsellor who works with the victims of this horror home revealed that Fr. Brendan Smyth may have abused children there.
And she was supported by a former male inmate who was also sexually abused in the home.
According to the sources who spoke to the Sunday World yesterday victims at the home instantly recognised the paedophile priest when his picture was first shown on newspapers and on television.
Gardai are now understood to be investigating what links he had with Cappoquin throughout the 1970s.
I remember a priest who used to come to the home regularly and bring children with him on trips to Donegal. That priest was Fr. Brendan Smyth?said the victim who did not wish to be identified.
And the counsellor who has been working with the victims told us: "The information is very reliable and also very disturbing."
The claims are now likely to lead to a much larger Garda investigation into the possibility that Nora Wall, who is due for sentence in two weeks, was part of a religious-based paedophile ring.
A number of victims who came forward to help put Nora Wall behind bars have already been asked by Gardai about the sick cleric who destroyed the lives of at least 100 children and brought down a Government.
Smyth is known to have travelled throughout the country both north and south, sexually abusing innocent children and using his position as a 'respected' cleric to get away with it.
Nora Wall was convicted last month on two charges of raping Regina Walsh when she was just ten years old.
The offences took place between January 1987 and January 1990.
Regina Walsh, who is now 21, told the Central Criminal Court how Wall held her legs while her friend Paul McCabe, a decrepit drunk, raped her.
Wall also molested and sexually assaulted the innocent youngster who was put into the nun's care at the age of six.
The tot asked the woman who would be her tormentor: "Are you going to be my mammy?"
Said Regina of her ordeal: "She (Wall) beat us with sticks, pots and pans, a chain, but mostly with her fists"
Wall's victims are now planning to sue the Sisters of Mercy and the authorities for allowing them to suffer such an appalling ordeal.
And they want a much more extensive Garda investigation to expose other child abusers at the home and the involvement of clerical paedophile like Brendan Smyth.
