We published our first book about the story of our abuse in September 2011 entitled ‘Click, Click’. This book went onto become a number 1 best seller in Ireland and the UK.  

About Click, Click

Joyce, June and Paula Kavanagh were three sisters born to a family of ten in Ballyfermot, Dublin in the 1960s. Their father abused all three of them in the family home throughout their childhood. In 1989, the sisters made the brave decision to bring charges against their father and, in 1990, the state took a successful case against him. 

He was convicted and imprisoned. ‘Click, Click‘ is the story of their abuse; the exposure of a man prolific in his paedophilia; and an Irish childhood lost in a dysfunctional, abusive and torturous environment. Importantly, however, it is also the story of three women’s healing; their coming to terms with their abuse, and their forgiveness of themselves and others. 

The Kavanagh sisters have refused to allow their abuse to define them. With fierce humour, insight and honesty, they now share their story and show that with love and determination, you can indeed conquer all.

I read this book on the recommendation of a friend who just said ‘it’s powerful’.  A short way into the book I found it hard going as I knew what was to come! I went back to it two or three times before I felt quite humble and decided that if these girls had the strength to write it I had to be strong enough to read it and I’m glad I did. A huge sacrifice for the good of children everywhere.

Brave, inspiring book!

This book is truthful, honest and brave. It is frequently painful to read, as an honest account of severe abuse should be, but also at times funny, inspiring and heart-warming.

The three sisters had different ways of coping, but they have all survived and achieved and not allowed the abuse to stamp “victim” upon them.

This should be essential reading for therapists, social and health workers and people who work for other organisations such as the police, schools, churches etc. for whom it is far easier to ignore rather than face up to the consequences of dealing with the abuse of the vulnerable.

It is a book for all of us. The more who understand, the harder it will be to conceal. Wonderful book! wonderful authors!

People need to read this to try and understand what abuse does to a child

It made me cry at first but then I was so proud of the way you have all turned your lives around. It was an amazing read. May your lives be calmer in the years to come. God Bless xxx

What a story

I have purchased this book after hearing about it on This Morning a few months ago when the Kavanagh sisters came to speak about their story. I haven’t finished reading it yet but I’m not far from finishing. It is a very heartbreaking true story, not always easy to read bearing in mind that it has happened in real life but overall a very good book of hope.
