Dear Commissioner Conroy,
I have recently received a copy of a letter dated May 25th 2006 which was sent by Minister for Justice, Equality, and Law Reform Mr. Michael McDowell T.D. to Mr. Gerard Madden, who is a Senior Social Worker at The Sperrin Lakeland Health & Social Care Trust, in Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland.
As can be viewed on the scanned copy of Minister McDowell's letter at the Internet address provided just below, I note, in the final paragraph, that my correspondence has been forwarded to the Gardai (i.e. the Republic of Ireland Police).  Please see: 
With further reference to the copy of Minister McDowell's letter at the above address, I would be very grateful if you, and ALL of the other senior public officials in the Republic of Ireland which this e-mail is being copied to in the "To:" section above, would please take very careful note of the fact that Minister Mc Dowell's reply to Mr Madden makes no mention at all of the PTSD Complex injuries I now suffer from: despite the fact it is referred to a number of times in the scanned copy of the main letter, and in the closely associated "enclosed report" from Dr McCavert, which Mr Madden sent to Minister McDowell on November 7th 2005.  For the details, please  see: 
I would ask you all to also please note there is a statement at the address just above from Dr McCavert (GP) which very clearly states that my "symptoms and behaviours are the result of traumas and stresses over years and these traumas and stresses have come at the hands of individuals and public officials and bodies that he has encountered in his struggles to try to correct environmental wrong doings".
With due regard for the statement relating to "public officials and bodies" made by my GP (Dr Michael McCavert) at the address immediately above, and for reasons which I feel should be obvious to most people, the fact that Minister McDowell appears to have completely ignored the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder issue, means that he has now aggravated and compounded (in a very significant way) the whole C-PTSD problem I am at present battling with. 
Now that the "Internet Age" is so well established, it seems to me that there is no need for any reasonably normal person to remain ignorant for long regarding the basic facts relating to the PTSD Complex set of psychological injuries, which in certain important respects relating to "treatment and recovery" resemble physical injuries. There are, for example, several pages outlining the basic facts relating to "PTSD Complex" available via the following Internet address - which do not (I believe) require college degrees in medicine or psychology (or any other subject) to understand: 
Also, and for anyone who wishes to quickly and easily learn of the close links between "Dealing with injustice", and certain common forms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorders, together with an outline account of the shocking problems and difficulties which can and do frequently arise in connection with these matters, I have added a scanned copy of an article by the Dublin based psychologist and Irish Times columnist Marie Murray - which Mr Madden (Senior Social Worker) handed me some weeks ago.  Please see: 
With reference to the extant warrant for my arrest, which Mr Madden has informed Minister McDowell about in his letter on November 7th 2005, please note that I am now URGENTLY in need of a written assurance from a senior public official in the Republic of Ireland which clearly states that I will not be forced, totally against my wishes (which I view as physical and psychological bullying of an extremely dangerous and nasty kind), into appearing before any court of law in the Republic of Ireland in a manner which violates my legal rights under the terms of Article 6 of The European Convention on Human Rights: as Garda (Policeman) Thomas Kenny, of Woodlawn, New Inn, County Galway, kept on threatening to do on several occasions during the days before I eventually fled the Republic of Ireland in haste during the early hours of December 7th 2004 - in spite of a long string of pleas from myself and other members of my immediate family who visited his home on a number of occasions for the purpose of trying to persuade him to stop treating me in that way.
The urgent need for the written assurance referred to in the paragraph just above has to do with an important meeting I need to attend in Roscommon Town on July 10th 2006.  Please note that Mr McDowell has already been informed about this meeting, and that he was informed well before his May 25th reply to Mr Madden  - as can be seen in the copy of the e-mail reproduced at the following address: 

Please also note that although Minister for Justice McDowell has acknowledged my "
difficulties in securing legal representation" in his letter to Mr Madden of May 25th, he has not offered any remedy of any kind for this crucially important problem.  With due regard for his "Justice Minister" position in Government, I find it very strange, and very disturbing, that Minister McDowell has offered me no help at all with this particular difficulty, which is now of many years standing; and, which has already been reported to many senior public officials in writing (by me): on far more occasions than I am able to accurately remember - without reference to my papers, many of which are in County Galway - and consequently unavailable to me without running the risk of being bullied into appearing before a court of law to face a charge of criminal assault without any proper (i.e. well briefed) legal representation.

Changing the subject slightly, I would like to take this opportunity to point out to all concerned that one of the three main sets of "environmental wrong doings" I have objected to relates to the planned location of two huge rubbish dumps near my home in County Galway.  As always, I continue to believe that, in all likelihood, these two rubbish dumps - one of which has been completed by Greenstar/National Toll Roads (in Kilconnell, County Galway) during my present period of forced-exile - are the direct consequence of alterations made to the Republic of Ireland's Waste Management Act a few years ago, which appear to violate Article 28A.1 of the Republic of Ireland's Constitution: in what seems to me, and to many others, to be a very straightforward and blatant manner.  Please note that although I sent a letter through the registered post to Mr. Martin Egan (Lawyer) on July 16th 2004, regarding my wish to have the constitutionality of the legislation in question checked by the courts, which I, or anyone else for that matter, am legally entitled to do (as far as I know), I have never received any reply from Mr Egan.  A copy of my letter to Mr Egan, together with scanned copy of the Post Office receipt, can be viewed at the following address: 
I feel I should make it clear that I am not by any means the only person in my local community (in County Galway) to seriously doubt the legal validity of the now completed "Kilconnell Superdump" - as it is called locally.  For the past 18 months or so, it has been a matter of public knowledge on the Internet that a local young law student (Ms Ann Marie Kelly) has tried - and been formally turned down for no good reason, I understand - to get legal aid to have the constitutionality of the legislation in question checked by the courts: as can be seen at the following address: 
As there are plans to locate a second huge rubbish dump close to my home, this time close to the world famous Turoe Stone (and close to the middle of some of its very closely associated archaeologically important surrounds), which is regarded by many to actually be the most important piece of Iron Age Celtic stone-art in the world, please note that I still have a very strong wish to go ahead with the "Article 28A.1" constitutionality check referred to above.  (Further information on the Turoe Stone can be found via the following address:,+Finnerty&btnG=Search .)
Though there seemed to me, and to everyone I know in County Galway that I discussed the matter with, to be a far better alternative to the two local Superdumps, this alternative plan appears (as I understand the situation at present) to have been very inappropriately pushed to one side by the public officials who were informed about it.  For further information on this point, please see the press release type information regarding the meeting Dr Niamh Clune (Zero Waste Alliance Ireland) addressed in the New Inn area of County Galway on October 1st 2004. 
Closely connected with the local rubbish dumps issue there is also the very important matter of the United Nations Aarhus Convention Agreement which the Republic of Ireland signed in 1998, but, which has not yet been "laid before Dail Eireann" as required by Article 29.5.1 of the Republic of Ireland's Constitution - or "Bunreacht na hEireann" as it is sometimes referred to: which of course literally means "The Basic Law of Ireland" in the Celtic language.
As can be seen at the following address, I would like all concerned to note that I have tried many times - and always unsuccessfully to date - to raise the issue of the Aarhus Convention Agreement with numerous elected representatives and public officials in the Republic of Ireland.  One of many examples of my efforts relating to this particular point can be viewed at the following address: 

Largely on account of the work I did in connection with the case I submitted to the European Court of Human Rights on March 25th last, I now wish all of the senior public officials this e-mail is being addressed to, to know that, in connection with the criminal charge of assault Mr James Hamilton (Director of Public Prosecution) issued against me in 2002, I now feel that my "legal defence" paperwork is approximately 90% complete from my viewpoint. A scanned copy of the charge I was handed on September 6th 2002 can be viewed at: 

With regard to the extant warrant for my arrest, it seems VERY important (to me at least) that I have never received any reply from Mr Hamilton (DPP) in response to the registered letter I sent to him through the registered post on September 21st 2002.  A copy of the letter in question, together with a copy of the associated Post Office receipt, can be viewed at the following address: 
As far as the final preparation for my defence is concerned, the main thing I need now is a lawyer who will assist me to prepare my defence case for the actual court hearing itself.  Though it does not seem at all possible for me to find such a person at the present time, I nonetheless still feel that I need a lawyer who: a) fully recognises the reality of human rights law; b) is willing to act on my behalf and in my best interests, both inside and outside of court; and c) is willing to view all of the basic facts I have outlined in this e-mail as being relevant to my defence case. 
I hope to hear from you (or from one of your senior public official colleagues), within the coming 21 days please, regarding the written assurance I have referred to above in connection the extant warrant for my arrest, and the pre-planning meeting for the 30 acre "Lisnamult" site (near the centre of Roscommon Town) on July 10th 2006.
For future reference purposes, I plan to place a copy of this e-mail at the following address later today: 
Yours sincerely,
William Finnerty.
