Paul Moody’s ex-girlfriend speaks out following his campaign of torture
29th July 2022
A woman who suffered a years-long campaign of terror at the hands of Garda Paul Moody has said that his abuse was ‘cruel and beyond evil’.
Terminally ill ‘Nicola’ has described how Moody taunted her about her cancer and checked confidential information about her using the Garda computer system. Her comments came as gardaí continue to investigate her claim that she called Moody’s superior officer at Irishtown Garda Station only to have someone divert the call to Moody.
Moody was jailed on Tuesday for three years and three months for his campaign of hate and intimidation.
‘Nicola’, 43, who does not want her true identity to become public, was sharply critical of a social worker who she said did not believe her story, along with friends of the now ex-garda who continued to give him support after he was charged and later pleaded guilty.

She said that Moody’s horrific campaign has finally come back to haunt him, remarking: ‘While trying to destroy my life, he actually destroyed his own.
‘He tried to lie and come after a member of my family with false evidence,’ Nicola said. While she said that Moody, 42, had managed to intercept her desperate call to Irishtown Garda Station.
