Over 500 supporters of accused Irish nanny sign up for Facebook page to proclaim her innocence
Family priest says 'there’s no foundations' yet to accusations against Aisling McCarthy Brady
Support for the Cavan nanny expected to be accused of killing a one year old baby has been growing online.
A Facebook group entitled “Support for Aisling McCarthy Brady” reiterated that the Irish woman is innocent until proven guilty. Over 500 supporters have “Liked” the page and commented.
Among the comments was one from Karen Kinsella which read, “Really shocked!!! I worked with her years ago she's a lovely girl.”
Another poster, Chrissy Andrews-Dirrance, wrote, “INNOCENT until proven GUILTY!!! If you are not a friend of Aislings, then move along, no one cares about your opinion.. there are also other reports of healing fractures, and malnutrion! hmmm. so lets wait and see what happens before you judge someone you dont know [sic].”
Monica McCarney wrote; “ Aisling myself & Koojo both thinking of ye! We're all praying for you, hope things work out ok for you. x”
The Boston Herald reported that very few people that they interviewed in the Irish community would say anything about the case and many told the reporter that she was innocent until proven guilty.

“It is unfortunate for our community if it is tarnished by either sensationalism of a sad situation or the transgression of someone who actually did wrong,” said Connell Gallagher, publisher of Boston’s Irish Emigrant newspaper.
“This lady has to deal with what happens. Whether she is guilty or not, it remains to be seen.”
Meanwhile, locals in the Cavan town of Lavey, including the local priest, have come out in support of the accused nanny Aisling McCarthy Brady.
McCarthy Brady from Lavey, County Cavan, living in Boston since 2002, has been accused of the assault and possibly the murder of one-year-old Rehma Sabir who was in her care.
The baby died in a Boston area hospital after being rushed there with severe injuries.
Father Kevin Fay, a priest from McCarthy Brady’s mother’s parish said the family of nine children were well known and respected and he had serious doubts about the charges.
Fay emphasised said there is “no foundation” to the allegation put against the Cavan native. Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph he said, “It is an allegation at the moment.
"Allegations are allegations - there's no foundation to them, no foundation at the moment to any of them."
However, a neighbor in Boston for five years said he had no doubt that McCarthy Brady had violent tendencies.
“When I found out she was a nanny, it crossed my mind to find that family and tell them how she is violent and aggressive,” Quincy neighbor Thomas Collins said of Brady.
The construction ironworker told the Boston Herald he’d lived upstairs and had numerous run-ins with her. “She’s all of 90 pounds and she’d literally be in my face yelling at me,” he told the paper.
