I wouldnt call it trivial but given the circumstances how can keeping it quiet be justified? At worst he would have lost his job
I just feel that there is more to this
For someone like him it would be far worse than just
losing his job.
Also, the wife knew he was watching porn but I dont believe she knew the full extent - or that he was caught watching it at work.
The profile we have of him is a very controlling and egotistical bully.
And also a very strict father.
The revelation of what he was doing at school would have eroded all his authority at home. Not to mention his standing in the local community where apparently he was very involved in GAA and the church.
Given his huge control issues, the public unmasking would have been unfathomable for him.
He would no longer have moral authority or control over his family - and he clearly couldn't bear that.
Trying to use depression as an excuse is just cowardly.
