Steve Ireland raped me when i was 17. i was drunk and he forced himself on me and i could not stop him. I have felt horrible about this my entire life and my husband doesn't even know this. Has any one else been raped by Steve Ireland?

I do not know. I am not from fairfax. This happened to me in the late 80's while visiting other friends in town. I know that he lived north of the park in a house that I think sat a little sideways to the street.
I knew him back then

Steve was from Fairfax. He hasnt been around in years. I believe his father died of cancer and his mother married Dr. Bare from Tarkio. Last I knew he was still pretty worthless.

Yes, Steve was from Fairfax and his father is dead and his mother married Dr. Wanamaker and they live in Hamburg, Iowa. As for Steve he is in Omaha, Nebraska.

Shy lady, do we have more in common than a name? I have a feeling I am not the only person this has happened to.

Why haven't you told your husband about this? Did you have a child by him?

I just can't. I haven't been able to tell any one, it makes me feel to awful about myself. I know Steve told people because I was made fun of about it back then. It was also my first time and he was angry at me afterwards for bleeding on the carpet. No children by Steve. I just want to cry every time I think about it. Sorry, I just don't want to feel so alone about this no more.

I knew Steve in High School. This does not suprise me to hear about him. Feel better Shy Girl, his actions are no fault of yours.

Shy girl can not possibly be Amy Harper, Amy lived in Corning and would have been familiar with both Rock Port and Fairfax. She said she was visiting. Speaking of the Harpers, Amy was the only decent one of bunch..and that isn't saying much.

Mo-Girl, if you know so much about Amy Harper and that it couldn't have been her and where she lives, then why are you saying it couldn't been her. You just told someone else that you had been raped as a teenager in another article. You have to be the same girl as Shy girl.

lol, no I am not shy girl.. I too grew up in Corning so I knew Amy and her ignorant poor excuse for brothers and her maniac mother. I also do not hide the fact that I was raped, my parents, children and husband know the facts. Also growing up in a tiny town such a Corning where there is absolutely nothing to do we would often go to Rock Port where the movie theater and bowling alley was located, we also would cruise in Fairfax, Craig, Mound City and Tarkio. On some summer nights we would gather at the river, or drive down to Big Lake and have some fun. Hence my opinion that IF it were Amy Harper SHE would have known Rock Port and would have not said that she was "visiting a friend". I truly hope that shy girl leads her hubby to this post and lets him read it and then talks about it with him, her hiding this from him is obviously disturbing her and will affect the rest of her life, but less so if she tells him up front about it. Sorry to let you down, but I am not shy girl, I truly have no idea who it is...but I wish I did!

Maybe I can provide some information here. I am a ex-boyfriend of Amy Harper from Corning. She told me about being raped by Steve Ireland, but I'm sure it was not her first time. Don't think she would keep it from her husband either. This story does sound very much like what she told me though. Last I knew she was married to Lee Hughes from Craig, and they were on a military base somewhere. And Lee and Amy both were good people last I knew. It's been over 20yrs since I've seen or heard anything of either. Interesting posts and I would agree that Amy and Shy Girl are probably not his only victims.

You sure seem to know a lot of what Steve has done and think he's still doing it, but you really don't know a thing about him now. It's sure funny that things like that wasn't brought on back then so he could of gotten in to trouble when it happened,instead bring it up this many years later and everybody talk about him like he really did rape a lot of people.

He REALLY DID! Duh! But like many sex related crimes the shame and stigmatism that goes into being a rape victim plays a HUGE factor in women not reporting a rape. You always hear, "well she was drunk it was her fault" or "she knew not to take a ride home from a guy she barely knew" or "she dressed to sexy and therefore was asking for it" and so many more. Plus to have everyone in the world know that you were raped is tough to do, you feel dirty and ashamed and just want to hide from the world, you do NOT want anyone to know. You blame yourself forever for it. And IF Steve would show his face in Rock Port I would have no problem as a mature woman to face him publicly and tell him to his face that he raped me and was wrong for doing so if he were my rapist. You act like there is some huge conspiracy to dis Steve behind his back..that is not the case, this is here for ANNYONE including Steve to read..so it is hardly a secret group of women "out to get" Steve, this is merely a forum for all his victims to come forward and discuss their own personal trauma at the hands of Steve.Truly I am not interested in "what Steve has done" in his life today because these rapes far outweigh any good deeds he may be doing now, and he may not be raping anyone now, but he has raped teenage girls in the past. And HE knows it is a FACT! And the women who were his victims back then KNOW it too!

So, your saying if he was in Rock Port right now you'd confront him. So,do you live in Rock Port right now or Memphis Mo? He lives in Omaha Nebraska right now. Everyone is saying he raped lots of girls but I have heard of just two on here. That's different than a lot.

How is 2 different that a lot? If you were one of the 2 you would think 2 was WAY too many, and because he has raped 2 I am sure there are probably others out there who have yet to come forward. And No I do not live in Rock Port, but I do get to town quite often and YES I would confront him, I am no longer a scared little rape victim, I am now an adult empowered woman who will no longer be afraid of him.
