Daly: Bloody day changed my life.

THE priest captured on camera helping Bloody Sunday victims said yesterday he would never have become a bishop if iconic pictures of him that day had not been published.

Fr Edward Daly, 73, was pushed into the limelight when images of him clasping a bloodied handkerchief while tending to the dying in Derry were beamed around the world.

Thirteen civil rights protesters were shot dead by British soldiers in the city in January 1972.

Fr Daly, right, said: "Bloody Sunday changed my life in every way. I would not have been Bishop of Derry but for those pictures.

"I was happy ministering then I became a public figure. I was never happy with that."
