The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland


As Minister Jan O’Sullivan is new to her job, would it be at all possible that we could band together and ask the Minister to meet with a group of survivors so that we can voice our ISSUES with the Caranua program. As Caranua was developed for the survivors and because most if not all are already entitled to these services offered either by age, medical card or through social circumstance the Caranua program IS NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE. Minister Quinn, did say he would review the program in 2015, the new Minister needs to review it with URGENCY NOW! We need to have an account from the Minister as to what is happening to our SURVIVORS MONEY AND BECASUE ITS OUR MONEY WE NEED TO BE KEPT INFORMAED OF SPENDING. We would like to know from Minister Jan O’Sullivan about the interest on the 110 Million and where it is being banked, also where the rental income from properties given to survivors by the religious is being banked on our behalf , and what is happening to the original 110 Million.

Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

thanks Jack 

Is this the Chief Executive that has a salary of 80.000Euros    So what does Jan O Sullivan do in her capacity as a minister it sounds like passing the buck. 

Now as it was the government that made the decision to do this how come thay are refusing the responsability. Whenever questioned are asked about this there is never anyone to answer. Passing it on from one office to another cant be that complicated. Like addressing a fish it is. So the next titled civil servant will also not pass on. Its insulting. Ministers without powers to change this. Hard to believe.

 well in America when you have a issue like this everybody passing the Buck it called (were screw;ed )and they know this, its like giving you the finger. no legal recourse and no one is responsible, they have a whole lot of people who know this THEY DON'T CARE  

Hi Frank, 

It's still worth a shot, maybe the media coverage will force them to reassess how Caranua works. They fear the media, they are trying to save face of their religious orders. The more publicity, the better.
We may be screwed, but then again.....we might not be, there's always hope.

Kind Regards,

Hi Everone.

All are welcome  no exclusions.

Rob.  thank you for your ongoing hard work and effort especially during this time I wish your Wife a speedy recovery.

My Draft is almost ready, when completed I will send it on to the Minister of Education and of course post it on Shame of Ireland .       All ideas and suggestions are most welcome. Please no swearing or abusive language.  We don't have to stoop to their level.  (The Religious) I mean.
