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!!!!!!!!!!!

At least that way we would have the full recourse of the law in the event of any issue, rather than the protected status the current admin enjoy, 

Absolutely Michael.  It Has To Be Legal And Survivor's Interests Protected.

The fund should not be in the hands of the State they  couldn't run a jumble sale. However, it should be run by trustees like you would have for a will and that could be a legal team with at least four member of which should be Survivors to protect our interest. All monies spent to date should be replaced back into the fund. Barbara

Barbara: Equal Amounts Of Monies For All Applicants Regards Individual  Stated Needs?

Michael, could it be done? (a legal team) x

Some Survivors Might Put In For More And Be Disappointed If Amounts Of Monies Allowed Are The Same For All.

I dont see wht not, if its our fund we should pick the mangement of our fund, if survivors think its a good idea perhaps we could discuss it more, no other group would not be given a say in the management of their own funds to their advantage and ensure all members are looked after fairly, with dignity, like a human being.

Jack  i think if l survivors  were part of the day to day running of caranua we could make sure that every one is treated right 

Fair Enough. Hope Others Here Agree And Want Pursue.

Hi All, here is the email of someone that might listen to us all if we all pop him an email Joe Duffy loves following scammer and all that sort of thing on Liveline on RTE 1 Radio - you can email the show at - no guarantees but worth a go. Barbara

Thanks Barbara!

Hi All,

Frances Harrington is a Board Member of Caranua - Board Members need  to be held responsible for the decisions made on our behalf. Board Members are the actual  caretakers of Caranua and our Fund and the buck stop's with them and they are the real employers of the CEO and Staff. She and the other four former residents of industrial abuse should know better and look after us.

Frances is a former resident who holds a BA (hons) in Community Studies from NUI Maynooth. She is a member of Fethard Convent Hall Committee in Tipperary which provides activities and services to the local community - here is the website information with a contact information page.  take care Barbara
