It's typical ,all the millions those so called services for survivors have abused in our name ,we the real victims have been pushed out of any decisions ,in fact we have been Totally ignored and bully'ed , We on Paddy's site and this site have been left to help each other . without any so called Group leaders being involved or so called services for survivors ,who took millions from the government out of OUR compansation package Money which belongs to US SURVIVORS? NOT THE IRISH GOVERNMENT..Like I said as long as they recieve their huge funding They don't and NEVER were in the least interested in US THE REAL VICTIMS. I tried several times to ask for a copy of an old photo taken in the 1950s with my Sister in ,she is and has been unwell and would love to see a photo of herself as a child ,But the person who holds on to that photo was NOT in Goldenbridge during our time in the earlyer years before it changed WILL NOT EVEN ACHKNOWLEDGE MY nor my sisters REQUEST for a copy which would mean so much to a very sick survivor .she could see she was once a child. So there you have it. It is up to us to take control away from those who only abuse us further ie >false services for survivors. Stop giving our rightful  compansation away to those Groups . It is Survivors Legal and rightful compansation due to US. I was told by a promenent Lawyer that we should have all been advised to take our cases to the HIGH COURT that we didn't need Lawyers for the redress, that was something seperate. Shame on the Irish Government. They Further caused Abuse on the very Vulnerable Survivors. They have NO legal right to now Insist they hold on to our rightful Compansation into THEIR Statuary Trust Fund . That way we rhe Real Victims will never see nor benifit from that , we are all in our later years now and have been trying to get JUSTICE for many years , The religious want to compansate us and have handed over the moneys for that BUT to the corupt government who insist on keeping onto that money. HOW WRONG ANF CORUPT IS THAT; How can they sleep ?????

I heard the Government held SECRET meetings with a couple of those self appointed so called group leaders about what they wish to happen to our compansation ,WHAT A DOWNRIGHT CHEEK. of course they want THE STATUARY TRUST FUND, that way they have their huge funding secured for their own Benifit alone. surley this is ILLEGAL;
