The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

Such Beauty of the Golden Harp The symbol of our Island and Her People , I always believe it is disloyal and a form of theft when I see that ancient Golden symbol used to sell alcolol that resulted for many drowned in alcholic misery and acute unhappness for not only for those who suffer from alcholism but also their families. The Symbol was also Abused by those who Abused the children of the Island for so long.

You don't just adopt a country's national Symbol for business purpose's  It was not the state's possession but the Nation's Possession,  Just  as  the children of  Ireland were not The State  nor the Roman Catholic's Church's Possession.

welcome. i nearly got mixed up with guiness! all black with white top!   the government of the day must be held to account for all children in care whether home or school or prison. it is amazing that a starving child can be detained for years for stealing a loaf of bread to eat!

What sort of Monsters would scream in hateful rage at a young child  holding  a large stick about to beat the child black and blue roaring into the child's face You are the Devils child I will make you wish you were never Born. all we learned in the Industrial School  was total Fear that if we survived it in one piece that Fear lives on in our adult lives,It shows itself in one way or another ,
