The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

One of our homes owned by my Daddy. we also owned a shop next door, we often lived there when we were not in Dublin.when we were very young , my family owned a Farm not far away and supplied shops with goods .So the Irish State took it upon themselves to make up their LIE that we children were Destitute ,to force us into Slavery to work for Nothing in their Reformatories. We were NOT Destitute in any way. I truly believe it was something often said cruely by the Hateful Nuns I had a filthy Protestant Name.A Black Protestant with Black Blood, they shouted this at me so often I believed my blood was black. I't truly shows those Nun's were totally Ignorant Hateful and Stupid ,they really made sure they made my life as a child Hard as possible .The result was I hated my name for many years even as an Adult and changed it often.

I never told anyone ,not even a hint not a soul. my children didn't even know I was Irish.  my grandaughter found out by typing in my name on google and up came a disgusting page someone had written about me as a child in GB on Alliance Surport a member of my family phoned the owner of the site and asked him Politely to remove it he was asked more than once it's still there ,All I can say the person who wrote such  cruel rubbish about me WAS NOT IN THE INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL, AND NEVER MET ME THERE.   I WANT IT REMOVED.

That is a photo of the house bought for my daddy when he got married to my Mum. A present from my Grandfather had lots of land and a field out the back, along with outbuildings.
