i would prefair if caranua was closed down and sack mary higgans this is what i asked for when i went to pac so 

far i didn't see any thing come out of pac that we didn't hear before . mary higgans wears many faces she has one

for every day of the week . apart from the fact that we got pac to look into the running of caranua and they found

many flaws i don't think this will change caranua .for proper change they would have to close caranua and i dont

see this happening the fact is the government don't care about us mary higgans may have got a scalding from pac

but she is and will always be a bad bitch thats why she got the job . the government know we won't be around in

years to come some of us won't be here next year this suits there agenda so lets batten down the hatches and 

see what comes out of the inqurey into caranua and mary higgans ..james fox,

No problem Jack, thanks for your concern. I guess Canada is out of the way for them, when I had any thing done to the house I always gave them two or three quotes, they always picked the dearest ? for the life of me I cannot figure that out, now they tell me I've had my 15,000, I don't mind that if it helps the others among us, but something smells with this Mary Higgins. to have my teeth cleaned as well as the x-rays cost's $300.00 Canadian but I will pay for that eventually. The last time I fell late March I ruptured the tendon in my left arm, cut my eye in two places as my glasses broke when my face hit the ground, fractured a rib in my chest area and my right hand was badly cut, not better yet but getting there, now I use walking sticks, I pay medical monthly hospital, doctors etc. no help from Caranua there either. If you get a chance look up Glin and what is developing there on what the brothers tried to hide, Tom Wall one of us has exposed the papers he hid from them that they wanted destroyed.

Out Of Sight Out Of Mind Seanie.  The Dearest Quote? Not A First Surely?!  You Have A Story!

Here too we find a lad from Newcastle West “found destitute” whose mother was unable to support him. He was, the records state, illegitimate but his mother was ordered to pay half a crown a week towards his upkeep in Glin in the 1940s.

With each entry, the child’s height, eye and hair colour, complexion,  are entered into the book along with education status.

The entry for one boy, whose parents were dead and who was found begging in Limerick reads as follows:  3’10”, slender, dark complexion, dark hair, blue eyes, reads and writes a little. He was, the book tells us, “discharged to friends”.

Another record book tells of illness: scarlet fever, bronchitis, ulcer of the leg, pneumonia, an outbreak of measles
