The Irish Model of sex work legislation apparently consists in fining Client and ramping up penalties for sex works (who are supposed to be "exploited victims, remember?) to two seperate ways to be imprisoned on the first offence, which is actually harsher than the USA:https://mymythbuster.wordpress.com/the-covert-recriminalistation-of-irish-street-workers/Thankfully even the best of bullying…See More

The Vanishing in Irish Institutions

I have just realised something I want to share, in case it is important, and I am terribly afraid it might be.The worst abuses in Irish adult institutions (mother and baby homes, Magdalene Laundries, Mental Hospitals, other) began in the early 20s and ended in the 70s.I have just realised that many of the adults affected may not have had birth certs because of the custom house fire. Illegitimate children would not even have baptismal records to cover that.We know that babies were being…See More

"I don't think a person who doesn't realise you get fired from the Vatican for saying Christianity is fake can be much of an expert on anything... ...ut he took GREAT care of the BMW factory in WWII and that must count for SOMETHING..."

"Well I am an atheist with no views on the veracity, or not, of Christianity... ...but it does sorta tend to shed light on why he was politely handed his P45, doesn't it? "

Hi Gaye welcome to the Shame Of Ireland.

Hi Gale,

Is there a way for members to share direct email contact outside the control of the S of I web site??????

As I believe it could only help if two or more have a disagreement and hashed it out between themselves instead of getting into the "comment Ring" with Rob as the Ref...... It just never seems to end on a good note when the Bull n. Cow is "in public!!

Besides, we don't have enough members to lose even one....

                                                                                        Drina.

p.s.

    If you care to have my email? By this I give permission to Rob to give it to you.
