Hi Friends

Like you I too am a survivor of sexual abuse while in the care of the state. Today I have been left disabled with many medical problems from an abusive childhood back in Ireland. Many of us have been left with nothing but disability benefits from the abuse we suffered in Ireland. I myself have had to go on disability benefit because I had no medical coverage here in America. I live on less than five hundred dollars per month which does not cover my bills. I received…

Ken - Hi - we lost touch on FB - perhaps it was when a Martina Doyle requested my friendship and as she had many similar FB friends especially on Awake Ireland site that I somehow accepted - next you were gone - I realised afterwards that this could be THAT sister - I never knew her name - I since unfriended her. I raised concerns for many last year with the Tullamore Show committee as the Newtons are involved with the Show - too many missing people or those died by "suicide" around Tullamore with some connection to those involved with Tullamore Show - I raised concerns for the Doyle Bros...Fiona Pender and many "deaths" in Tullamore Hospital...one a dear friend of my brother's January 30 2016...he was not yet 62...I note there is a latest blog post on this site stating a published poet Connie Roberts has been asked to attend Tullamore Show as someone who suffered home family abuse in the Midlands - I do not know Connie but she seems to have gone on and become a successful poet and is now being honoured by Tullamore Show as an exceptional Offaly person...if only Connie Roberts knew the still ongoing corruption in Tullamore today mostly covered up by Barry Cowen FF Marcella Corcoran FG and indeed those involved in the Tullamore Show...take care...Teri
