well said maurice right of place is rotten to the core,why dont they give any information on the people in there,why ,because their are 2 retired getting pensions from dept of education ,vec,who is the adim,hiding behind closed doors why what have they 2 hide ,this must be sorted they are all gaining big time from the backs of survivors,the outreach officer annmarie is driving around in a new car she got last year ,500wages weekly all expences paid,and she has no right to be there ,she should not have access to survivors private files ,it is well known she has breeched confidentualy on a few times,as for francis treanor what the hell is he doing there he mustnt be much of a barrister if he is running rop,just because he is a barrister they all think his word is law,what makes me sick is noel c barry still has some say in there ,i again ask who is the admin and on whose advice was this person put their .this is a disgrace we need this to stop and get this information out to all survivors and shut them down now .

Very true Sean, they are NOT going to tell Survivors the truth. Though on their Website, (Whenever it is online) As a matter of fact, they DONT tell Survivors at all.

They talk about Honesty and Transparency all over their webpage, but they NEVER practice it. Oh yes, it's all very well to Boast about these two important issues, but it's very very different to exercise them.

I am still waiting (As Usual) for a response to (4) very valid questions i asked this group to answer. But i KNOW only too well they will NEVER answer them, because they know that by doing so they would be shooting themselves in the foot.

Gangsters, every one of them.

Hi Siobhan, i saw it somewhere before, and thought it had some sort of meaning, thats all.. Thought it may have been some type of code or something. Nothing more. I was being curious, and nothing more. Now i am enlightened. Thanks. Mossie.
