On the 18th of August 2020 I paid £100 towards keeping the website up and running.

I was going to let it lapse and then it would have disappeared, but I thought better of it!

So what do we do with it?

What direction does it take?…

Hello robert I am relatively new to all that is happening about the trust fund but was told that I could get help for my Grandson when he chooses to go on to either further education or University, but i do not think the irish government should be doing things without talking to us the SURVIVORS I feel we should be involved. I spent 7 years in a hell hole they call the convent of mercy but was shown anything but mercy.

hello i wish we -the victims of ireland could join in a picket of the irish state embassies and trade missions located especially in united kingdom and u s a and brought our injustices out into the bright sunlight of public domain -the public at large must know ,only then will we feel we -survivors have protected irelands future generations of children. they are all vunerable . future victims for the evil beaurachy waiting in the wings.

Hi Robert

Thank you. The Add Comment button on Andrew Brennan's blog wasn't working yesterday.

I found out about your website by following the link on the late Charlie's ("The Hare") Maguire's obituary published in The Irish Times newspaper entited "Victim of 'Irish gulag' who spent most of his life in State custody":

Hi Robert

Apologies - a correction! I read the obituary of Charlie ("The Hare") Maguire in The Irish Times. I then Googled for more information and found the following political forum, and this was where I found the link to The Shame of Ireland website:
