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.

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":
