"And that is the start. Then there was the rosary beads with the wire cutting through our fingers.The glu from paper bags the baskets woven and the sewing of clothes for the poor africans.A sick joke compaired to our situation."
"Names gone. hair cut short a number given and no family contact. That was the way the catholic Church cared for children. from that day on we were sinners and thay were there to punish us daily.In every way thay wanted.Pain from the sticks hunger…"

Hi Pauline .. So your in Tipp too .. Now there's bragging rights now that Liam McCarthy is home !!
I am pretty new to all this Blogging stuff , I am a more of a hands on sort of person , I leave all the technical stuff to everybody else.
I have a Facebook account, If you would like to know what I'm getting up to.my name is Christy J Walters ! I would be delighted to send you afriend request .
but i have always wondered where thay trained these nuns and priests. and was it a method. because we all have the same kind of memories. it cant be an accident that the crazy ones stayed in ireland. and others were fit to be sent to Africa.
Pauline even though you were only 4 years old and savagely battered and tortured by the Nuns you still had more Intelligence and Humanity in your little finger that the whole Catholic World. I was forced to watch them Torture you after they ripped your cloths off I saw the TWO EVIL SADISTIC NUNS BOTH ATTACK YOU WITH FROTH COMING OUT OF THEIR MOUTH'S BOTH LASHING YOU with sticks All because I told the Doctor in Harcourt St Clinic what they were doing to us ,they took it out on you, I will never forget that awful day they the Nun's picked me up from Harcourt St back to Goldenbridge the Nun turned to me and said marching me to the Rec she said THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT they dragged you into the middle of the rec by the ear shouting and screaming and beating you both Nuns using large Sticks on your little skinny body there was nothing I could do about it if I cried and they saw me They would have killed you (and me)so I knew I musen't cry. they Damaged your ears to such an extent you have no ballance and keep falling down apart from all the scars you have not only on your body but in your mind. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU how you survived is a miracle . and they did not manage as much as they tried to give you brain damage . my heart hurts I see imiges like photos what they used to do to you. YOU ARE WONDERFUL AND VERY SPECIAL .
