Hello fellow prisoners, The latest numbers I see regarding payouts to survivors in the UK are; 6,234.215 to 569 survivors I don't know if that is pounds or euro's as I do not trust my own math, how much does each survivor receive, I get 109,564 that must be wrong as my education stopped at age 14 to be put to work in Glin.

Hello John,

We are still stuck up here in the snow instead of having happy hours in Arizona. Peg has a little medical problem with her blood count. Wishing we were in Wellton, may get to meet you one day. I am still in shock with Jimmys death we were very close over the internet, miss him a lot.

Merry Christmas to you and your family and the new year be even merrier.

It would be brilliant to have some kind of protest maybe a walk from the Dail to the offices of Caranua maybe family members might help if survivors are unable!! Barbara
