James Pollard

Anyone had messages from this guy James Pollard asking him to email him privately off the site??

Tried to comment on his page to ask him, he is moderating comments.

Think we have a scammer in our midst?

Please report anyone who behaves like this, and I will boot them immediately.

'Will this be Opportunity Lost 2.0?': State must 'learn from mistakes' of past redress schemes

THE IRISH STATE has, to date, failed to operate a redress scheme that puts survivors’ needs first, according to an expert.

Paddy Doyle

Paddy Doyle is dead. He authored the book The God Squad and it'll get a mention in the news. TDs and thier ilk will be rolled out to say a few words but at the time of the books publication in the late-80s no legislator read the book. It took until 2009 for survivors stories/testimony to be acknowledged. RIP Paddy.

So what do we do with it?

What direction does it take?…

The fact that the Groups who all claimed to run Services for the survivors were all getting Funding from the very State responsible for the Abuses of babies and Children locked up in Brutal Indistrial Schools That says to anyone with an ounce of Intelligence was a  Currupt set up using Groups to cover the Crimes agains children ,even turning people against each other by infighting so the Abusers were Free to walk away,
