Another Irish White Slave dies - 22 August 2014

Another Irish White Slave

Another Irish White Slave..

Being laid to Rest

In a Communal Grave

Of the Sisters of Our

From the unholy Hand

Perhaps Told Again

And Again that No one

Wants her and No one

Cared - Perhaps, Perhaps,

We may ask and

We may Plead...

Let us not forget...There is no Love in Sean Ross Abbey

I sit here tonight just 20 odd miles from Roscrea from Sean Ross

Abbey...Despite growing up about 12 miles from there I never knew the

human pain that existed behind those walls...Nuns were Holy women and
