The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

I was warned to keep my mouth shut or else ,but I cannot rest until I tell about it as it still gives me nightmares it happened in St Vincents Goldenbridge when a Nun sent me upstairs to collect something as I walked through the Babies Dormatory a so called lay Staff who grew up in GB was sitting on a Bed I stopped and looked at her as her skirt was up her legs wide open BUT I saw Little Bill aged 4 up against her she had him pressed up against her Virginia he had no bottons on He looked around at me his terrorised look in his eyes was total Fear  pleading for help will never leave me but I was so youngand an Inmate didn't know how to help him and was threathened by that Child abuser she was going to tell the Nuns things to I was supposed to have done so they would Murder me without doubt  I was so frightened of her she was Mad and agressive , I still have that Horrific image on my mind the poor little boy he disappeared from Goldenbridge after that and I worry what happened to him after that he didn't stand a chance for any safe peaceful Life , I wanted to Tell of this but was not allowed a voice and warned by the so called Group leaders and their friends they were protecting I was warned in words to get myself back to England , as I was Trouble,  other shocking abuses I saw was hushed up with the help of those Groups working with and Funded by the very state we were trying to get justice from.   Bill was in St Vincents Goldenbridge since he was a tiny baby,

absolutely shocking for both you and little Bill. May the evil wicked piece of shit burn in hell.

I always wonder where they sent Bill and did he survive to Manhood, I dread to think and imaging he went on being forced to suffer terrible abuses,

Yes indeed a number of inmates became staff. Never wanted to leave. Children disappeared too. Political parties condoned child abuse.

refer the trials and reports on ferryhouse , St Josephs , two mile bridge , clonmel seems to have happened all over , sexual frustrations in Ireland were relieved within the privacy of the homes' walls , until the secret got out ?

Absolutely yes Kenneth!  Government of the day controlled and condoned.

I also wonder what became of the Newborn Baby left by the gate, with a note pined on his knitted jacket,

They were free to do whatever they wanted with other people's children.  Government of the day did not care.

us children who were incarsarated in Brutal Concentration Camps in Ireland those who reached adulthood by a miracle then felt forced to escape out of Ireland our own Country to try to block out the fear of been caught as the RC State had evil Eyes everywhere But has it not accurd to everyone that those who had no choice were forced to become Stateless, having lost their Heritage, Siblings, Country, Familys , in fact the RC State destroyed so many lives that will never be forgotten the damage is to Great.

Perfectly expressed Geraldine!

"burn in hell", OMG , etc whatever they have done to us   I am amazed that , we , me included have had the cathechism /religion burned into our Pssyche that even our responses contain the phrases given to us by those we would gladly whip from cobh to drogheda at every step of the way and over every hurdle they put in our way to stop us discovering our birthright ( and passports )
