There was no library at Daingean

but the boys were allowed to read any

comics they might have till ten o'clock.

Then half the lights were switched off

and everybody was required to go to

sleep and a civilian night-watchman

took over from Brother Stack and continued

the pacing and the vigilance for

the rest of the night.

The day began at Daingean Reformatory with the shrill
sound of the nightwatchman's hand-bell as he paraded up and
down the centre of the dormitory shouting, "Come on, wakey
wakey! Get out of those beds and get dressed before Brother
Stack gets in!"

Brother Stack was .he Kerryman in charge of the
dormitories and the wash-house and his round face was
perpetually flushed with anger. He would arrive to take over
from the civilian nightwatchman at 7.30 a.m. By then we
would all have our beds made and would be lined up ready for
the next phase of the never-changing daily ritual.

Thank you Jack for making me a member,I will try and help others as much as I can.We are stronger together,and we have a voice.Always know your enemies weakness,in this case it's money.No one should give them a penny in church until they right this wrong.We must not allow them to make us victims,and hit them where it hurts.We should never again stay in the shadows feeling the shame which abuse inflicts on us.Bless you all and stay strong for all those who have passed and give them their voice too.We need to find out has this money been fairly distributed and why some caseworkers are bullying and arrogant.With the big stick of the threat the fund is finishing in 2017.
Thanks again Jack.

Thanks Jack.  Wish I could get your orangutan to you.  I was thinking about that just today.  e-mail me your physical address again at and I will attempt a different delivery service.  It's special or I wouldn't bother twice.  

Tomorrow I am having another stand on the Steps of City Hall if you want to TWEET it cause I have 12 banners of children who passed and need 12 people to hold them.  1pm, Monday May 15th Steps of City Hall in NYC: (Jenny McCarthy said she would join us too!).
