Irishman Michael O'Brien spent 8 years in an Irish religious industrial school in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. He was put there after his mother died in 1942. The Irish state took Michael and his seven siblings away from their father and put them all into state institutions after declaring them destitute. They were all given criminal records because they were labelled as destitutes. Within days of arriving at Ferryhouse, Michael was raped by a brother belonging to the Rosminian orders. He endured eight years of ongoing rape, beatings, starvations and abuse at the Industrial school. He was forced to work as a child slave by the Rosminian fathers. In this video he tells Irish journalist Karen Coleman his story.
i like the very last thing said
Agree with you Jack, but just looking at these ,and listening to their stories, there is one feature that stands out for me, as Children we were all sent to these Gulags ,into the "LOVING CARE OF THE RELIGIOUS"only to discover the truth of this so called "Loving,", they Loved to Rape you, they Loved to Batter you, they loved to Starve you, they Loved to Humiliate you, they Loved their power over you, they Loved to intimidate you, This is exactly what amounted to the Tender Loving Care of the Religious of so called Holy Ireland and the disgusting teachings of the Roman Catholic Church!
yes it was all the other way around. like care was abuse.
the church is an imposter
political partys in government tend to be totally different in opposition
