The Shame of Ireland
Responsibility for the appalling cruelty suffered by inmates of Institutions lies squarely at the door of the State and Religious Orders. It may be harder for us to face the facts of history that the government, the Catholic Church and society as a whole were complicit in the institutional abuse of thousands of children.
Are the people of this country going to separate themselves from the on-going abuses by the Church and the State as they attempt to deny us our rights to proper compensation and justice.

all i know and understand and experience. not all the guilty involved are yet dead. political partys must be made to account for their part in child abuse as well as the media and the press. there can be no peace in Ireland otherwise. the good were put down by the bad and the survivors have the power now.
Paddy Doyle's book hardly does justice to the appalling conditions and treatment of inmates in Industrial Schools. Why do people keep harping on about it? There are far more revealing books written about conditions and abuses in the State Church system. To get a flavor of the system in the 1930-40s try reading 'Song of a Raggedy Boy' in addition to one of my own books. Too many of us where/are nobodies who have passed away or are the last of the forgotten ones.
