Draft Letter for your Support see Live Vote

"I would like to Ratify the Letter to the Charities Section,Revenue
Commissioners, with Regard to Right of Place and the Aislin Centre"

Charities Section
Revenue Commissioners,
Government Offices,
Co. Tipperary.

Dear Sir or Madam
We are extremely concerned about the lack of Accountability of Irish
Charities and the Broad Scope of Organisations that can receive
“Charitable Status” and Tax Exemption?

We are especially concerned about 2 Charities that purport to Represent Survivors of the Industrial School System!

They are Namely the “Right of Place Chy No 14581” and the ”Aislinn Centre Chy 13114”
Our concerns are:

The lack of proof supplied to the H.S.E. “Vis a Vis” the “per capital”
Funding that these organisations received without proper verification of
the Membership they were Funded for. After all this is Irish Tax Payers
Money and the HSE has no interest in Accounting for it?

I would like to draw you attention to the following:

“Meanwhile, it has emerged that the HSE has given at least €234,000 in
funding to Right of Place this year, despite saying it would not give
further monies until issues within the organisation had been sorted out.
The Department of Education gave the charity €16,000 this year.
Between 2001 and 2009 four Irish survivor groups received funding from
the department totalling €2.1 million, half of which went to Right of

Note to the accounts of the AISLINN CENTRE“
What is clear from the accounts is that for two years, and for part of a
third year, money received could only be reported as having being
advanced to directors. It is possible that this money was channeled to
previously existing organizations and used in their work. Otherwise it
is hard to see how the expenditure could have been justified, as the
company had no other staff or premises. Whether a similar situation
existed for the rest of the periods of accounts from 2003 to 2008, it is
not possible to say from the information given in these accounts.”
Nial Mc Gahon, Consultants. A S M HORWATH

What Job Title or Position have Mr. Barry and Christine Buckley held?
What was their employment status?
How could they afford to live?

With regard to this I would like to draw your attention to the Following:

Q. Can a Director/Trustee be paid as director/trustee?
A. In general no payments should be paid to Directors/Trustees other
then out of pocket expenses. Specifically Directors/Trustees are not to
be paid for holding such an office.

We would like you to hold an enquiry into this?

Well great letter lets hope we get the answers Rob good man yourself.

Now years have come gone and settled we are all going to see as the filth resurfaces just how they did the dirt.

All Groups must answer and those who lead those Groups must provide all information requested and explain how they were funded and how who where when and why they were funded.

The way ROPSC started and finished so far needs to be investigated for sure.

What happened with this, i see right of place still going with there revamped website, they disgust me, i seen on one incarnation of their website where they were looking for a monthly payment from survivors in order to ring them.

And why did Mr Noel C Barry try to set this up asa Company and not as a support group? he tried to change the name Right of place this Group is now dealing in other things besides who own this building as Mr Barry often stipulated Survivors own this building 100-101 Lower Glanmire rd

we need a new letter to the Powers that be on how Right of Place was taken andthen the caranua fund forced upon us all
