Many thanks, Jack! I hope you're doing well - I'll be in touch about the Abbey Theatre scheme in case you know any survivors who would like to get together and put in an application...

Hi Mark  my name is Rob I am well known to Rob Northall on here and any others too, this has been a great website for survivors to be able to have a voice. as we are all left totally frustrated in many ways than one Intimidation Abuse Most Petronising, Decietful, Lying Cheating coniving Heartless Careless Misleading Misinforming Trickery misguidence annoying BULLYING condesending avoiding all issues Survivors had with the Education Ministers office not just the one Ministerbt the whole Minister of Education Office NEEDS A TOTALY CLEAN OUT all Ministers should be named and shamed I have every single email to all of these Culprits in their sheer brutal arrogance and determination to refuse any support for young children who were thrown into the same basket as all Relatives I believe i have know and EXPOSED every trick in the book so much i fear what is now to happen to me. I am left Physically and mentally out in the cold so to speak I am denied wefare needs i have never been asked regarding my serious health problems of which i have been hospital ized i have had only one visit from the hospital since my Major heart surgery they have not even bothered this year to contact me with my usual appointment  basically i feel like a PATIENT LEFT TO ROT

Hello, Rob and thanks for your comment. That's certainly an appalling situation to be in. Dealing with officialdom seems to have been a nightmare experience for yourself and so many others.... If you want to send me any more information, you can send it to me here. I hope you can manage to get some help and health support locally, one way or another. Is there anyone you can contact who can act as a go-between with the hospital and agencies who might be able to get them to act and help you out?

If you're in Cork, is there anybody that can offer help, especially at this time of year? I do hope they can get their Christmas spirit going at least on your behalf...

I'll be in touch with you again soon....

Hi Mark, I was in a place with my siblings I can't share names to protect the people in the family that still haven't shared their experiences with their own families. I'm out 50 years and just turned 56 this year its been a constant fight and we as survivors are still been abused everyday by the people that are supposed to be helping us. But I say to those new abusers of our trust and governance "I will stand up against those who are against me, I will be strong and will not be broken by the very people hired to help me , I will never allow another person to hurt me again, if the want to fight survivors again bring it on"
