Hi Jack, Rob Northall and all of our kinds warrior class. So, wrote a little rhyme on Facebook that amazingly delighted our kind and from the Bootlickers, a catholic attack. Which I repelled in true Victim/Survivor style. These idiotic murderous,idolitors, should try taking their own atmedicine medicine that they dished out to us for up to 14 years in these terrible Irish Roman Catholic prisons. I fortunately have enough hate to go around, for all 14,000 surviving Victims . Also , Cathriona is sending my Rhyme re Quinns Sins, to all the TDs just to stir them up. As I always saw keep throwing the mud, and any port in a storm, for a few seconds of respite. Great to be on board friends and ready for battle. Their cap is 2,000 years in the making, hopefully a couple of years from final extinction. Oliver.

Hi Geraldine, lovely to hear from you sister. Yes, it can be nice here in Blue Mountains. Heavy frost, at moment, but by ten AM, it will be a nice 17c and Sydney 19 to 21c. Not bad for mid winter. But summer can be, Ouch!. Have been in Northern Queensland in summer and was thermally assaulted by 45 in the shade and almost 50c in the sun. Like the fires of hell . They feel cold in 36c in their winter. So, what's new on the Funding farce and that crooked Mr Quinns Sins.

Dennis and PJ hines Tommy sweeny. and a lot more I remembered when I met some old boys at the Aislinn centre in Dublin. We should keep in touch Oliver. mabey exchange email addresses..

Hi Oliver, I was friends with Austin Kelly in Artane. I just missed him by a few days when he was last over here. If you are talking about John hogan who was institutionalised in cork and now lives in San Diego California. I know him very well. He is a great friend of my brother who lives close to him in san Diego. In fact I spent quite a bit of time with him last month while I was out there. I see him frequently on my yearly trips out there. What a small world.I recently had an award from the redress board as a late applicant. Take care Oliver. Speak soon.

Eamonn, what a crazy place Artane was. I still can't actually believe that we were actually present in that awful, unlawful hellhole. Were we just having a bad dream, or what. Where was the duty of care. Even the poultry and farm animals were treated better. Do you live in Ireland, Eamonn. Keep in touch. Oliver. Ps there are a few Artaners on tis site.

Hi John Hogan, I believe that we might have been in Artane at the same time. We were both friends of John Brown, the self taught maths wizard. What a super intelligent person he was, and his brilliance was totally ignored by the Slave Masters. Wonder what happen to him. ? Hope you live are the John Hogan. Oliver.
