Please contact Conall O'Fartharta at the Irish Examiner he is the Senior Journalist and is keen to hear from survivors who have been mistreated by Caranua, if you have letters refusing your request for what is rightfully yours let him know this is our oppurtunity to expose what is going on.  I have been BARRED from phoning Caranua by M. Higgins, one reason being I demanded answers to questions.  How is this treatment any different from our ROBBED childhood days. The difference now being we are adults and will not be SILENCED.

Im not sure will find out for you, i honestly think we are starting to get through to them and its because of people like you who sent the emails, put up with the endless refusals and kept fighting, so fair play to you and everyone on here. Michael
