Till hearts, scythed and asunder,

deaden, stiffen, nerves shriven.

Imagine that! As a…

Paddy Doyle

Paddy Doyle is dead. He authored the book The God Squad and it'll get a mention in the news. TDs and thier ilk will be rolled out to say a few words but at the time of the books publication in the late-80s no legislator read the book. It took until 2009 for survivors stories/testimony to be acknowledged. RIP Paddy.

Will All this Disappear FOREVER???

On the 18th of August 2020 I paid £100 towards keeping the website up and running.

I was going to let it lapse and then it would have disappeared, but I thought better of it!

So what do we do with it?

What direction does it take?…

Group 's,

The fact that the Groups who all claimed to run Services for the survivors were all getting Funding from the very State responsible for the Abuses of babies and Children locked up in Brutal Indistrial Schools That says to anyone with an ounce of Intelligence was a  Currupt set up using Groups to cover the Crimes agains children ,even turning people against each other by infighting so the Abusers were Free to walk away,

Pennys from Heaven Ha Ha

No Doubt certain people who were never in Industrial Schools will be jumping on the Bandwagon again pretending to run services for the survivors > They do NOT and never have.  I could name one who I never trusted and rightly so,

Pennys from Heaven Ha Ha

I heard certain people who run services went to the high court and awarded huge amounts , they did not advise the real vulnerable about going to the High Court instead they told survivors to go to certain Solicitors and were told the Lawyers were doing it for free the survivor would not have to pay, That was wicked and a fat Lie they were only looking after themselves , I heard of so many  vulnerable real survivors who had spent their Childhoods locked up in Brutal Dark Sadistic Evil…
