The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

24 years ago I asked all the so called Insolent  services for survivors for help in Tracing my Sibling who has been missing and is still missing But  as they all were busy polishing their rusty Halo's having heard from their Criminal Mate's in the Church , Government and Lawyers Offices,  that their was some money been arranged supposed to go as a gesture to the survivors from the Government and the Roman Catholic Church as an Apology, and them saying SORRY for all your Loses and terrible suffering  and damage we caused to you all  when you were babies and young children that we so Neglected and destroyed your childhoods ,and left you all Traumatised ,Hurt, Damaged . Medically, Mentally Physically  ,Self appointed so called leaders  of so called Services rushed in with hands outstretched for funding as they blessed themselves with the BLOOD of the Babies and children who are the ones who Suffered , They congratulate themselves that  they are fortunate to have found a easy way of making plenty of money out of the suffering of those who as babies and children  who were so abused in Industrial schools who are the most VULNERABLE as Adults easy to manipulate and walk over and Bully by the Dishonest Greedy, Ignorant,  people who have no Conscience at all ,Survivors have been Dying from Sickness'es from having been Starved ,Beaten, Neglected, Flogged, worked until they as children nearly passed out which many did,  , These are the  survivors who LOST ,having had everything Stolen from them ,Their Country, Their, Home's ,Root's, Names, Ages,  History, Sibling's. Mothers, Father's, Grandparents, Aunts Uncles Cousin's   most never got any of it Back and always felt alone and had no feeling of belonging to anywhere or anything even if they married there has always been a huge empty Space a massive Vacuum in their Lives that can Never be Filled in this life while the Greedy congratulate themselves having got Rich , Some Survivors  managed to Brave going back to Ireland after many years in Silence and Isolation  only to find it was made obvious they were not wanted back in their OWN COUNTRY , Noone wanted to Know ,the Bullies were in Abundance with no thought that what trauma the returning survivor was suffering indeed many were suffering from Sick,ness even CANCER, Heart problems and for many it was their last chance to return to what once was their Country to find whatever they were looking for , The Greedy insensitive lined up against the most Vulnerable who  had fled abroad never once admitting  where they grew up not even to their family's many cases even that they were Irish ,for the Dark Brutal Nightmares of childhood still lived locked up at the back of their minds for many years ,and Yes they expected some form of help searching for Siblings, Form,s, Birth Cert's ,Any extended Family members still in Ireland ,Looking for their ROOT's , Looking for a feeling of belonging > All that was found was Hostility unfriendly and plenty of Bullies ,  What Goes Around Comes Around it will come back 10 fold There has only been ONE Good Person in Ireland who received  NO funding yet really Helped survivors ,he is John Barrett at the Ballagh ,New Ross,A Good and Caring Man.  , As for all the rest who claim to run services for survivors They are sick Con Merchant Bullies MONEY is their GOD they only cared about their Funding and are still getting Funding FOR WHAT????.

Well said Geraldine, they stole our lives and then they stole our life story by way of a gagging order.

Geraldine this is the most honest statement I have read concerning survivors. Sad to say survivors will only have peace when they are dead No County No roots No family refugees that nobody want or will admit exist. But we do exist and it is our duty to make sure that our suffering was not in vain
