The Shame of Ireland

The Shame of Ireland

hi. I have only just joined this website, thanks to the invite from Rob,and am feeling my way with this post.

Only a few of my posts are specifically about Ireland.

As child abuse knows no boundaries, there may be a useful crossover of information. Please contact me with any information that you thinnk is relevant no matter how small.

One way I  could maybe help with Irish Information, is I have some access, through contacts, to some Irish Court Appeals which may contain useful information, which I publish redacted of sensitive information about victims. If anyone knows of an abuser that you think has appealed or might have, email me in confidence on and I will check for you.
