Questions Survivors would like to ask the Public Accounts Committee Regarding Caranua

I think its only fair that Survivors should be able to ask for an Inquiry into Caranua from the Public Accounts Committee?

Its fair to say that using a simple management tool and a calculator that this runaway Train could have been predicted Months  and Months ago!

A Straight line Graph shows a Steady Trend!

A Graph that takes a rapid upturn is less easy to predict

As you can see a Competent Manager would have predicted this early on and gone back to the Minister asking for more funds!

The Steepest part of the Graph is December 2014 to February 2015, this would have rung alarm bells for me!

So now they want to Cap Applicants could they have seen this coming?

As you can see the answer is a resounding Yes!

All Data is Taken from Caranua's  own Website!

I am Deeply indebted to ROBERT for getting me to think about and analyse these figures!

I'm sure he has his own observation to add?

As I'm sure you all will?

I look forward to your Comment and Questions for the Public Account Committee

Robert:   Guess There Will Be No Truth And  Reconciliation Anytime Soon.

Comment by jack colleton on June 22, 2016 at 0:43

A truth commission or truth and reconciliation commission is a commission tasked with discovering and revealing past wrongdoing by a government (or, depending on the circumstances, non-state actors also), in the hope of resolving conflict left over from the past.

@ Jack very good point why indeed not the justice minister,

@ Robert i have been through what you describe above, i have 5 kids all very young at the time of redress was told then they would be looked after for education and such it wasnt untill i read the caranua documents back in 2014 that i realised they were not going to get any help, now they are in college, getting ready for leaving cert and junior cert and any small help at all would make a huge difference, needless to say i have been fighing for change on this since, that is why it is an important part of our application to the human rights commission.

 I simply say this Micheal with due respect I have fought with Rob way before this site was even up we were STRONGLY of the same mind when that other site was running, we both realized it was not in  the interest of all survivors.

We even tried to promote back then the Petition online to have the fund stopped it never worked just as all this is not working, not because of us but because  our pleas are thrown into the bin, we can scream and shout from the highest roof tops they do not hear us as Mossie said many times.

 I WILL continue to fight for our Children who to date have not been funded and in poverty as like when we were Children could suffer the future as we cannot afford the Educational development and skills that all other working Families can.

 I have filled in and while working with survivors online in PRIVATE due to their personal Problems I try to be of help in anyway i can I may not be the best to help but I care and that is enough for many. I hurt for them as i hurt too. I share the idea of the human Rights with them but as you know it is delicate as many live in hope and then what ? dashed like this fund when the Religious said they will pay survivors directly then it was stolen by the same Education Minister who stole the support needed from OUR CHILDREN. 

I am sorry you have the same problem but I never said this was JUST about MY children Michael it was never just personal, though i yes I mentioned I am struggling . I am sorry dear Friend but I am lost on this matter I thought we should stand up for our children and especially if they are not being funded and the Minister is trying to cover this up and as you can see here on the very link i shared here as EVIDENCE.

WE NEED EVIDENCE besides the SUMS as Rob is also doing here.

What i am getting at if we DO NOT gather up the information where the Government the Education Minister the HSE the RELIGIOUS have BLATANTLY LIED and covered things up then Dear Friend WE HAVE NOTHING AT ALL. And to try and cover up the REALITY that Young Children have been covered up BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT ANYONE TO KNOW then this will only make the case we have  even more POWERFUL AND RIGHT the MORE we GATHER and QUESTION as I have done as everyone knows the more the corruption surfaces.

I think everyone knows by now the questions I have asked ? My pages are full of them letters posts etc etc,  I work hard along side Shame of Ireland and the Application. THIS should never be questioned I STRONGLY support all the work done on this, the very reason I set the Survivors who stand together up, Rob knows it reaches others we use each others sites to support all survivors. I face one way and one way only with Survivors everything i do is TRANSPARENT it is there as all can see as the Shame of Ireland.

The people are fed up reading about MONEY the Minister Of Education has seen to that BIG TIME I read on the Media anytime he spoke that people say they were Redressed what more do they want? I was fuming the Minister sold us all as money Grabbers they are still doing this and this is proving a uphill struggle because unless we can EXPOSE the TRUTHS then we get stuck looking at THE MONEY THEY MENTION.

I thought we need Healing Justice and welbeing. and to claim the proper support we all deserve.

Our Children deserve our support they have not had funds in 20002 and they were denied again in 2012.

THE WAY this was HANDLED is WRONG and SHAMEFUL this is the problem we missed before we never gathered up the Information leaving it all scattered every where instead of gathering up and tidy things up we are so angry the way the Education Minister and his MOB and the CARANAU HSE RELIGIOUS and everything is messy. And Survivors are running around with sore heads repeating the same stories over and over again.

I FULLY TRUST ROB NORTHALL and this site and the APPLICATION let this be said .

We need all the EVIDENCE and to ASK QUESTIONS we could possible need to EXPOSE that this fund and other funds never worked at all because they are like a small cheap sticky plaster trying to hold broken bones together.

Thank you Micheal for your Comment I am just a hot headed prat at times but my heart is in the RIGHT PLACE wishing your family and your good  self a Healthy life respectfully Robert

Robert there is no personal issue with what you said, we fight on, doors will keep being closed, so what, no change ever comes easy we stay with the fight, other wise they win, if you think you cant win you are already beaten, i think you should be able to understand that a lot of people work there ass off here for survivors both on and off the site, this site is not about egos or defeatism it is only about survivors getting whats due to them and their families.

Btw the evidence is there i have reams of it, we need a legal footing to be able to do something with it, which is what our human rights application is for, Michael

Comment by jack colleton on June 22, 2016 at 12:04

Yes Indeed Michael ... Health Minister?   Justice Minister?  Education Has Always Sounded To Me Off Or An Insult Since For Many Of Us We Either Had None Or It Was No Compensation For Injustice.

We Were Children Once And What Happened To Us Affects Succeeding Generations ..  The Government Of The Day Knows Well Intergeneration Trauma And Who Is To Blame!

Robert : -

With Respect To Ourselves As Children And What Really Happened There Is A Strong Case To Suggest The Abuse Goes On Today Seriously Impacting The Succeeding Generation's Trauma.

This Is Indeed A Legal Matter.
