There is a new Action Group to help find Relatives of Survivors; Would you be interested in Joining? This might be right up your street? Being a bit of an expert?

Hi Seanie .the group leader who gave us the questionare .is SALLY MULREADYof the london wonens group .but she has been in hiding for the past 10 years or more and only reciently resurfised because of the extra money being made avalable. Sally mulready is the chair of womans group and coalition of support groups camden LONDON but we at the manchester irish group had never heard of her untik reciently,when we had a meating in july .they are very unaproachable and were very coy about what instution thet were from .which left us all very suspitious.

Happy New Year Maggie & Les and all our shame of Ireland friends and a may the year have a happy ending.

I have been swamped with spam e-mails recently and my ISP server has just today sorted it out for me. Hope we all get sorted out one way or the other soon, the groups are squabbling with each other, thats my latest info received.

Michael,Michael, Michael,

Sorry about your family, uncles aunts neighbors etc. and sorry that all those you spoke to have not heard of Paddy Doyle, I feel your emotion. I studied under Aviom Sapir of Isreal in Interviewing, some call interrogation, and believe me it would open your eye's. The reason I tell you this is I have interviewed several reps of the groups and studied their replies including Paddy's and I spoke for myself when I said I want Mr. Doyle to speak for me, it takes so many to give him or anyone else a mandate so maybe check with Rob or some of the others who have computer access what they want. Did you see what I said regarding 12 million Euro in a fund which your whole family and neighbors may get charity from ?. We know how many (15,000) are out there, and I personally would like to let them know what is going on around them for free, where to go for direct help is all it takes, the guys holding the purse strings in the Irish Government will have a look at the paperwork and Im sure you your family and neighbors would be accommodated to your needs, sorry that you see this as an one sided argument, it is not. Finally Michael, Paddy did not ask to represent anyone, I selected him and requested his representation, read his book "The God Squad" and maybe you may get to know the man. Michael, if there are 50 on the site and 50 vote for his representation, surely that is 100% , Please let me see any other site that I may see 50 members names, and hope that my name is not one of them as I have never been contacted by any of these groups in my life. I commend you for coming on the Shame of Ireland and speaking of your opinions, that's good so please go and look at Paddys site and the whole history of what is going on.

PS... There was a gentleman from from Southampton who was ushered to Cork for to vote on the new group ROP he had his plane fare paid, stayed at the best hotel in Cork, meals etc.

The gentleman did not stay at any house provided by ROP. I would like to know who paid for this trip because I feel survivors compensation is being abused. I dont know of any Irish survivors in Canada, just one in the USA and he is attempting to have his grandchildrens education repaid from the mentioned 12 million I mentioned.

Good luck.

hello from Jack Colleton Survivor

John Hogan, Hello John, I e-mailed you quite some time ago and gave you information regarding the HSE and the individual with whom you should e-mail there, I haven't heard back from you and am wondering if I have the wrong e-mail address for you. Yes, I have the ariel photo of St. Joseph's Glin and the books you mentioned as well a several others some from as far back before my time in the forties and fifties. I had to handle the HSE by myself and attempt to get re-inbursements for my grand daughters, this sort of business is what the Groups should be doing, not sending newspaper reports to whoever they profess to represent and that is all it is, I suppose some of these ex- survivors have good intentions but I am saying Thanks but no Thanks to all of them, I have no malice towards anyone. I have had success in getting re-imbursemen for the girls.

Labour Party Counsellor for the Boroughs Of Hackney and Brent, London ,UK,Irish Forum UK, Elderly Irish Forum UK,  when would the woman have the time to help survivors many don't even know what she looks like. as she is in politica in the Uk I believe she shouldn't have any say in what happens to survivors compensation called the Statuary Trust Fund. why did she become involved in it. like I wrote about before I rang The London Irish Centre last year in trying to trace my missing sister they asked me all my sisters and mine detailes like DOB , where born , name of Industrial school, I HAVE NOT HEARD A WORD BACK.. THE SILENCE IS DEAFINING

We were used in the industrial schools as free hard labour to make the State a fortune , Now we are caught up in the Politics as well, O'h don't we deserve some Peace. we never get an honist answer , as those who are bellowing about the services they provide don't they rhing at least let us know WHAT THEY ARE DOING ABOUT IT. and if our names are on their LISTS for their FUNDING>???????????
