Hello Rob and a very happy new year to you and your family,   Rob could you let me have either the address or phone number for Eileen Mc Mahon she is the solicitor who was at the meeting in London in November.  She promised to take up our petition against caranua and run with it,  she said there would be another meeting in either January or February.  I just need to get in touch and ask how things are progressing.  We are into another year and more of our money is flowing away,  it just seems to be impossible to stop this organisation from using our funds, not all of us need all that they outlining in their brochure some of us need financial help,  if you could help it would be great.

Hello Rob, hope you are well,   Eileen McMahon did speak to me but she said that she is having problems getting in touch with anyone in the Irish Government to look at our case with caranua,  but she did give me a TD's email address, so  I have sent a message with our problems about caranua and was told by her office that my email will be passed on to her office,  so we live with baited breath to see if we have some one who will travel over here to talk to us.  I have heard on the website that caranua  has been taken over by a private company,  is that true Rob,  do you know who they are.  Happy Easter to you and family.The TD's name is Marylou Mc Donald.

Is Caranua a fund for Survivors or a job creating service to take people off the Dole ?????
At 13:40 on June 16, 2016, Geraldine Jackson said…

Hi Rob, I have been suffering from aggressive Cancer 3rd time but am home and doing OK , I bet NONE of those so called services know of this I never have any contact with them so hope they are not getting funding using my name.They only care about their highly paid jobs and funding . It is Illegal if they have been using survivors  names without their written permission ,

Michael I have come to the conclusion that the answer to Caranua is in the speech given by Minster Quinn in the Dail when setting up the Statuary trust fund that he later changed to Caranua.It is quite clear that he manipulated the suffering of survivors to the benefit of the government and Catholic Church. He and his government were far more interested in getting land from the Catholic Church in a fifty fifty deal that never existed before the Ryan Report this show the the Irish governments complete contempt for survivors with the full knolage that survivors are mostly uneducated and suffering from mental illness. Who represented survivors with there case speaking to a small group of survivors that has no education is not the way a government with the intrest of survivors should operate and the survivors he got advice from were themselves being funded by the Irish government and the Catholic Church

Yep thats about the size of it, totaly ilegal, there is and has been control over abuse victims by their abusers,  why on earth should we pay caranuas wages, if they are linked to civil pay scales the government should pay them, likewise payments to towards healing owned and funded by the church from our money, the misinformation and secrecy that surrounds caranua spending is a sure sign that the same old game is in play. You merely have to apply to caranua to see that very same contempt.

Hi Rob, nothing surprises me with that mob at caranua - We the SURVIVORS have been treated with nothing but contempt by the people behind the Fund - from the original Redress Board and under the New Regime of Caranua, plus the Irish Government allowing them all to do as they please with no accountability to anyone. The paid lawyers millions, the paid themselves millions and all we get are the scraps from the table - How on earth could a fund with 110 million ever close if it was managed properly. Barbara

rte news to day reported on the 1o clock news the church is to be pursued for the rest of the

money they promesed to pay the people they abused in state run prisions for children the

state has payed over half of what was agreed but the church is staling on what they agreed

to pay . this has come about over what has happened in the last few days infent bodies found in septic tank in mother and baby homes the nuns just dumped dead babyies for the

rats to eat in sewers. and any were just to save church money that was used to buy vast

amounts of land and property . this money was optained  on the blood and sweet  of the

women and the babies they sold in america for 3000dollars . the church treated people

like cattle using them to make money for the church . what should be done now is send in

the garda and the cab to take oll of the churches assets and leave them with nothing . jfox
