Genocide, rape, child abuse, mercantile adoptions...
Have you been a victim directly or indirectly?
Can justice ever be restored? How?

Yet another thing to add to the very long list of past abuses of Irish people, particularly women and children, and especially poorer women and children, by the then all-powerful (but now dying) Catholic church with the full collusion of the State at the time.

I was deeply angered and shocked by Catherine Corless’s research in to the Tuam mother and baby hellhole when it was in the media a few years back - but this report basically confirms what most of us had suspected and feared since the Tuam scandal.

Personally, I am not impacted by this report but I know a couple of people who were born in these mother and baby “homes”, were subsequently adopted and have been trying to find their birth mothers.

My Mother passed through them. Even though she was very young at the time her bitterness & Hatred for them persists to this day.

My mother wasn't in a home, but was in a school run by nuns and they whipped her silly for being left handed. She was a very bitter woman, never went to mass or prayed.

Watching the RTE1 investigation.

Clearly that church only ever had two concerns: money and sex.
And both tended to involve the exploitation of children.
