Friday afternoon this is an email My cousin Henry and myself were sent from the Department of Justice. We had a meeting with the Minister last year and she promised to get back to us after the summer break. We heard nothing and both of us wrote to the Minister and got not reply. On the 8th of August a letter was sent to the Ombudsman complaining about the Minister’s non response to our meeting and letters. As a result of which the following was received by email. Interesting to see if hard copies will follow

It is now going on 14 months since members of the Molloy family met with Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald. She promised to respond to the meeting after the Summer break. ( Last year’s Summer break ) We still have heard nothing and despite again promising Denis Naughten TD last November that she would be in contact with the family. NOTHING. Also not answering letters from the family over the past year.

>ENCOURAGECHANGE.: Former Education Ministers ‘not made aware’ of abuse: “Gemma Hussey, who was education minister between late 1982 and 1986, noted that the report’s ‘vague’ reference to the ‘early 1980s’ meant it was unclear if she was minister at the time.’?”

Three poems by Tim Dwyer
ANGEL ON EARTHMary O’Hara Irish Harpist and Singer
I don’t always know
which memories are imagined.
Her songs were lullabies
rising from the family phonograph.
I hear them now
through a stack of losses,
feel the soothing
as only a child can
from the pure voice

with the flowing hair
playing on her harp
the music of the air
before the tragedy
of her young poet’s death
before joining the sisterhood
and leaving this world
to seek the comfort of God.

The Irish political system has failed to address the concerns of a growing number of Irish citizens. This fact has been stated time and time again by our political parties, politicians and others throughout Irish society, to no avail or functioning recourse. As a result, the Irish people are facing crisis after crisis including our health service, our water supply, homelessness and evictions.
A change in Irish politics is therefore necessary. A rebalancing of political power is required in order to rebuild the people’s shattered confidence in government, which has in the past been all too readily abused by politicians, parties, public servants and lobbyists.
We are therefore calling for the implementation of people-initiated referendums; a mechanism that means nationwide petitions can trigger a national referendum. This change will put Irish people at the centre of an inclusive political system and decision-making.
This is a tried and tested mechanism that is enjoyed in other countries around the world. Introducing the…
