Daingean: A shameful silence as the children suffered


Daingean: A shameful silence as the children suffered: “And as we look again at these and other issues – the administration of justice, the operations of banks, the links between business and politics – it’s plain that the most pervasive influence on Irish society is class.”THEN AND NOW”THE CAUSES OF CRIME”INEQUALITY”

Daingean: Broken people


Daingean: Broken people.WORKING-CLASS.

Daingean


Daingean: “No punishment books – required by law – had survived from Daingean. He didn’t know what happened to them.”AMAZING?

Daingean


Daingean: “Describing the school”IRISH INSTITUTION” as ‘Dickensian’, he wrote that the conditions in which its herd of cows was kept were considerably better than those for the boys. Crucially, he added: ‘I am of the opinion that very handsome profits are made on the farm, but I can see no evidence of any of the profits being ploughed back for the benefit of the boys.'”???????

Daingean


Daingean: “I was glad to be leaving the claustrophobic poverty of Limerick and the mindless cruelty of Sexton Street.”CRIME,WHAT IS CRIME AND WHAT IS ITS CAUSES?

Daingean


Daingean: “He expressed concern that there were many people who did not want the truth to come out and who ‘will work against the commission to make sure that the truth does not come out’.”SECRECY AND CRONYISM ARE THE TWO BIGGEST CANCERS IN IRISH SOCIETY,THEN AND NOW.

Daingean


Daingean: “As a matter of verifiable record, he had been a progressive reformer who sought to humanise conditions for the boys, but was frustrated at every turn by public and State indifference.”STRANGE THEN THAT HIS NAME IS ATTACHED TO DOCUMENTS THAT SENT TEENAGERS TO PORTLAOISE”PRISON”IN THE 1960s?

Daingean


Daingean: “I was approached by a retired civil servant named Risteard Mac Conchradha. He had been a member of the Kennedy committee whose 1970 report signalled the beginning of the end for industrial schools. He wanted me to write about the horrors he and others had uncovered in Daingean”?

Daingean


Daingean: “The published report contained no reference to the practice. Peter Berry, secretary of the Department of Justice, deemed that such disclosure would have caused ‘a grave public scandal’.”MORE CONCERNED ABOUT A SCANDAL[PUBLIC IMAGE]THAN WHAT WAS GOING ON?
