No Birth Mothers Need Apply

by Irish First Mothers   Irish women whose infants were stolen by the State and Church apparatus are not concerned over their privacy rights . We are concerned for our Human Rights . We were sidelined when our babies were stolen. We are an afterthought today in a Bill framed entirely around the adopted person. What has changed? As victims of a State-sanctioned regime, we want UNREDACTED access to all files used in these mass scale, practices which were illegal and still-unprosecuted genocide, under the ICC Act, 2006.  We oppose this rush to legislate BEFORE the Commission of Investigation reports.  We are adults . Our stolen children are now adults. We want no part of the widely discredited Tusla system. We do not see ourselves as a new "market" for ineffective and already overburdened State services.  We are simply exercising an FOI human right to the unredacted files which will help us find the truth of our lives and rebuild our sundered family bonds -without

The Irish State Shield Against Unwed Mothers

The Irish State Shield Against Unwed Mothers By Fintan Dunne Claire Byrne Buries the Genocide  Sean O'Rourke Keeps it in The Family  Katherine Zappone Stacks the Political Deck  Epilog for multiply-raped 'Angela' " U.K.‘s Radio 4 ran a series called “ Does He Take Sugar? ”, referring to when someone asks the carer about sugar, instead of directly asking the person... " -- Yvonne Rogers W omen from the Mother and Baby Homes belie the older stereotype and range in age from mid forties to early seventies. These are modern women and they can speak for themselves. Irish First Mothers is their representative group. If you want to know their views, ask them. Don't ask someone else whether they take sugar. RTE's Claire Byrne Buries the Genocide On 5th March, 2017 Minister Katherine Zappone admitted what the Irish Government had denied ever since the 'Tuam Babies' story broke in international media. There were after all signific


PR GURU TERRY PRONE'S OFFICES AMONG THREE SITES TARGETED BY TUAM BABIES PROTESTERS T uam babies protesters on Easter Monday targeted the Dublin 4, 'Communications Clinic' offices of PR guru Terry Prone . The Tuam Home Survivors Network says Ms. Prone is enriching herself by representing religious orders now found to have lied to a Commission of Investigation. "Terry Prone is helping spin lies by nuns who are making fools of us all," says group member, Anthony Fennell . "You can call it 'spin', but it's lies." The Tuam survivor and relatives group wants Ms. Prone to cease acting for religious orders. Earlier today the group held a protest action at the offices of the North Galway coroner, Dr Val Costello , in Headford, County Galway. "The coroner, Dr Val Costello despite the discovery of human remains in 2016 has has still not convened an inquest," said Kevin Higgins a barrister member of the group who represen


We have a mythologised history of the religious-run Institutions as told by the Cult, the clerics who spoon-fed us their mythologised history of their Religious Run Institutions.  Uncovering The Cults' massacre of unwed Mothers and their Children must now be a top priority. Slowly, gently even, we must scrape away the dirt, raw sewage and the Cults lies of decades, from human bones, the remains of innocent women and their vulnerable children.   Tangled with the remains, are shreds of pain, rape, brutality, bruised clothes and the rotten mould of unnamed children’s leather shoes. The mass graves at all Religious run Institutions in Ireland, must be rediscovered, DNA'd and reburied in proper graves. A  crime is an act that constitutes a serious violation of the law that gives rise to individual criminal responsibility. The individual criminal responsibility must now apply to all the Nuns, Priests and Religious Brothers that ran the Religious Institutions in Ireland.

The Vatican Thinks "The Devil Works Through Children"

GUEST POST | BY FELIX O'NEILL Former President of Ireland Mary McAleese was told by the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Angelo Sodano that—‘The Devil works through children raped by priests’ . She also said- that Cardinal Sodano, attempted in 2003 to secure a secret agreement with Ireland that it would not access Church Documents about Clerical pedophiles and child rape, because Cardinal Sodano "wanted to protect Vatican and Diocesan Archives.” Ms McAleese also said that the encounter with Cardinal Sodano left her: “really quite shattered”  "There was nothing about Cardinal Sodano that was holy. There was nothing about him that was godly.  There was nothing about him that was admirable. Everything about him I found horrifying.” The recent television program Rome v Republic was to me overall very disappointing. I felt there was an opportunity to hold Archbishop Diarmuid Martin's feet to the fire, so to speak. To truly hold him accountable for h


Guest Post | by Owen Felix O'Neill Between 5,000 and 7,000 healthy single mothers died in Irish unwed mothers institutions and w e need an honest public discussion of that appalling toll. I was born in such an institution: St. Patrick’s on the Navan Road Dublin, the biggest in the country. I spent my first 4 years there.  My mother, Norah, was 38 when she had me in 1954. It obviously wasn’t easy for her or the other women of these homes and although I never knew her, the following is based on my conversations over the years with other women who survived the homes. RELIGIOUS BUTCHERY -NOT MEDICINE In some London hospitals in the early 1940s, 50s and 60s, many of the midwives in training were Irish nuns. But once  their training was completed and  they  returned home to Ireland and  started to work at the nine main unmarried mothers homes they altered some of the surgical procedures they learnt in London to lethal effect.   An episiotomy, although no longer routine, is a f
