Children abused with systematic terror. About 30,000 children were systematically beaten up, raped and humiliated between 1940 and 1970 in state subsidized Catholic children homes and so-called work schools. In a closed waste water tank the nuns obviously had disposed of the victims of their regime over decades. Skulls, one on top of the others, two, three meter deep. The St. Mary’s Home was no isolated case. Read more:

On this website the Catholic Church was called a terroristic organization.

Today there was again a report about this organization and its terror.

Here extracts:

 

Horrifying find

Clerical deadly terror shakes Ireland

Single and pregnant? In Catholic Ireland this was regarded for a long time as disgrace. In homes for “fallen girls” thousands of babies died. The past caches up with the country – a form of 800 skeletons.

Abused children in schools and homes, exploited women in work houses, and now also still mass graves full of children’s bones: Ireland faces a further chapter of a difficult process of coming to terms with the past.

A well-looked-after grass area, surrounded by grey, picturesque grown over stone walls. The gables of modest houses on an estate behind. In one corner of the wall a small Maria shrine. This inconspicuous piece of fallow land in the West Irish little town Tuam (Galway County) has practically overnight received national and international importance. Because underneath the peaceful surface lies a mass grave: Almost 800 babies and children, who lost their life in a close by Catholic home, were treated like refuse and thrown in a former waste water tank without coffin or funeral.

The horrifying find brings the Catholic Church in the Green Island once again in great difficulties. Deputies of the Dublin parliament just as Amnesty International demand an independent investigation. Prime Minister Enda Kenny wants to decide soon.

That single mothers in the Catholic-theocratic society of Ireland until the 1980s were treated like third class citizens makes always new headlines for more than one decade. Tens of thousands had to slave away in the so-called Magdalene wash houses like female slaves, often they were forced to release their children for adoption. The degrading treatment and its results were recently the subject of the film “Philomena” with Judi Dench as leading lady. Only in April, after twelve years of fighting going through all the official channels, the genuine washing house victims were awarded compensation and an appropriate pension for the missed work time.

Children abused with systematic terror

As it went for the mothers for decades so also for the children. A judicial investigation commission collected at the beginning of the century in nine years of painstaking and detailed work the dreadful details. About 30,000 children were systematically beaten up, raped and humiliated between 1940 and 1970 in state subsidized Catholic children homes and so-called work schools. The report matter-of-factly lists what boys had to suffer: “Blows with the hand and the stick, kicks, burnings, scaldings; hanged up at wall hooks and beaten up, with dogs set on.”

In the institutions for girls the “daily terror” through groundless beatings were the order of the day. In the systematic abuse contempt for the boarders was expressed, who were hardly perceived as human beings.

Skulls under broken concrete slabs

The crimes came to light through the memories of survivors, mostly the unwanted children of often destitute families or single young women. But what happened to those who had not survived the clerical terror?

In Tuam Catherine Corless looked exactly into this question.

She soon came across Francis Hopkins and Barry Sweeney. With horror the two friends still remember today the summer afternoon 1975 when they made the horrifying discovery when playing. “There were broken concrete slabs; we pushed them aside”, Sweeney reported to the Irish TV station RTE. “Then we saw them: Skulls, one on top of the others, two, three meter deep. In panic we ran away.” The boys had come across a closed waste water tank, in which the nuns obviously had disposed of the victims of their regime over decades.

The results of her researches should reach far over Tuam; the St. Mary’s Home was no isolated case. The relevant minister for children, Charlie Flanagan, speaks of a “shocking evidence for the dark side of Irish history”.
