Feb/March 2019 – Ireland – Tipperary & Galway (Will now coincide with my visit in July)
I will be over in Ireland talking to survivors of the Mother & Baby Home era in relation to my forthcoming book “Behind Closed Doors’ The Baby Brokers.
It has been and will continue to be a long battle for justice from the Church & State for the atrocities that were caused back in those homes, also the Magdalen Laundries, Smyllum Park Orphanage and most likely many, many others.
If you are or were in any way connected to any of the Mother & Baby Homes and would like even just a little of your story told in the book then please get in touch. If you would like to have anonymity that will not a problem.
By telling your story you are contributing to the cause, a % of the proceeds from the book will be donated to various committees who work continually to have those who are buried in unmarked graves given a plot and proper burial whereby they may be remembered. You will also be supporting them in the fight for justice for those who suffered abuse of any kind at the hands of the Church.
