Our thanks to K for this. Irene Kelly was the authoress of Sins of the Mother, which was published two weeks ago. She says she has yet to receive an apology from the Catholic church. From the book’s back cover, as described on Amazon:
‘At night, when it’s very quiet, I can still hear the sound of babies crying. The babies from the nursery, the ones I couldn’t help.’
Irene Kelly was brought up in poverty and abused by her mammy from an early age. But home life was still better than the time she spent in one of Dublin’s industrial orphanages. Under that harsh regime, she was beaten and sexually assaulted. Set to work in the nursery, she saw nuns treating babies with horrifying cruelty.
So, will the mainstream media show the same interest in abusive nuns, as it rightly showed in abusive priests?
