Roscommon Case

Post by mkaobrih » Wed Jan 21, 2009 10:31 pm

I’ve just watched the 9 O’clock new and the were discussing the mother incest child abuse case in Roscommon. Seems the children were going to be taken into care after the last child was born but that quote “a right wing catholic group” funded the mother to resist the court ruling.

Its weird that any normal person, no matter what their political or religious inclination, would try to prevent social services from helping children who were so clearly victims of severe neglect and abuse.

I can only assume that they had never met them.

It does explain why it took so long for the children to be removed from their mother.
What a desperately sad case.
