The state will not accept responsibility.

The church will not accept responsibility.

Hannifin says the responsibility lies with the boards of management. Who are voluntary. The boards of management report to the Patron i.e the Bishop.

Who is responsible for our children????

How does Hannifin get away with doing nothing???
She will brazen it out until people forget. Hard nosed b***h.


Please Europe stand in and do something. Cause the Irish government certainly will not.

Muppets.

When I read thing like this I think what a sick bunch of f***&?s run this country. The CCL gets caught for raping and torturing children over decades and the government gives us the bill. A woman tries to get justice and she gets bankruptcy.

What a sick little island....

It's a very deliberate strategy. It means the buck stops nowhere.

So effectively nobody is accountable for our childrens welfare if a teacher decides to rape them. Only the teacher themselves. Not the people who put the teacher there and pay them.

If a member of the Guards or Army is abused or bullied by another member of the same system the Minister for Justice or Defence will be taken to the High Court.

Why not the Minister for Education??

This really is a huge issue that has totally gone under the radar. Why is there no significant display of outrage about this?Does nobody give a shit? Its our children we are trying to protect.

These so-called boards of management are an integral part of the patronage system for the management of Irish primary schools. This is yet another reason why it should be abolished.

Oh do! Someone needs to be there talking common sense. Hit them with the "should children be taught how to think or what to think" torpedo.

It would be excellent to have someone here on a school board even just to know how the thing works. I can even give you a code name if you like. You can wear a mack and drop coded messages into the duck pond on stephens green. Catherder in his snorkel outfit will retrive them at night.

Over and out!
