Descripción del libro

21 de julio de 2011
In June 1964, a twelve-year old child was summonsed to appear at Dublin's Magistrates Court. The offence for which he was charged related to an amateurish break-in when coerced and accompanied by older children. In terms of gravity the misbehaviour was hardly more than a prank. In the severe surroundings of that oak panelled court, deep in the bowels of Dublin Castle, Mickey was sentenced to serve Three years hard labour in what was then known as an industrial school. Letterfrack Industrial School to which he was sent is situated in Connemara, one of Ireland's most isolated regions. For a child its remoteness found its equal only in a Siberian gulag; the likelihood of escape less than that from San Francisco's notorious Alcatraz Prison. Its seclusion in this malevolent place of correction was a major factor in the institutionalised abuse of children by the Christian Brothers with whom these unfortunate waifs were placed Many of these ill-fated youngsters had not been convicted of any offence; their crime was that they were orphaned; most if not all were victims of dysfunctional family life. During his sentence Mickey, and the hundreds of other children who passed through this den of depravity, were methodically physically and mentally tortured and abused. The Irish State was instrumental in providing this depraved band of brothers with a steady supply of victims. With Taliban-like zeal the Christian Brothers methodically administered random life threatening beatings merely on a whim; the more injurious were witnessed by fellow brothers and many witnessed by other terrified children.

Having visited Letterfrack on Annual Excursions from St Joseph's CBS in Salthill, Galway, I'm all too aware of what a soul-destroying place it was. In my own memoir of that period (1951 - 1966) I described it as a 'sarcophagus for childrens' spirits', for that surely was what it represented. I visited the place 'on excursion' in 1964 during Mickey's first summer there. While Mickey's recollections of his time in Letterfrack were harrowing to read I was left detached due in part to lack of reference to his tormentors by their real names and gaps in the story regarding day-to-day life there. I also found it unusual that he appears never to have attended school...his secondment to the school's farm at age twelve seems unusual to say the least, even by Letterfrack's appalling standards. Those reservations aside, there is no denying Mickey's atrocious treatment (and that of the thousands of children condemned to endure Letterfrack's penal conditions) that brings nothing but abject shame to Mother Church. I was all too aware of the deviant nature of the Brothers charged with 'caring for' the country's misbegotten from my own experiences in Salthill but it pales when compared with Mickey's own experience. Mickey's story is a voice from the grave of the voiceless thousands who endured Ireland's version of Devil's island.
