Christine Buckley, drochíde, Survivors of Institutional Abuse.Dear Mothe...
Torramh Christine Buckley funeral, abuse of children in institutions in Ireland. Click "Show more " below for ++ eolas / info ! Bhí an tUachtarán Michael D Higgins ar scaifte de os cionn 1,000 duine a d'fhreastail ar thorramh Christine Buckley i mBaile Átha Cliath inniu. Cailleadh Christine Buckley agus í in aois 67 mar gheall ar ailse. Agus í óg d'fhulaing sí drochíde in institiúidí a bhí faoi smacht oird reiligiúnda. Ar theacht in aois chaith sí cuid mhór dá saoil ag brú is ag feachtasú ar son daoine a d'fhulaing drochíde. Ag an Aifreann inniu cuireadh in iúl go raibh glór beag aici ach go raibh a éifeacht mór láidir. http://www.nuacht24.com/nuacht/an-tua... mí-úsáid ceannasachta = abuse of a dominant position; mí-úsáid páistí = child abuse
Christine Buckley (67), who was the of the first people to speak out publicly about the abuse of children in institutions in Ireland, died at St Vincent's Hospital in Dublin this morning after a long battle with cancer.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christin... Christine Buckley (1946/1947 -- 11 March 2014) was the director of the Aislinn support and education group for survivors of Industrial Schools in Ireland. She was raised in St. Vincent's Industrial School, Goldenbridge.
The daughter of a Nigerian medical student and a married Dublin woman. she was abandoned at three weeks of age and grew up in Goldenbridge industrial school. She went through primary and, unlike many industrial school children, secondary school, eventually qualifying as a nurse. In 1985 she contacted her mother and in 1988 she contacted her father.
She spoke of her childhood on The Gay Byrne Show in November 1992. During the interview she was asked about her childhood and she described her experience of Goldenbridge. She worked with Louis Lentin on the documentary Dear Daughter, which dealt with her experiences and the experiences of others in Goldenbridge.
In 2003, she called on Fianna Fáil Minister for Education Noel Dempsey to resign after he proposed that the Commission investigate only sample allegations of abuse instead of the 1800 complaints. After the Commission report was published, she spoke of being filled with anger though she should have been filled with hope. In June 2009, she took part in a wreath-laying ceremony and a march of solidarity with victims of abuse in industrial schools. Up to 10,000 people took part in the march. In June 2009 she criticised a letter to priests by Pope Benedict XVI on the grounds that it used vague language and that it may have concealed rather than acknowledged the wrongs done.
