Dear Angela

Irish Times letters

 

 

Dear Angela,

I am under the age of 50 and it has always baffled me and my friends why so few people raised the alarm about child abuse in Ireland. Some, including journalists working on papers at that time, plead ignorance.

But if you (and presumably the aunties on all the other papers) were hearing of allegations of the “agony” going on in schools and families and whatnot did you not pass these on to the guards or, at the very least, your own paper’s news desk?

Also, can you love the same person twice?

Thank you,

Bodger
