Nothing To Review Here

This afternoon.
A review of illegal adoptions in the State has recommended against a full-scale inquiry,  Minister for Children Roderic O’Gorman told cabinet colleagues this morning.

Via The Irish Times:

The sampling review is thought to have examined around 1,500 records held by the Adoption Authority of Ireland and Tusla, finding around 260 instances where there was information or so-called “markers” which raised the suspicion or prospect that an illegal adoption may have taken place.
Based on the prevalence of so called “markers” within this sample, the review estimates that between around 5,500 and up to 20,000 files may have similar indicators within the wider archives.
It is understood that while files contain material or “markers” which raised suspicions, the review didn’t find clear evidence of illegal adoptions indicated.
….the review stops short of recommending a full-scale inquiry into the issue.

Good times.

    Stomach churning stuff, they read like homes wanted for cats and dogs advertisements. How many of these poor souls ended up in totally unsuitable homes to totally unsuitable parents and the start of a new nightmare.

    The Roman Catholic church really is a disgusting organisation, and why the governing bodies prevent proper justice be served against it is so very confusing.

      The Catholic Church is disgusting. But this happened in the Church of Ireland too. Very little attention is being paid to that, despite the survivors really wanting an inquiry into Church of Ireland orphanages.

    Minister for Children Roderic WHITEWASH O’Gorman.
    FFFG were up to the necks in cahoots with the ir-religious orders.
    For the Greenwash party to do the same it is totally execrable.
    A pox upon all of their houses!

    The incompetence of O’Gorman is astounding
