    These people will never get justice..Neither will the victims of the Catholic Church
    The state is also complicit in these crimes and will never become accountable.
    Those babies in Tuam still have not had a decent Christian burial in a country that embraced same sex marriage.
    Until we see the same energy put in regarding these desperate injustices nothing will happen.
    They are confined to history and the state hope they will all die ,and the matter just ends as that

    The state is not the people ,but the people appointed by the government of the day to administer the civilian population
    The only chance for change will be the election where the people can call the state to account.
    Unfortunately I will not be voting as there is nothing there but more of the same calibre ,either side left middle right .

According to High Court records, Mr Buttlerly initiated the judicial review proceedings on Thursday…”
