Years of abuse, decades of neglect.

It’s been my privilege over the last eighteen months to work alongside survivors of institutional child abuse in their battle for justice. Since Margaret McGuckin and others started their campaign on behalf of the children – now adults – abused in institutions across Northern Ireland, hundreds of people have come forward with personal stories of sexual, physical, mental and emotional abuse.



By the time you finish reading this, 15 children will have been abused; In the next five minutes, 30 more; Within the next hour, 360 more; And by tonight, close to 8,000+ children will have suffered from abuse, 5 of which will die. Child abuse has increased 134% since 1980 and is now considered a worldwide epidemic. The high jump in child abuse deaths and the shocking increase in statistics highlights the frightening lack of public knowledge.

    For an outstanding story of surviving horrific child abuse, I recommend My Mother Killed Christ: But God Loves Me Anyway. I cried, laughed, then cried again. The story is one of struggling through toxic relationships, including an affair with a priest, to finally finding forgiveness and peace within a loving relationship. Amazing story.
