The Light In The Window

it was 1950, i hear the stories  it was old ireland , church and religion,  teenagers going out at weekend  boys and girls just being friends , uncles and brothers and even dads , girls got pregnant and put in a institution, nothing they encouraged , nothing they asked for , i heard the stories , it was called the beesboro ,  a home for unmarried mothers , it was happening in the home , this place was run by nuns and priests , the police came and took those girls away , priest was with them , gone locked up , no help no family visits just locked away and forgotten about , the abuse they went through in there was awful , poor sleeping arrangements , no hygiene or medical care , just used as slaves , pregnant , tired no fault of the girls it was taken from them , and had there babies in appaling conditions , knock on the door were selling the babies to couples who could not have children , 200 hundred for a child , nuns kept the money, so did the priests , girls were just kept locked up and left to suffer for something they did not ask for

Not so Old Ireland. and how they love to blame the British for evert thing, but this is Irish persecution of Irish the worst crime of all. the shame I feel is as a nation we judge others. when we are just as bad if not worse. Any way may the future be brighter.

no one is blaming the british , these places were run by the church , by the priests and nuns and law all irish people
