Email for Sineád Desmond and Mark Cagney Ireland AM
Hi Mark and Sineád, i am contacting you regarding an interview you did on this Morning’s show with Mary Higgins CEO of Caranua, allow me please point out to you that the name Caranua only came about in resent weeks, the real name of Caranua is or was “The Statutory Trust Fund” I am a Survivor of Ireland’s industrial Schools, i think it is very unfair that no survivors were invited on to the show to represent survivors? why only a one sided interview? Mary Higgins does not speak for us Survivors, Caranua as she calls it is a fraud, that 110 Million was giving to us Survivors by the 18 Religious orders, the Money in that fund is called “Reparation Money” it is not state money, the state are guilty parties in our Childhood abuse and have no right to control and dictate to us Survivors how our money is going to be spent! Mary Higgins makes it very clear that there is “No cash” in the fund for Survivors, she failed to mention that she is in receipt of a salary of 80 Thousand euro per year plus for the next five years and all expenses paid, while most of the Survivors live in poverty and destitution.
I work online with a team of Survivors, we help and support each other and try make sure Survivors are kept informed about whats going on with our Reparation Money and properties etc, survivors put petitions up to try stop this fund, survivors protested to try stop this fund, survivors bulk emailed all members of the government to try and stop this fund, every thing in this fund is already available to very member of the public, our funds are been used in Administration “jobs and big salaries for the boys!” I am asking you both to call Mary Higgins back on the show and i will go on to represent and defend my fellow survivors against this further injustice?
