Ireland's Child Care Institutions during the 20th. Century. Fo'T: The most vivid and passionate stories - banished babies, cruel orphanages, old abuses of power - have concerned things that went unnoticed, or at least unarticulated, at the time. News has often had to be redefined, not as the latest sensation but as that which everybody knew all along yet could not say.

When I was in those .....Places, (Now I’ve never thought of this before)
They always seemed like passing through places
Somewhere temporary
But now that I think on it
Look back at the days passed I realise I lived there
And I live Here now
This is my home
With people I care about I know they won't hurt me.
In those Places I lost all perspective
On what was truly love or hate
So I just flowed like a river
From day to day
And tried to guide my direction
So I could arrive somewhere
