What’s in a name-Artane Boys Band
At its height, Artane, an Industrial School in Dublin, had over 400 boys, detained in a hell-hole prison built for children. Daily discipline was brutally maintained by the Christian Brothers. The Christian Brothers that ran Artane Industrial School, were given no specific training on how to be childminders. Instead they were free, within limits, to do whatever they thought was necessary to maintain order in the children’s prison and to command the respect of the children. Artane Industrial School regulations certainly gave the Christian Brothers the authority to punish children at will to maintain control. The Christian Brothers officially had the right and christian duty to use endemic violence and rape on the vulnerable children arbitrarily, plus the absolute right to kill them. Violence was always used to ensure orderly supervision and management of the Industrial Schools. In spite of the regulations laid down by the Order of Christian Brothers and their prohibition on assaulting children, the Christian Brothers at all the Industrial Schools carried out their daily tasks brutally and bloodily. It's a fact that some of the most vulnerable children in Artane and other Industrial Schools in Ireland over the years were raped and beaten to death.
Remember the Christian Brothers had no training in child care, no understanding of children, except within their own families. The Christian Brothers were told from day one of their training as Brothers that these children of the Industrial Schools were the spawns of the devil. The children of the Industrial Schools in Ireland were marginalised, by the Catholic Church and that allowed the Religious Orders of the Catholic Church to commit the worst atrocities on them. Even to this very day discrimination against children of single mothers in Ireland is deeply rooted and a common reality in the Catholic Church.
Collective violence and rape was common in all Religious run Institutions in Ireland. Passive Christian Brothers and other officials who saw what was happening by not acting, like refusing to see, amounted to silent approval. It confirms to those Nuns and Christian Brothers who do act that the fundamental rules of mutual help have ceased to apply. To understand the excesses of violence, it is crucial to consider the role of the passive Christian Brothers who also generated violence. At the same time, sadist colleagues serve as ‘negative figures of reference’. They allow the spectators, the passive Christian Brothers, to see themselves as ‘normal’, even, by contrast, humane and compassionate.
It is now known that many of the Christian Brothers, themselves were known to be guilty of multiple sexual rape and humiliation of boys in other Religious run Institutions in Ireland and England. Many of these sadist Christian Brothers were especially assigned to Artane Industrial School. The first thing to remember about Artane Industrial School, in Dublin is that every Christian Brother that worked there, was a pedophile and a sadist, one way or the other. Every single Christian Brother that worked at Artane Industrial School was named as a sadist and a pedophile. One only needs to read The Ryan Report on Artane Industrial School to understand why;-It was open, hunting season by the Catholic Church and its policy to rape, beat, torture and murder children in any of the Religious Run Institutions in Ireland. And they the sadists, the Religious Orders got away with it, the Catholic Church as a whole were given immunity by The Ryan Report- The Commission to inquire into Child Abuse Ireland.
The Congregation of Christian Brothers told the world that it does not accept any blame as a Congregation for the sexual rape, brutality, torture, murder and humiliation of boys as young as 7 years old in Artane Industrial School, in Dublin. According to the findings in;- The Ryan Report, the Commission to inquire into Child Abuse Ireland 2009. --3,685 boys were detained between 1940 and 1969 in Artane Industrial School, Dublin. According to The Ryan Report;-
1,173 boys reported sexual rape on them by all the pedophile Christian Brothers, the other 2,512 boys died or were to afraid to give evidence to the Ryan Commission. The numbers alone 1,173 boys now as men are staggering. Secrecy is an Irish disease, secrecy is also a Catholic Church sacred ritual, the Catholic Church thrives on secrecy. Child Rape by the Clerics absolutely thrives on secrecy. Secrecy was employed by The Irish Catholic Church to facilitate and conceal the rape of vulnerable children in all their Religious run Institutions or child prisons in Ireland. The Secrecy was suppressed for many decades and was orchestrated and perpetuated by both the Irish Catholic Church, its Clerics, further concealed and encouraged with the active help of most members of the Irish Government at the time.
Music was a fundamental component of life in all the Industrial Schools of Ireland. The most famous was the Artane Boys Band, Dublin. From almost the beginning of the opening of Artane Industrial School, in Dublin, a boys band was established, the year was 1871. The Christian Brothers routinely ordered the boys to sing while marching or exercising or during punishment actions. This was done to mock, humiliate, rape and discipline the boys. Boys who disobeyed the rules or who incorrectly carried them out gave the Christian Brothers an excuse for arbitrary beatings. Boys who didn’t know the song or music or marching were beaten as well, a few were beaten to death.
The sadistic Christian Brothers inflicted savage beatings and rapes on most boys daily. In 1886 the band established its hugely rewarding relationship with the two-year old Gaelic Athletic Association, known as the GAA, when the Artane's Boys Band first performed at a GAA match in Dublin. This relationship would help to chart the future of the Artane’s Boys Band right up until the present day, as it would later become synonymous with Croke Park and Gaelic games right throughout the country. The State broadcaster, RTE also has a lot to answer for, for glorifying the Artane Boys Band and encouraging the Band’s biggest Pedophile, Brother Joseph O’Connor. Brother Joseph O’Connor was a bigger pedophile than Jimmy Savile, the fiendish Brother Joseph O’Connor even raped and beat the boys in the band in public. Brother Joseph O’Connor encouraged other nefarious pedophiles to pick up any vulnerable boy they chose and take the boy home for a day or two.
The repertoire of Artane's Boys Band depended on the preferences of the Christian Brothers, on their musical sophistication, and on the occasions when the band would perform. Artane Industrial School boys band performed not only Sundays at all GAA sports events, but any other day that the Christian Brothers could exploit. The boys in the Artane Band never received any payment, not even a penny from a grateful GAA except a shared bottle of Fanta and a bag of Tayto Crisps as a thanks. Irony would have it that Fanta was actually created in Nazi Germany, Fanta was invented by Coca-Cola, an American company, inside of Nazi Germany during World War II.
The Artane Boys Band was a veneer for the criminal activities of the nefarious Christian Brothers, it was all an elaborate hoax. Elaborate measures were taken to disguise the dreadful conditions in the child prison known as Artane Industrial School and to portray an atmosphere of normalcy. The Artane Boys Band was used ruthlessly to show a very content Christian school. Also a beautification propaganda program was started, the boys were forced to planted gardens, painted housing complexes, renovated dormitories, and developed and practiced cultural programs for the entertainment of the visiting dignitaries to convince them that Artane Industrial School and the Artane Boys Band were happy and real. Artane Industrial School had been "cleaned up" and rearranged as a model Industrial School, an Irish Boys Town. It was Fr. Edward Flanagan, the founder of Boy's Town who was from Roscommon. Fr. Flanagan’s visit to Ireland in 1946, he was appalled by the abuse of children in the institutions he had visited.
But no amount of veneer or makeover could hide when the distinguished visitors walked around and saw for themselves, children with black eyes, children with broken limbs, terror and sadness on most of the children’s faces. You cannot veneer horror, nor the smell of fear, nor the pain and suffering of vulnerable starving children. During the inspection of Artane Industrial School, the conniving Christian Brothers talked to the eminent visitors and hoped to show that the treatment of the boys was a demonstration of their benevolent treatment by the kind and generous Christian Brothers, a safe place where the children could be housed and play in safety. The Artane Boys Band would parade and play a few marching musical numbers, the Christian Brothers smiled, the eminent visitors smiled, while the starving, bruised, beaten and raped boys cried.
When Government Officials and other clowns came to inspect the hell-hole of Artane concentration camp for inspections, proud Christian Brothers showed off the band as a 'special attraction' and as proof of 'their' Industrial School’s exemplary performance. The musicians’ the boys main duties, however, were to provide background music for the daily horrors of rape, beatings, humiliations and ever murder by the Christian Brothers in Artane Industrial School. The boys band performed under the most inhuman of circumstances, something that caused all the surviving boys to experience feelings of guilt and depression for the rest of their lives. Some of the boys as young musicians were summoned to play for the Christian Brothers or visiting Clerics in private entertainment. A few of the boys were beaten and raped at these private events by visiting Senior Clerics and prominent people.
Many of the boys were granted a special status that offered them some protection against arbitrary acts, committed by the Christian Brothers as well as privileges essential for survival, but still most if not all the boys in the band were raped and beaten. Yes the boys got 'milder' work assignments, better clothing or additional food rations, like a bottle of Fanta and a bag of Tayto Crisps. In a sense, making music at the Industrial School served as a survival strategy for many of the boys, but in reality the beatings, humiliations and rapes were more severe. The Band leader Brother Joseph O’Connor was a well known serial and prolific pedophile, of the worst order and the boys band was his special domain. Brother O’Connor ruled the band, his boys, his chicken coop with an iron fist, a childhood for all the boys, a life filled with fear, humiliation and random sexual rape.
Musical life in the Industrial Schools was of a distinctly two-faced nature. On the one hand, music acted as a means of survival for the boys; on the other hand, it served as an instrument of terror for the Christian Brothers. The Christian Brothers raped and beat the boys for their own purposes. With forced daily musical performances they furthered the process of breaking the boys willpower and of human degradation. Thus, music in the Industrial Schools served as a necessary distraction and method of cultural survival for the boys, and simultaneously as a means of domination for the perpetrators, The Christian Brothers.
The GAA needs to pay reparations to all the survivors of the Artane Industrial Boys Band. In reality the Artane Boys Band was at all times used as a vehicle by the Christian Brothers to economically exploit highly vulnerable boys. In its original guise, The Artane Boys Band was used as a front to hide the gross inhumanity, the rapes, beatings, humiliations and death that took place at Artane Industrial School in Dublin.
The original and traditional insignia of blue and red uniforms are still worn to this day and are a shameful reminder of the institutional rape, beatings, humiliation and death still suffered by so many ex-boys from Artane. Just like the Nazi regime’s prisoner uniforms made of coarse grey-blue striped material which had become standard issue in the concentration death camps of Nazi Germany. The blue and red uniforms still worn today are a stark reminder to all survivors of the horrors of Artane boys band and Artane Industrial School. Each of these Artane band uniforms were marked with a boy’s name inked on the inside of the uniform indicating the boys’s category and an identification number that henceforth substituted his name, the same method as the Nazi used in their death camps. It is insulting to still see boys and girls parading on nation television at sports events in the blue and red uniforms that still represent, rape, humiliations and death of the boys of Artane Industrial School and Artane’s boys band. Shame on the GAA, Shame on the Political and Businesses that still support the Artane Boys band-but the biggest shame is reserved on the still behind the scenes of the Christian Brothers and the Irish Catholic Church. Their culture of rape, humiliation and death of many of thousands of the boys of the Artane Boys band.
In view of some deaths of the boys in the band, new boys to the Industrial School were often given the old uniforms and shoes left behind by the murdered. Let’s not forget that these same uniforms are handed down proudly to future generations of children ignorant of what the uniform represented;-The Artane Industrial School for boys and Artane’s boys band. We need to change its name to break the association with the discredited murderous institution, an institution forever know for death, rape, torture and humiliation of thousands of boys. Boys as young as 7 years of age to boys as old as 16, all vulnerable children. All at the mercy of Catholic Christian Brother Pedophiles, 80% of the boys have died since Artane Industrial School was closed in 1969. Many through-Suicide, Drugs, Alcohol, Despair and Murder. This is the true legacy of The Artane Industrial School, Prison Camp, hell-hole for boys and Artane’s boys band. Owen Felix O’Neill
We have far too many Nostalgic Catholic Church Memorials in Ireland, like Grottos to a maligned superstition. It seems that the Virgin Mary who according to the Bible had had 4 sons and an unknown number of daughters, now only appears in dark caves. (Mark 6:3 – Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?”) Millions of huge concrete or iron crosses to a stone age creed that dot the landscape as a grim reminder of the rule of The Cult, now is just the time to remove them.
We should emulate the way Germans treat Nazi memorials. Germany has no monuments that celebrate the Nazi armed forces. We here in Ireland don’t need any memorials either to a murderous, raping Death Cult, the Catholic Church. Tens of Millions of babies, children, women and men died for their evil sins throughout the world, The Cult, the Catholic Church must be held accountable and allowed to wither and die. Time to finally remove their symbols of hate and repression that dot the many lands throughout the world.
Why do we here in Ireland tolerate so many streets, parks, schools, colleges, libraries, other buildings, named after Pedophile Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns.? I think it is now time for change, time to remove and dismantle all offending religious statues, monuments, commendation plaques, street and public buildings named after Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns.
Symbols are powerful things, names of Pedophile Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns, still adorn many villages, towns and cities streets, schools, collages, and parks to this very day. Defenders say they are a part of our Irish heritage and caution against erasing all history. Shameful Irish heritage of slavery as practiced by Religious Institutions where rape, torture and murder of woman and children was actively condoned by the Catholic Church.
Forcing children today to go to a school named after a Clerical pedophile or other Clerics who fought and still fight to dehumanise their mothers and vulnerable children, is wrong. There are nearly 150,800 public buildings, streets, parks and schools, colleges, libraries named after Catholic Church Pedophiles. Ireland is still a monument to Pedophelia as long as we maintain the clerical names of Pedophiles on monuments, streets, parks, and public buildings, as an Irish legacy, gifted to future generations. The Irish Catholic Church and its Clerics, known as The Cult were the dictatorship of evil, the machinery of the State, was under the command of criminals, murderers and pedophile rapists, the Clerics. The Cult regime was characterised by the brutal oppression of women and children in their Religious run Institutions.
Despite Ireland's reputation for not being self-critical with its past, some Irish street names still pay homage to Pedophile Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns. Distorted historical figures who left Ireland with a legacy of cruelty. Their Religious run Institutions, were the rape rooms for the brutish Clerical rapist and their murderous legacies. Ireland needs urgently to confront its shameful historical past, we need an honest reckoning with our brutal past. Far too long, Irish Politicians have turned a blind eye to its shameful history for the longest time, many streets and buildings in Villages, Towns, and Cities are mostly in need of a new identity. The shame, we here in Ireland must be the only country in the world with streets and buildings named after Pedophile Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns.
Today many of these Pedophile Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns, would be hanging for there crimes and sins, of rape, torture and murder of thousands of vulnerable children. It’s time to remove Clerical names form the monuments, the street names, public buildings, and national parks of Ireland. This is not an erasure of history, the names of Clerics was sought and used to reinforce a reasserted Catholic Church’s dominance over Ireland in part by romanticising The Death Cult. I say- “Justice delayed is justice denied.”
To many people and not just Survivors, symbols are powerful things and symbols shape our understanding of the world. To walk down a street, enter a building, or a park named after a Pedophile Cleric, that shapes your experience in that place. That tells you that place is not for you, we must change that, immediately.
We need a new wave of soul-searching here in Ireland, not only about the Catholic Church and its Clerics we place on pedestals. Their brutality, their reign of murder and rapes, but about whether to continue honouring these same Clerics, past and present who supported child trafficking, turned a blind eye on slavery in their Religious Institutions, plus the brutal rapes and murder of vulnerable women and children that took place in these same Religious Institutions, in Ireland.
Also here in Ireland we have to this day, commendation plaques given out by grateful local councils, thanking our band of murderous rapist, torturous Clerics, honouring the same cult of death of Pedophile Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns. Commendation plaques, and money prizes, from the public purse, local government officials, singing the praises of a cult of death, for their good and brave action of, flushing thousands of vulnerable babies and children into Septic Tanks. The rape, torture, flogging and then murder of thousands of vulnerable mothers, their babies and children.
Then we have the trafficking of tens of thousands more of vulnerable babies and children into the pedophile slave markets of North America, and the deliberate killing of tens of thousands more vulnerable babies and children with starvation. A duel disaster of under nourished and chronic diseases as a result, all mixed with beatings, rape, religious misery and finally a painful death. The Cult of Pedophile Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns, that ran Ireland, then disposed of the emaciated bodies of tens of thousands of babies and children into Septic Tanks, mixed with their human waste or other Cesspools, still to be uncovered, as a final humiliation. And we here in Ireland now honour the same cult of death of Pedophile Catholic Priests, Brothers, and Nuns with commendation plaques, cemented onto public buildings, like libraries, national parks, schools and colleges as a reminder to all including Survivors. We, the Cult are still the power, Survivors who still live in pain, daily from their broken and stolen childhoods. Owen Felix O’Neill
The Pedophile Oblates
The Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate operated in Ireland, one of the most notorious Industrial schools in the world, St Conleth’s, Daingean from 1870 until 1973 in County Offaly.
Daingean, was the 2nd reformatory set up in Ireland. The first was St. Kevin's Glencree, Co. Wicklow. St Conleth’s, Daingean was a reformatory school, the place where boys aged between 12-19 were sent when convicted of a crime. Crimes ranging from stealing a loaf of bread to burglary. In its history Daingean became a forbidden prison for adult criminals. From 1871 to 1934, it became a reformatory school for children run by the Oblates. Daingean officially closed on 16th November 1973, and the boys were mostly transferred to Scoil Ard Mhuire, Lusk. Daingean Reformatory is listed as one of the schools involved in the worst clerical rape of children. Flogging was the main form of punishment before and after rape.
An 'inmates' (aka 12 year old boy's) story
The lovers of rape the wayward Oblates, a gang of philosopher pedophiles, taunting sadists and masochist murders that ran St Conleth’s, Daingean in County Offaly, in their General Statement given to the Child Abuse Investigation Committee, (The Ryan Report) asserted that they, the mentally crippled metaphysician Oblates had high ideals. They ‘brought a vision of their own’ cruelty to the work, ‘arising from their long experience in this work and their nature as a rapist religious order. The work was accepted as a mission: the Christian welfare of the boys, their rehabilitation in so far as they were wayward, and their preparation to earn their livelihood as far as possible. They developed a tradition of cruelty going back to 1857’.
The Commission into Child Abuse report into St Conleth"s reformatory school in Daingean has concluded that the boys sent to the school 'lived in a climate of fear', were regularly subjected to inhumane floggings, rape and murder.
The Catholic Order of pedophiles that ran the school in Daingean, The sadist Oblates has apologised 'unreservedly' for its 'shortcomings' and the 'serious consequences' of public flogging, rape, torture, and murder of thousands of vulnerable children in its care. The Oblates of Mary Immaculate according to The Commission found that 'corporal punishment was often excessive and was administered by staff using a wide range of weapons. Relatively minor offences gave rise to severe punishment' and while there were never any convictions of sexual rape of children, or murder, The Commission did conclude that 'sexual rape and flogging of children by The Oblates took place in Daingean.
The Commission concluded that 'Flogging was an inhumane and cruel form of corporal punishment, on children, there was no control of The sadist Oblates in the infliction of flogging children.
The boys were 12 to 18, and a total of 5,275 boys passed through in 33 years until its closure in 1973. Sexual Rape after corporal punishment, of flogging was the norm, practiced by most of the sadist Oblates that ran the school. Later it transpired that one of the worst Brother’s in the Industrial School had a conviction for raping young boys in Wales. The school and The Oblates knew this, but did nothing. In the 17 years that that Brother was working in St Conleth’s, Daingean he raped, and flogged hundreds of more boys. A few boys died at his hands.
According to the Ryan Commission into Child Abuse Report.
'Daingean had a system of administering corporal punishment in a formal, almost ritualised way. The ritualistic flogging and rape of boys in Daingean was done on a production line by The Oblates, and carried out most nights in the Industrial School.
The same Catholic Religious Order of sadist Priests, Brothers and Nuns, The degenerated Oblates, also ran one of the worst Industrial schools in Canada, St. Anne's Indian Residential School, Fort Albany, Ontario, Canada. Also ran the worst Industrial School in Ireland, St Conleth"s reformatory/prison school in Daingean, County Offaly.
The sadist Oblates, a Catholic Religious Order of Priests, Brothers and Nuns, ran 57 other Residential Schools in Canada in which we now have discovered secret graves of thousands of raped, flogged and murdered children, soon to be accounted for.
St. Anne’s Indian Residential School in Northern Ontario was a place of horrific rape, murder and crimes against children that took place on a daily base over many decades. The immoral Oblates ran 57 Industrial Schools in Canada, every one of the 57 Industrial Schools has secret graves. The unaccountable deaths of tens of thousands of vulnerable children will surface in the coming weeks and months. So far 6 Industrial Schools have been investigated in Canada and 1,800 secret graves have been found. This is a true nightmare in the making, all in the name of the death cult, the Catholic Church. Every Industrial School, or Indian Residential School or Orphanage or other Religious run Institution that the Catholic Church ran throughout the world, with its band of different Religious Orders of sadist Nuns, pedophile Priests and Brothers, Remember that hundreds of thousands of children were, flogged, tortured, raped and murdered and that’s a fact. I myself spent 18 years in these same Religious Institutions, where I and thousands of other children suffered horrendous daily abuses, and watched other vulnerable children, been raped, flogged, humiliated, and die at the hands of these holy sadists, Nuns, Priests, and Brothers dressed up as holy Clerics. Helpless Children died around them, powerless to resist, the daily feed of rape, torture and death. Owen Felix O’Neill
Letterfrack Industrial School.
We were children.The Industrial Schools, Orphanages, Mother and Baby Homes and Magdalene Laundries of Ireland, were just child brothels, rape rooms for the Clerics. A smorgasbord for pedophile Clerics and Christian rapists who preyed on and terrorised vulnerable children in all the religious run Institutions in Ireland. Floggings and nights of stark terror as Clerics took their pick of the frightened children as they hid in their nightmares. Vulnerable children whose childhoods and lives the Clerics destroyed and stole. The rape was worse for the girls, who were sometimes violently impregnated by their Christian rapists.
The screaming children were passed around, from pedophile Cleric to pedophile Cleric. The rapes would stay with the child for eternity, the Clerics would simply smile and confess their filthy sins, holy water was used to cleanse their foul mouths, sinful spite was used as a lubricant for their uncleansed members. The full magnitude of the children's suffering has yet to be entirely understood, but each child, now a man or woman, hides their delirium of shame, some bury their grief, in oceans of soothing alcohol. Others swam with psychedelic drugs, hoping to change their perception of their altered state of consciousness. Many vulnerable children, damaged as men, ended their hopeless lives of misery at the end of a crying rope, or a cocktail syringe of Christian hypocrisy, pumped into drug hungry veins, or a multitude of other sad endings, rough sleeping on cold, wet streets of despondency. Desolated streets filled with shame and wondering despair are full of dead humanity’s bones and everything unclean.
Still tens of thousands of apparitions of children haunt and roam the ghostly mass graves, overflowing septic tanks and haunted Industrial school hallways. 150,000 vulnerable children passed through these forbidden gates, 21,579 survived today. Each minute, each hour, each day, each week, each month, each year, we die, stories are untold. Sadly our band of Survivors decrease, even as I write and record our collective history.
I walk daily with both the living and the dead, I recently walked in the soulless cemetery while in Letterfrack Industrial School with a six year old boy, a kindred spirit. Yet I knew his name, though unspoken was Sean. Sean whose brutal death he wore on his exposed back. The scars of a flogging and rape at the hands of endoparasite Christian Brothers, was still raw, raised welts and strafe marks crisscrossed his back.. Sean led me safely through the spiky evergreen hollies, he recognised our mutual pain and suffering. Sean brought something else, his benevolent spirit to sooth me, a very angry man. Ectoparasite infestation was and is Christianity, which is a cancerous parasite feeding on the body of humanity. Clerical parasites with their snouts, buried daily, deep into the rape and murder of children.
God didn’t send this Kindred Spirit as I stood with Sean, as I witnessed the secret graves, beyond the giant evergreen hollies, used to guard the forgotten graves. The children’s stories, untold, their shame is engraved on any passing leaf, the murmuring wind carries a voice, their voices that pass through the drooping evergreens. The holly bears the crown of a child suffering, each spike carries a tear that drops into the crevices of this unswept earth. Beneath the carpet of wild moss rests charity and maternal love, the unwanted children hide, beneath a hundred years of brutal Christian hate, fed on superstitious fears. Many Winters of Conifers of fallen leaves, deposit and hide their suffering, but their brutal pain can be seen, if one looks, etched and felt in the surrounding air or hidden by a small clump of moss, lurking beneath a confused conifer.
The hidden cemetery floor is covered with 85 broken heart shaped stones, used as grave markers, each stone was engraved with a name, age, and passing year. The cause of the children’s death was never recorded- age 5 one read, name unknown, my tears of anger seeping into the crevices of their anguished graves. For here lies a genocide of crimes against vulnerable children. This forsaken cemetery while barely kept is guarded by a drunk, leaning Virgin Mary, she denies the horrors, the Mary Cult of death, now deny these horrors, their worthless clerics and their religion caused the rape and murder of the innocences, the children, now unfolding in her name. While a few feet away one large granite stone obelisk, covered, partly in creeping fine moss, now cracked, listing the names of 61 children disposed of, beneath the corrupt obelisk. The front panel reads —--
“ Dear Lord Grant Eternal Rest to all our Deceased” You are all Remembered by The Brothers, Lay Staff and Pupils of St. Joseph’s
How insulting that the 210 plus children, now dead, were in the care of the Christian Brothers, who flogged, terrorised, raped and then murdered these vulnerable children, and disposed of into these thankless mass graves. Only to be remembered by their pedophile tormentors, chiselled in cold stone on a stone obelisk by their rapists for eternity- These degenerate clerics, these murderous pedophile Christian Brothers. This is truly outrageous.
No amount of fresh colourful paint on the cold grey stone walls, can hide the stench that percolates the suffering and pain, of floggings, rapes, torture and murder of vulnerable children, that took place within this godforsaken hellhole of Letterfrack Industrial School. Now the brilliant red colour to the front of the Industrial School outer walls, acts as a flash beacon in the lush wild Connemara landscape. In reality the red colour of hell is a bleak reminder that it was a real hell on earth for the thousands of vulnerable children who resided there, a living hell and a continuous nightmare on a daily basis for its few remaining Survivors.

751 Secret unmarked graves were found at former Canada Industrial School, run by the Catholic Church
In Canada's Saskatchewan Province has found unmarked graves of 751 children on the grounds of a former Industrial School, run by the Catholic Church. It comes just weeks after a similar discovery of a single grave of children 215 in British Columbia Canada. The Cowessess First Nation began a ground-penetrating radar search on 2 June, after the discovery of215 unmarked graves at the Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia. This was and is cultural genocide. The last of the Industrial Schools in Canada closed in 1996. The British Columbia, Industrial School closed in 1969. The Industrial Schools in Canada as in Ireland were known for raping children physically, and emotionally, and finally murdering them, disposing of their battered bodies into mass graves.
The Cowessess First Nation of Saskatchewan Province said there were 751 "recorded hits" at the site and noted there could be more than one set of remains at each "hit." . The Marieval Indian Residential School operated from 1899 to 1997. The Canadian Police would be treating the site "like a crime scene.” And the lying Catholic Church said that the removal of headstones from the cemetery was wrong. "It was a terrible thing to do, which, given the history of Residential Schools and the pain and suffering that many survivors felt on top of all that, it's a disaster," Archbishop Donald Bolen said. Of course here in Ireland they, the Catholic Church, disposed of 800 babies and children into Septic Tanks, that in truth the Catholic Church never had the respect for the sanctity of life especially of children.
Chief Wayne Semaganis from the First Nation in Saskatchewan says;- "Even today there is still dismissiveness from the general public — that it's a history, it's in the past.” "No it's not in the past. It's today. It's ongoing.… [The children buried at residential schools] were murdered — because if there were accidents, if they died of natural causes, somebody would have been alerted.” "The Catholic Church denies us our right to grieve. That is what really hurts.” The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Regina said the removal of headstones from the cemetery was wrong. "It was a terrible thing to do, which, given the history of residential schools and the pain and suffering that many survivors felt on top of all that, it's a disaster," Archbishop Donald Bolen said.
The Catholic Church that ran the Industrial School for children, knew of the secret graves, and destroyed any and all documents which would implicate the Catholic Church and its crimes against vulnerable children. "There are oral stories that there are adults in this gravesite as well.” According to people in the know. As of yesterday, June 24th. 2021;- 751 unmarked graves" were found at the site of the former Industrial School for children. "This is not a mass grave site, these are unmarked graves of raped, tortured and murdered children” The Canadian Government says the Catholic Church is not fully cooperating with the investigations, 150,000 children passed through these Industrial Schools in Canada.
According to Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, which published a report that found the country's residential school system of Industrial Schools run by the Catholic Church, that many of the staff were Irish and trained in Ireland, a few of the Clerics also worked in similar Industrial Schools here in Ireland. The deaths of the vulnerable children amounted to cultural genocide. A local Monsignor, Owen Keenan, said that people were ignoring the “good” done at these ghastly Industrial Schools. Monsignor Owen Keenan doesn't talk about the 15,000 children hidden in secret mass graves, on the site of these Industrial Schools, the youngest child was 3 years of age.
The Brothers and Priests of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate have been involved in several sex scandals in both Ireland and Canada, since the founding of the Religious Order in the 19th. century. The Oblates are a known group of roving pedophiles and have been directly convicted in the rape and murder of 10s of thousands of children in their care. 85% of Missionary Oblates Brother and Priests that operated in Canada’s Industrial Schools were born and trained in Ireland. Any Religious run Institutions in Ireland, Canada, North America or Australias was a place where childhood died, and that’s a fact. The Oblates ran one of the worse Industrial Schools/ St Conleth"s Reformatory School in Daingean, Co Offaly, in which the daily rape, torture, floggings and murder of hundreds of boys by The Oblates was the norm. Let’s read what the Ryan Report said about St Conleth"s Reformatory School in Daingean run by The Oblates Brothers.
Something else discovered at the secret burial site of the 751 graves of children was that the Brothers and Priests of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate- deliberately removed the headstones, so families would not find the graves. In Canada removing headstones is a crime. The Canadian Police are treating the vast secret grave site as a crime scene. The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations Chief Bobby Cameron described the finding as "a crime against humanity”. "The world is watching Canada as they begin to unearth and discover the remains of genocide, the slaughter of defenceless children, murdered, tortured and raped in the Catholic Industrial Schools. Chief Bobby Cameron said "We had concentration camps here, concentration camps of children, like they had in Ireland. Canada will be forever known as the nation that tried to exterminate the First Nations children.” The Catholic Church will forever be known as The Death Cult, in the massacre of tens of thousands of vulnerable children.
The Industrial School’s discovery, run by the Catholic Church, will reopen old wounds in Canada and here in Ireland, about the lack of information and accountability surrounding the Residential School System of slave children, which forcibly separated indigenous children from their families. The same happened here in Ireland, where there are still 28 secret graves of thousands of unaccountable children, raped, tortured and murdered in Ireland’s Industrial Schools yet to be discovered.
The Canadian Government said that 4,100 vulnerable Children were murdered in one Industrial School in British Columbia Canada. But in reality the number of defensible children raped, tortured and murdered in another Industrial School in Canada's Saskatchewan Province is shocking. The vulnerable children were dumped into secret graves and the numbers are likely to be 15,000 plus, vulnerable children.
So far, over 1,300 secret graves have been located at 6 Industrial Schools. There are Hundreds of Industrial Schools across Canada and America, all run by the Catholic Church, many of the staff who ran these Industrial Schools will be Irish Catholic Priests, Irish Nuns, and Irish Christian Brothers.
To put this horror into perspective, the Canadian Government originally estimated that 4,000- 6,000 children were raped, beaten and murdered in searching only 6 of the Industrial Schools across Canada. In the 6 Industrial Schools they found 1,300 unmarked graves that the Catholic Church did not tell the Canadian Government about. The Catholic Church deliberately removed all visual markings, like headstones at all their secret burial sites at the Industrial Schools so that the thousands of raped and murdered children would never be found. That is a true crime of Humanity, the Slaughter of the Innocence, the Massacre of tens of thousands of vulnerable children by the Roman Catholic Church. Owen Felix O'Neill
