My story is one of survival, and a true depiction of how from the age of 18 months was physically emotionally and mentally abused. From early childhood right up until my early 40s my siblings, the courts in Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland sentenced my sisters (Joan and Grace) and myself, to spend 14 years in Pembroke Alms Industrial School where we were placed in the care of the Sisters of Mercy. Little did the courts know that they were sentencing us to 14 years of sheer and utter hell. The abuse in Pembroke Alms began, when a nun named Sister Enda arrived and became the principal. Lacking any sort of sympathy towards children, she meted out severe and cruel punishments to children of all ages. During our incarceration in Pembroke Alms, the only mother figure I had was my sister Joan, and it was from there that our close bond grew and we became very attached to each other. In 1959, my mother suffered from TB and I was left in the care of my father and grandmother. Due to the ISPCC deeming my father an unfit parent to look after me and my siblings he gave us away -- From an interview with the author.
