the nun's van in that photo mentions 'family'.

right, what the feck would that bunch of superstitious virgins know about family life ?
Actually they're probably all atheist lesbian communists on the far left of the Democratic Party who stopped believing in God after Vatican II, but like identifing as nuns, and are encouraged by their Democratic supporting bishops. You'd don't seem to be able to differentiate between the trads and liberals in Catholicism.

And everyone was born into a family anyway.

It's worse now, the traditional family has broken down, and mass immigration. We will soon be like the African slaves in America, a deracinated and mongrelized people with no culture or heritage to call our own.

a tsunami of young men into the West has finished 'the traditional family' everywhere. Aided and abetted by the Welfare State.

How do FF / FG / Lab our get away with not having looked after any of these People ? ?

You’d think that FF / FG / Lab were Brand New in Town ! !

FF / FG / Lab really have pulled off the Magic Trick of Not Being There ! ! !

Standard political scapegoating.

In this instance, however, I'd give the state some slack. They simply did not have the resources to deal with unmarried mothers and their children.

Ireland was an impoverished fledging state. Imposing 21st century standards upon them is obtuse chronological snobbery.

well their parents must have failed somewhere along the line ? the Darwin awards.

Let's roll back the tape here a second. You're blaming the parents of those who became clergy? Do you blame too the parents of the daughters who became pregnant also?

One other point.

In sections of Irish society a lot of things were done, rightly or wrongly.
It was the convention that the eldest inherited the farm for example, and the second entered the seminary/novitiate.
That the way society was.

I've no doubt that many people in the clergy weren't there because they wanted to be there. They were there out of convention.

Meh. Talk is cheap.

Where is the compensation money from the Vatican
for the many crimes of their minions

Get them where it hurts: Their property portfolios and art collections.

How do you propose to do that?

that is why legal actions will follow
Hopefully people are also now recommended to get an autopsy requirement if they are been forced to take new emergency medication that has been brought into the market due to emergency legislation. Is History about to repeat itself but in an even worse horror film form?
Let the legal actions begin!
