An Investigation… and an independant one funded entirely by the Catholic Church and not by the taxpayers must be undertaken. Otherwise there are only allegations and the denial by the Catholic Bishops and the deflection of blame onto the unwed mothers. There are only allegations of Satanic Ritual Murder and dismemberment and decapitation circulating on the internet. The reluctance by the Gardai to do their job is what perpetuates conspiracy theories about what went on there. How will the Gardai step up? When people come together and demand that they do. Witnesses are coming forward publicly to describe what they know about the burial of children throughout Ireland and abuses suffered by them. This is the story that is being denied but can no longer be silenced. But the story must be tempered with facts and not hysteria or else it will be doomed to be buried along with those children.
My brushes with officialdom on the subject of this scandal in the last 48 hours suggest that many still feel there is little or no evidence to support the claims the Bon Secours nuns buried 796 infants and children in a disused septic tank.
This is wishful thinking. Although the evidence falls far short of what would be required in court it indisputably makes the case for a Garda or state investigation.

It suffices to say his evidence proves there are bodies there. But how many and belonging to who?
