Child abuse in Ireland

Some of y'all may have heard about the report into child abuse in the Irish Catholic Church. In case you haven't, I would urge you to have a look into it. However, these links come with a big trigger warning.

The BBC website - article from Wednesday dealing with the findings of the inquiry, descriptions of the abuse and the victims feelings and reactions.

From the Morrigan Reborn blog:
Witness reports (definite trigger warning)
A letter to the Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) recommending what his next line of action should be.
Cross post from The Irish Times.

And in case any of yous are wondering what the Morrigan is, this is the description from her profile:
The MorrĂ­gan is the goddess of war, sovereignty, prophecy, fertility and death on the battlefield. Scholars debate whether her name means great queen, terror bringer or monstrous woman. She is associated with the raven, wolf and cow. She is often interpreted as a triple goddess, one part of a whole. Multiple meanings and interpretations throughout history.
A really interesting goddess.
