Memoir exposes Ireland’s history of child abuse

 Ireland's Big Issue 16 April 2019

It is a testament to her strength that Lily O'Brien is here today; let alone that she has told her heartbreaking story in a new book, ‘The Girl Nobody Wants’. She wrote it to ensure that victims of institutionalised abuse in Ireland are not forgotten: “These children had no human rights. So many of them are dead now, from suicide, drugs, drink; thousands of children. People are not talking about the dead.” (1440 Words) - By Jennifer May
