A True Life Story of Life in an Irish Industrial School: Because of the grammar??? Are you serious???? This man tells the story as he knows it and YOU are more concerned with the grammar than the words… Shocked really! These boys were taught how to break rocks, how to hold their breath under water long enough to not drown under the “brothers” hands, how to survive on morsels, how to not tell of the sexual violence they endured, how to wake up every morning feeling un-loved and forgotten by their families. These boys were NOT taught grammar in their “school”. My father was in Letterfrack from 12-16 years of age, sadly he has suffered to this day having never dealt with his childhood… Nobody should ever correct a suffering, dying inside man! Shame on you!!!
