Hi LC, yes there does appear to be some link of immunity afforded to Nurse Gallagher of 78 Lower Drumcondra Rd. I can't help but wonder was it a religious connection of some sort? It's all too much of a coincidence! Worth writing to RTE 1, and ray@rte.ie about it - all should who are having difficulty re: obtaining records from 78!

Did anyone hear the story about falsified BC and baptism cert on the ray darcy show recently?

http://www.rte.ie/radio/utils/radioplayer/rteradioweb.html#!rii=b9%5F21161989%5F19148%5F%5F

The adopted lady spoke of how she was adopted illegally in 1954 after she was born in a private nursing home in Collins Ave, D9 - not very far from nurse gallaghers. At 2 days old she was handed over to her adoptive parents and they registered her in their name.

She found out at 48 she was adopted and also that everyone in her adopted family knew her story but kept it secret from her. She was able to get very basic information from her adoptive mother but could not get any information from official sources. She searched for years and made a tv programme a few years ago. She has now done dna tests and had some luck in finding answers. Maybe that's the way to go for those of us who can't get our information??

After hearing the story and reading newspaper articles in the last few days, it looks like posters on here were right when they said there was some kind of collusion between the midwives, doctors, religious and social workers. Apparently, they were all involved to some degree or another.

Hi LC, Yes I did hear that show and listened with interest.

It is good to hear you concur re: Nurse Gallagher and other nursing home propritress- midwives,  church and state collusion all insured this culture thrived - and thrives still as information is denied to all currently seeking their personal information!
