An Irish Industrial School Childhood

Boy 11963 is a unique account of overcoming almost insurmountable obstacles to find out who you truly are. I just saw this book in a SuperValu in Clontarf. It has made my day to discover an Irish Industrial child tell their full story and come out from underneath the shame, secrecy and heartlessness of the Irish Church and State of the 1930’s and 1940’s.

The author John Cameron who was Boy 11963 is a profile in courage.
