With over 100 Societies in NUIG you are sure to find one for you.
Join PBP on Thursday 28th January from 6pm - 7pm for a talk by Willie Cumming. Willy Cumming will be giving an introduction to his recent pamphlet co-authored with Deirdre Wadding and Cllr. Gino Boyle which makes the case for the separation of Church and State. Responsibility rests â€śmainly with the fathers of their children and their immediate familiesâ€ť suggests the Commission of Investigation on the Mother and Baby Homes. For women Ireland was no doubt was a harsh, judgmental, misogynistic society â€“ but this completely misses how such a society developed. It misses that it was encouraged and sustained by the authorities of both State and Church.
