New evidence that Irish children were murdered | The Ragged Wagon: Marion was placed in St. Joseph’s industrial school, Summerhill outside Athlone, County Westmeath in 1937. She was only a baby. She recalls “a girl who had her appendix out.” The nuns made the girl get up to work, despite the fact that when she came back from hospital she was ordered to rest. “A few days after they forced her to get up, she died. She was a lovely girl and she was only 15 years old.” There are similar reports from most of the industrial schools.?
