..... in a first world, English speaking European country, there were 'workhouses' thinly disguised as schools, for 'fallen women'.

What an appalling indictment on a supposedly civilised country, part of the EU, that such abuse could continue and be hushed up. Something else that the Catholic Church has to answer for.
