Book Description

3 Sep 2009
In DON'T EVER TELL Kathy O’Beirne shocked the world with her account of the appalling systematic abuse she and thousands of other girls suffered in Ireland’s notorious Magdalene laundries.

Sadly it was only part of Kathy’s own childhood ordeal.

The impact of the dreadful abuse and sadness she suffered took a long time for Kathy to come to terms with. She battled anorexia and alcoholism for decades, and tried to take her life several times when the mountain she needed to climb seemed too much. Her chief joy became the hundreds of children she rescued and fostered. Kathy’s childhood had been taken away from her, but she was determined to do whatever she could to protect others and fought for many years on behalf of other sufferers. She also fought – and won – her own court battle against the siblings who tried to deny the truth of her story. Now Kathy is fighting another battle against cancer.

Always Dancing is a compelling testament to a remarkable woman who has overcome everything and become a formidable seeker of truth and justice.
