In Plain Sight

9th October 2011, 16:00:56 UTC

In 2011, Amnesty International Ireland commissioned a report entitled: “In Plain Sight: Responding to the Ferns, Ryan, Murphy and Cloyne Reports”.

There is an obvious, clear and compelling reason why Amnesty International Ireland might commission research such as In Plain Sight. The issue central to this research, the abuse and exploitation of tens of thousands of Irish children in State funded institutions as detailed in the report of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse (the Ryan Report) and the abuse detailed in the Ferns, Murphy (Dublin) and Cloyne Reports, constitute arguably the gravest and most systemic human rights violations in the history of this State.
