No one listens to campaigners

Sir -- I agree with most of what Emer O'Kelly wrote in her article about that child abuse and neglect case in Roscommon. I do not agree with her when she says "we are all to blame for not demanding change".

I have tried and tried and no one listens. I wrote to the junior minister for mental health John Moloney some time back and he promised me a meeting with Barry Andrews but it hasn't happened.

Anyway what does the likes of John Moloney or Barry Andrews know about child abuse and neglect? They came from privileged backgrounds. I wrote to many others too and no luck and no replies from most.
