James Downey: We must use our outrage over CRC to drive real change
Elizabeth Shannon, wife of an American ambassador to Ireland decades ago, is still remembered here for something she said about the Irish. She found that we had no "sense of outrage".

The Central Remedial Clinic affair has provoked outrage on a scale unknown in her time or since. It has touched a nerve.
