The Boy From Glin Industrial School

by Thomas Wall

This is the amazing story of a three year old boy who was detained in Glin Industrial School, Co Limerick, where he endured cold, hunger and was routinely beaten and worst of all sexually abused.

this book takes you inside the walls of the Industrial School and describes in detail the daily routine of the harsh regime which the boys had to submit to on a day to day basis.

Over the years, over 35,000 Irish children were detained in a network of Industrial Schools where they had little chance of developing a normal childhood, this leaves an appalling legacy on the social history of Ireland.
