    Oh goody, now just how much money is going to be wasted on an inquiry into this?

    I would imagine a significant number of Pie posters were born in that window of time. 1969 is only 49 years ago. This is not the period of the Famine we are talking about, and yet that continues to engage Pie posters.

    Be prepared for outraged sniffing that it is all in the dim and distant and not remotely relevant now.

    Well, nobody got sent to the clink, as a result of previous inquiries.

    Liam Lawlor did time for not answering questions.

    And then when he made up his mind that he was going to answer the questions, he mysteriously got taken out, on a fast highway, in a city where the police are corrupt, and where nobody got found as responsible.

    Which was very convenient for the maFFia "leadershhip".

    When you make up a "new set of rules" to sit in judgement upon times past, it's a never ending gift.

    It's complete distraction also. And shure isn't that a gift too

    Hugely important to who? To the people who have been living their lives without this knowledge? This is going to cost a lot of money, it's going to upset a lot of people and for what? I'm sick and tired of ridiculously expensive inquiries that lead nowhere.

    The law was broken during the period in question - there is no new set of rules.

    There really is no low that you won't sink to, is there?

    If only Zappone had the same scrupulous concern as to the provenance of the "bearded children" she was so keen to foist on the country. Different ideological horses for different ideological courses eh?

    Whatever happened about all that in the end? We didn't really hear anymore about it.

    Worth listening to for the human side of this. Not, as has been alleged a "new set of rules". As covered in the documentary, one woman was given three (3) birth certs. Clearly in breach of the "old rules".
