My name is Marie-Thérèse O’Loughlin-D’Arcy. I grew up in St. Vincent’s Industrial *School*, Goldenbridge, Inchicore, Dublin 8, Ireland, during the wrong end of the fifties and sixties. It was run by the Sisters of Mercy. I am currently in adult literacy education because of having received only a minuscule amount of education during illegal incarceration period at Goldenbridge.
For further information pertaining to Goldenbridge – which was kindly edited by my tutor/editor Ophelia Benson – please click on following link:
*School* was a euphemism for child-prison.
