Waterford book of solidarity


Large numbers have been turning out in Waterford to sign a book of solidarity with the victims of child abuse in Ireland’s institutions.

The mayor of Waterford, Jack Walsh, said he had been approached by a number of people who asked him if he would provide them with a means of publicly registering their solidarity with the victims of abuse. Such a move would be similar to initiatives in Dublin and Cork following the publication of the Ryan commission report.
