Located in the woods behind the local church at Letterfrack is a cemetery which is a brutal reminder to a crueler forgotten past. It is the final resting place of boys as young as four who died far home at the Industrial School, a type of Gulag run by the church and supported by the state. Read about those interred here in my book "Gone the Way of Truth Historic Graves of Galway".
My book will be launched in Charlie Byrnes, Galway City on Friday 20 May at 6pm sharp. All are welcome.
