Gathering to celebrate survivorship of institutional abuse, May 11th 2019

May 2019 marks two important events for Survivors of institutional abuse. It is the 20th Anniversary of the state apology to survivors and the 10th Anniversary of the publication of the Report of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse (the Ryan Report).

To mark these events the Christine Buckley Centre & Friends are hosting a gathering to celebrate survivorship of institutional abuse. A celebratory afternoon of socialising and music is planned. All survivors of institutional abuse are very welcome and we hope to see you there. This is a free event – to register your attendance click here

Sign Language Interpreters will be available. If you do require a Sign Language Interpreter or any other supports please email

You do not need a ticket to attend, but if you are planning on coming it would be useful to register so we will know how many survivors to expect on the afternoon.
