Kathleen O'Shea is a pseudonym. When Kathleen was awarded compensation in 2002 under the Residential Institutions Redress Act for the abuse she endured in the convent she was forced to sign a gagging clause that prevents her from identifying herself or the institutions involved in her traumatic childhood. But she is still determined to speak out, so now does so anonymously.
