There has been much dissatisfaction with Caranua  , the independent State Body set up to help people who, as children, experienced abuse in residential institutions in Ireland and have received settlements, Redress Board or Court awards.
It is supposed to help with things like housing, education, medical needs or counselling.
Many people accuse it of being obstructive to people in desperate need. Perhaps someone who knows more can write an article on Caranua, or post links in comments, to say why the situation is so bad for many and that a survivor feels so strongly as to to go on hunger strike because of it.
Many thanks to Shame of Ireland website  for bringing my attention to this. In the spirit of solidarity and friendship can survivors reach out to those in Ireland. Twitter @ShameOfIreland
