Commemorating Mary Raftery

To commemorate the courageous and deep-hearted Irish journalist Mary Raftery, who did so much to inform people in her country about abuse of children in the Irish Catholic church, Turlough O'Carolan's beautiful lament for Owen Roe O'Neill, played by John Doan.

As Tom Doyle's commemoration to which the link above points says, the Murphy report, which exposed the depths of abuse in the Dublin archdiocese (and how the abuse had been covered up), happened in large part because Raftery's documentary Cardinal Secrets began to uncover the abuse.

Deducant te angeli, Mary Raftery.
