Richard Boyd-Barrett Talks About His Biological Mother Sinéad Cusack

with one comment

Congratulations to Richard for doing this interview :

talking openly about his biological mother Sinéad Cusack, and how adoption worked in the 1960’s when the Catholic Church exercised near-dictatorial social control.

Another life touched by the hypocrite Father Michael Cleary :

“Richard’s brother, Douglas Boyd Barrett, was one of the two sons Fr Michael Cleary fathered with his housekeeper Phyllis Hamilton”

Richard’s  support for a pro-choice abortion policy and the decriminalisation of drugs is very welcome.
