Community of Distrust.
Institute of Public Administration, pp. 117-124.
In 1995 and 1996, the glue which had kept Irish society together apparently dissolved: trust broke down. We have been confronted with what could have hardly been imagined a few years ago. The revelation of the many occurances of incest and severe abuse which takes place behind the closed doors of the home has brought to public consciousness an horrific side of family life. The daily disclosures of clerical sexual abuse struck hard at the heart of traditional Ireland. And then, it was not longer safe to put our life in the hands of medical institutions, as some patients were dying of the neglect or incompetence of "caring" agencies.
