Kenneth Doyle will read Excerpts from Mother From Hell.


The book Mother From Hell tells the story of Kenneth M. Doyle and his brother Patrick. For sixteen years our home was a place of suffering and pain. Behind the doors of our ordinary three bedroom house in Tullamore we were subjected to every kind of deprivation and humiliation at the hands of the one person who should have loved and protected us-our own mother. Stripped naked and savagely beaten, locked up for days on end, we were singled out from our siblings for a catalogue of abuse. Our mother beat us, broke bones, starved us and even forced us out to steal for her. But despite numerous official reports of abuse from social workers at the midland health board and the GARDA (POLICE) our suffering continued. In our new book Mother from hell we both tell a horrifying story of our abuse and how we survived it.
