Lota Industrial School was operated by the Brothers of Charity for children with learning difficulties The following text is a excerpt written by Gerard Mannix Flynn after we visited the site in Cork with @lotta_petronella AFTER LOTA (excerpt) Mixed with the late summer breeze is the unheard, undisturbed sound of dropped tears. Unconnected memories chase about here in this abandoned compound, One lonely landscape with acres of longing and outsheds and barns of loss. The late summer sun is not comfortable here. Not just today, it never was. I don’t think it ever will be. Never. There exists places where the unthinkable happened. The unfixable happened here. Purge your own sins now. Wash your own filth. Work your own land and point your finger at us no more. This place is falling in on itself. This church, this landscape – a rotting tree, collapsing in and down upon its failed past. © GM Flynn #lotaindustrialschool #daingean #passagewestindustrialschool #mountstjosephs #paedophilering (Images from Daingean and Passage west reform/industrial school)

Leaving behind three years of amazing encounters with inspiring, soulful people and a home filled with mystery and light. Here we finished editing @landwithoutgod and I started writing and researching Själö- Island of Souls, now in a roughcut stage. This is a special place that I will forever carry with me in my heart. Now it’s time to move on and start a new adventure. #love #barcelonastudio #själö #islandofsouls
In 1968 my three brothers Bernard, Patrick and. Mannix were filmed playing in St Stephens green Dublin. (This is them and another friend in the clip) Shortly after this TV program (Amuigh Faoin Spéir), the Irish State had these young children imprisoned in the industrial school system for not attending school. Our new film ‘Land Without God’ deals with the fallout and devastation this system had on generations of my family and the wider working class communities. Land Without God will be released this Autumn 2019. @lotta_petronella @perryogden @launaulaunau @eclipsepicturesireland @screenireland @windmilllanepictures @highwirepostproduction @riseandshinecinema @anjadziersk #irelandsindustrialschools #reformschools #childabuse #flynn #catholicchurch #amuighfaoinspéir #eamondebuitléir #gerritvangelderen @farcryproductionsltd #cormacbegley

Lota industrial school, Co. Cork was run by the Brothers of Charity for children with learning disabilities. It was one of the many institutions we filmed in as part of our research for this film. The text below was a small section written after our trip to some of Cork city’s many institutions.
