'I feel my story had to be told. So much evil was done there was a voice inside me shouting, "Justice".' With no one to confide in, Kathy suffered in silence as she was battered by her father and molested by local boys. At the age of eight, she was torn from her family and incarcerated in a series of Catholic homes. When she was sent to a psychiatric unit, she suffered terrifying electric- shock therapy and further cruelty at the hands of her supposed carers. After ending up in a Magdalen laundry, she fell victim to sexual abuse and gave birth to baby Annie just weeks before her fourteenth birthday. Don't Ever Tell is Kathy's harrowing account of her ruined childhood and of her subsequent fight for justice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A devastating account of a stolen childhood . . . with this book [Kathy] succceeds magnificently" * Irish Independent *
"Her story is so horrific, it's almost unbelievable" * She Magazine *
"What's amazing is that not only has O'Beirne had the strength to survive decades of abuse but she has now had the courage to stand up and write about her experiences in an attempt to gain justice for herself and the many other women who suffered likewise" * Morning Star *
"This is already getting lots of coverage and rightly so. O'Beirne is a survivor but what she has endured will test the hardest heart" * Irvine & North Ayrshire Extra *
"An off-putting but essential read" * Sunday Tribune *
