In one tweet, she wrote:

“Now I am going to retire to mourn my son. When I’m ready, I’ll tell you exactly how the Irish state, in the ignorant, evil, selfish, deceitful forms of Tusla and the Higher School of Economics, contributed to his death. Magdalene Ireland never left. Ask the youth. “

In another, O’Connor wrote:

“And any statement by Tusla that they a) did their best, b) cared or c) felt deepest sympathy for anyone here besides their lawyers is a bunch of shitty trap that killed too many children, and she didn’t wash off. this time. Too many children are dying in front of Tusla. “

She then thanked Shane’s father, Donal Lanny.

She wrote:

“I would also like to thank Shane’s dad, Donal Lanny. You tried too, Donal. And Shane adored you. And I will always remember how nice you were to him. You were a wonderful father. I am very sorry for your loss. “

“I don’t know how I’m going to live without you.”

Shane, baba, hold on to me. Wherever you are, please stay with me. My child. I don’t know how I’ll live without you. ”
