Synopsis

My brother Patrick remembers my first beating, of which I assume I was completely unaware. He was just five years old when he watched our mother punching herself again and again in her pregnant stomach while shouting at the top of her voice, 'I don't want this fucking child!'

Ken and Patrick Doyle grew up in a family of nine children. For sixteen years their home was a place of suffering. Behind the doors of their ordinary, three-bedroomed house they were subjected to deprivation, cruelty and humiliation at the hands of the one person who should have loved and protected them - their own mother.

Starved, savagely beaten, locked up for days on end and sent out to steal, their story is a catalogue of abuse. Yet, despite numerous official reports of abuse from social workers and health boards, their suffering continued ...

In Mummy from Hell, the victims tell the horrifying true story of their childhood and how they survived it.

I have no words that can truly say how sorry I am that the system let you guys suffer as you did and still are. Patrick you are blessed by having an angel for a wife and we can only pray that Ken will have his own angel one day. Animals do not behave as Olive did but unfortunately "mothers" who behave as she did are out there. Your courage in Speaking out will make people more aware. God bless you and yours and I wish you a bright and happy future. P.S. I wish I had been your mum, I would have spoilt you rotten.
