Fear of the Collar: The True Story of the Boy They Couldn't Break

by Patrick Touher - £7.99  Ebury Press (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780091917661 | ISBN 10: 0091917662

Sent to Artane Industrial School, Dublin, at seven years of age, Patrick Touher was soon to learn the tough ways of the regime of education and training, prayer and punishment, strict discipline and fearful nights. No allowances were made for emotion, sentiment or boyhood worries. Anything that disturbed the routine was a source of punishment. Artane demanded absolute obedience, absolute submission. This is the inside story, the memories etched forever on the soul of one of Artane's boys.
