'I don't feel sorry for myself. Today everything is all right. I look at it is this way, it can't ever be as bad as it was then...'. Sean Hogan was just eight years old when he was confined in the notorious Artane Industrial School under the brutal regime of the Christian Brothers. In and out of care throughout his childhood, Sean was so badly neglected by his alcoholic parents that he never even knew what day his birthday fell on, or how old he was - things he only learned as an adult. But when he arrived at Artane, instead of receiving the care he so desperately needed, he entered into months of horrific sexual abuse at the hands of some of the brothers. Now, for the first time, he feels able to tell his story - and reveal the devastating truth of what really happened in Ireland's industrial schools. "In Harm's Way" is a powerful and moving story of astonishing hardship and near despair, but also of triumph over terrible adversity.
On leaving the Artane, Sean Hogan fell into a life of crime, leading to a time in Mountjoy prison - he then tried to take his life, twice. In spite of everything he has endured, Sean is a strong father and husband and is not bitter about his experiences. He lives with his family and runs a small business with his wife. Sean Hogan is a pseudonym.
