Maidir Le: Re: Mary Robinson's Memoir: "Everybody Matters"

This report was 'published' in 1970 and it took until 1973 for this report to be 'debated' in the Oireachtas ... actual it was only debated in the Seanad and it was the young Mary Robinson who made sure the report was put on the record of the Oireachtas. She has my undying gratitude for that.
