    of course its good news! these women have been held against their will for years now they are free and can get the help they need mentally and family members would think its good news that loved ones they thought were gone can be reunited with each other

    These ‘they’ll never be right comments’ bug the sh@t out of me. I understand the sentiment but come on! Who are we to say what is ‘right’. Sure a person’s personality can change because of severe and prolonged stress and trauma but that doesn’t mean they are better off left in hell or worse still dead!!! Also the human spirit is very resilient and even in these situations many find coping mechanisms Of course it’s good news. 3 people had their freedom denied to them and now they have it back. Bloody brilliant. Wish them all the best on their road to normality again.

    “They are now elderly” – Sean Prendeville. Elderly? one of them is only 30, the others 57 and 69, hardly elderly? great news, hope they can enjoy the rest of their lives now.

    That’s a fair question, bob. It crossed my mind, too, as I read the article – hence it’s a fair question:) How do they, especially the two older women, adjust to the world after being out of it for so long? One factor that may help their transition should be all the unpaid wages/pension that have accrued.
