THE DAIL WILL DEBATE TOMORROW ON MOTHER AND BABY HOMES. You will probably be aware that the Commission set up to investigate the Mother and Baby Homes scandal, have set out to destroy the testimonies of the survivors. HOW DARE THEY! And Minister O Gorman may, or may not, retrieve a back-up copy of the tapes. For God’s sake – this is important history – is this the best they can do? We say RESPECT THE SURVIVORS – demand those tapes now!

WAS ENOUGH DAMAGE NOT DONE? How shameful to treat the survivors on the Mother and Baby Homes, as though they don’t matter. The Commission set up to investigate their issues, produced a report that effectively abuses the survivors by disrespecting their testimony and then by erasing it. I spoke in the the Dáil, to an amendment that looks to retrieve the files containing their stories, and to SHOW SOME RESPECT.

I can’t recommend this new pamphlet too highly. It gives a brilliant insight into Irish society since the 20’s, the toxic combination of church and state, and the horrors it engendered, particularly for women, like the hellish Mother and Baby Homes. Also gives essential facts that will help with the task of separating Church and State.
