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.

Topics include the failed Covid strategy of govt and the recent Mother and Baby Homes report
Brid was on Katie Hannon Saturday programme on radio. Topics discussed were the Mother & Baby Home scandal and Covid issues
Clips of Brid’s contibutions to discussion, remotely, on the following topics: fines for Covid control; essential staff for Covid response; schools and their vulnerability in times of Covid and lastly, Brid’s plea to Michael D regarding the Mother and Baby homes legislation.
Bríd continues to make the case for taking more time before ramming home this Bill and demands of the Minister why he insists on doing so. His response is pathetic
This disgraceful attempt by the government parties, to hide away and seal the records to do with Mother & Baby homes is shameful beyond measure. Bríd spoke passionately against the Bill and the indecent haste with which it is being pushed through.
