Call for Commission in light of Tuam Mother and Baby Homes revelations

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A Sinn Féin Deputy has published a Dáil motion which will be debated this week, calling for a Truth Commission to establish the facts about Ireland’s Mother and Baby Homes.
Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire says the revelations of recent weeks at Tuam, and subsequent reports, have shocked and angered Irish people.
He says survivor groups have also criticised ‘behind closed doors hearings’ and he believes we need to shine a light on the historic mistreatment of women and children in Ireland.
