Call for road to be named in memory of baby home victims

The Western Distributor Road

A city councillor has called for the Western Distributor Road in Knocknacarra to be renamed in memory of the children who died in Mother and Baby Homes nationwide.
Councillor Cathal O’ Conchuir says the scandal is ‘our holocaust’ – and the most innocent and precious lives that passed away in the homes must be remembered.
He’s to request that the road be renamed ‘Bothar Mathair agus na Leanai’.
The Sinn Fein Councillor is also calling for a book of condolence to be opened at City Hall for the children who died in the homes.
Councillor O’ Conchuir says it would be a fitting gesture to ensure what happened is never forgotten.
