[edit] Information

In Ireland this June 2014 it was revealed that a mass grave contained the remains of nearly 800 babies and infants. The children died whilst in the care of Catholic nuns at a mother and baby home between 1925 and1961. The mortality rate was five times that of babies born outside the convent walls. The Irish Government has launched an inquiry. It is the latest of several enquiries into the historical abuse of women and children in the care of the Roman Catholic Church. But as Sue Lloyd-Roberts discovers there are those calling for the new inquiry to cover all the institutions run by the nuns, not just the Mother and Baby homes. Survivors of the notorious Magdalene Laundries say a recent report into them was filled with omissions and inaccuracies and want the Laundries to be part of a broad new inquiry. They're asking whether the whole truth of what women and children suffered behind Ireland's convent walls ever come out.
