Mass burial of babies another sordid secret

A SHOCKING discovery of a mass grave of 796 babies who died in a mother-and-baby home in Tuam. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil – another dirty little secret.

Church and State in Ireland have always gone hand in hand, so they, too, are responsible for turning a blind eye. How many more of these babies not buried went for medical research? This was raised in the Dail in 1930, but maybe the Government was too busy.

Suffer little children to come on to me, the Lord said. Safe in the Lord's hands they now rest, away from the hands that promised to serve God, but failed.
