Acting Taoiseach Urged to Apologise to Mother and Baby Home Survivors
April 6, 2016
The acting Taoiseach is being urged to apologise to survivors of Ireland's mother and baby homes.
The Coalition of Mother and Baby home Survivors will hold a protest outside the Dail later today.
The group has said an inquiry into the now notorious facilities is dividing their community.
It was sparked by the discovery of hundreds of babies' remains at the site of a former home in Tuam.
However Paul Redmond founder of the group says survivors are aging and need an apology before it's too late: “For a lot of people it would simply be the Taoiseach in Government acknowledging and apologising for what has actually happened.
“For a lot of us it is to do with full inclusion in the inquiry itself for all survivors so that when something follows from that, all of our community will receive an acknowledgement and an apology.
“And we are just going to keep the pressure up until we get that.”
