The acting Taoiseach is being urged to apologise to the survivors of Ireland's mother and baby homes.

The Coalition of Mother And Baby Home Survivors say an inquiry on the now notorious facilities is causing strife within their community. It was sparked by the discovery of hundreds of babies' remains on the premises of a former home in Tuam.

The group are planning to hold a protest outside the Dáil later today. Paul Redmond, founder of the Coalition of Mother and Baby Home Survivors, says they will continue with their campaign until their demands are met.

"For a lot of people it would simply be the Taoiseach and Government acknowledging and aologising for what has actually happened."

"For a lot of us it's 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 apology and an acknowledgement. And we're just going to keep the pressure on until we get that."
