A remembrance ceremony will take place outside the Dáil today for babies who died at a mother and baby home in Tuam, Co Galway.

800 seconds of silence will be held in memory of the almost 800 babies who died at St Mary's between 1925 and 1961.

One year on since the Tuam babies tragedy made global headlines, survivors say they are deeply disappointed by the lack of progress made in the inquiry.

Clodagh Malone was adopted after she was separated from her unmarried mother at the home.
