What are Mother Baby Homes?

Mother Baby homes were established in Ireland in the 1920s, they acted as an institution that housed unmarried mothers and their children as Irish society excluded them. Some 56,000 unmarried mothers and 57,000 children passed through the doors of these homes which were ran by Roman Catholic nuns. The last Mother and Baby Home was closed down in 1998, in June 2014 the Irish government begun an investigation into 18 Mother and Baby Homes around the country.

What is the Commission of Investigation Report into Mother Baby homes in ROI?

The Final Report of the Commission of Investigation into the Mother and Baby Homes was published on 12th January 2021. The Commission of Investigation was established by the Irish Government in February 2015 to provide a full account of what happened to vulnerable women and children in Mother and Baby Homes during the period of 1922 to 1998 in the Republic of Ireland. The report recorded the death of 9,000 children in these institutes.  The Terms of Reference did not include homes in Northern Ireland despite a number of homes operating in that jurisdiction during the period in question.
