Are missing ‘Irish’ children buried in Graves?

The 20th century saw the St. Mary’s Mother and Baby  home, for so many, undergo a period of uncertainty when it came to the lives of the many that were lost. Mostly children, from various causes and complaints.

Years later, it still puzzles the minds of the natives of the community. One historian who lived in the village, came back home to shed some light on the mass deaths of children, some younger than one year old.

“……But Corless now believes she knows where the children may be buried”  says the news report.

 

When will closure be brought to this village? A mystery to everyone what happened.

 

The opening to the home for mothers and babies in 1925 to 1961. Hundreds of babies died over this period.
