A commission of inquiry into the scandal of the former “mother-child houses” for single mothers in Ireland has found 9,000 deaths in these establishments run for decades by Catholic nuns, according to a report released Tuesday.
Prime Minister Micheal Martin has announced that he will present an “apology” from the Irish state in the affair which has highlighted “worrying” levels of mortality in these establishments.
“It is difficult to imagine the scale of the tragedy and the heartache behind this figure of 9,000 children and babies,” said Irish Minister for Children Roderic O’Gorman.
