When I read that skeletal remains, indicating an infant “on its left side”, lie in a structure that was probably designed for sewage, in the former grounds of the Mother and Baby home in Tuam, I feel sick.
This little mite is possibly in the company of hundreds of other, similar skeletons.
Why dead babies and infants were entombed here is still anybody’s guess, however.
The past is another country.
