Sisters of Nazareth nuns have given their evidence to Northern Ireland’s Historical Abuse Inquiry in a “haphazard and piecemeal fashion”, the inquiry has been told. The inquiry is investigating abuse claims against children’s residential institutions from 1922 to 1995.
Nazareth House Children’s Home (above) and St Joseph’s Home, Termonbacca, were both run by the Sisters of Nazareth. The Derry homes are among a total of 13 residential institutions currently under investigation by the inquiry. To date, 434 people have contacted the inquiry to allege they were abused as children.
