Breeda, of the Tuam Survivors’ Network, writes:
We have together with representatives of the 300+ women who crafted the amazing #796 square ‘stitched with Love’ blanket, arranged a Healing Ceremony for the site to take place at 1.30pm.
Artist Barbara O’Meara of Dublin explored the idea of having many hands make light work of the 796 individual white square pieces, knitted and crotchet, to construct a covering for the Tuam site.
Families and survivors will take the blanket – which is now in four pieces representing the four provinces from where the women, mothers of the children came, and it will placed on the ground where the remains were discovered while a healing ceremony will follow…
Events in TUam, County Galway tomorrow to mark Remembrance Day.
