‘Time Is Not A Luxury That Many Survivors Have’


Anne Kelly Silke was fostered out of Tuam Mother and Baby Home aged nine.

January 12.


‘Anne was moved from one home to another, more often treated as an unpaid servant than as a family member. Her childhood was one of beatings, deprivation and loneliness. As she grew up, she experienced prejudice for being a “Home Baby” and even found it hard to find a partner locally…’

From a Would You Believe? documentary on Anne and the Tuam babies, RTÉ One.

    I wonder how many “adoptions” were recorded as deaths? I’ll bet that there are more registered deaths than bodies in Tuam.
