Last night.

Tuam campaigner Breeda Murphy, adoptee and activist Eunan Duffy and lawyer Frank Brehany, whose father was a Tuam adoptee, discuss a redress scheme for survivors and the struggle to get local county councils, including most recently Offaly, to publicly apologise for their role in the Mother and baby Home system.

Frank also raises the issue of a ‘gagging order’ made against a Cork Industrial school survivor making it a criminal offence for him to divulge how much compensation he received under the Residential Institutions Redress Scheme.

This is the 12th in a series of shows featuring Breeda and Eunan looking at all aspects of the Mother and Baby Home Commission of Investigation Report. They can be viewed here
