Mother and Baby Home activists Breeda Murphy, Eunan Duffy and Frank Brehany discuss recent issues affecting the survivor community, including, further redress delays and Katherine Zappone’s ‘reward’.
The panel are asked, is there any political opposition to the ‘General Scheme of a Certain Institutional Burials (Authorised Interventions) Bill’, which will remove the coroner’s role in the investigations of deaths at institutions?
Breeda, Eunan and Frank are behind Separation, Appropriation and Loss Initiative (SALI) and have drafted an alternative bill, The Institutions Recognised or Suspected Burial Grounds Bill 2021, which incorporates ‘the vital role Irish Coroners must play’.
This is the 22nd episode in a series of shows looking at the final report of the Mother and Baby Home Commission of Investigation.
Tonight: historian Catherine Corless and Sarah Anne Buckley of NUIG Oral History project will be on The Late Late Show on RTÉ One starting at 9.35pm.
