RTÉ News is reporting that engineering firm, TST Engineering, has carried out a “subsurface radar examination” at the site of the former Bons Secours mother and baby home in Tuam, Co. Galway and that the results will be known within a few days.
The firm was hired by the Irish Mail on Sunday.
“In a statement, the Irish Mail on Sunday confirmed the Ground Penetrating Radar analysis was conducted by TST Engineering.
‘Following consultation and ongoing co-operation with local historian Catherine Corless and the Children’s Home Graveyard Committee, the Irish Mail on Sunday commissioned a survey of the site of the alleged mass grave at the site of the former Tuam mother and baby home at the Dublin Road housing estate.’
‘The results will be analysed, and published in this Sunday’s edition of the Irish Mail on Sunday.’
“The newspaper said the results will also be ‘presented in full to the Committee, and made available in full to the Minister for Children if and when a state inquiry into the site is established’.”
