Tortoise Shack Live – The Mother and Baby Home Report

In this special episode we brought together experts, academics, activists and investigative journalists, to share their knowledge of the social history, the legal requirements, the standard of proof, the gathering of evidence, the construction of findings as well as issues of race and disability contained in the Mother and Baby Homes Report. We consider what could and should happen next and how the focus for now needs to be on ensuring survivor focused redress and justice mechanisms.

Hosted by Dr Vicky Conway, you’ll hear from Historian, DR Sarah-Anne Buckley, Law Lecturer, Máiréad Enright, Solicitor, Fionna Fox, Journalist, Conall Ó Fátharta and Legal Academic, Dr Sinéad Ring.

There’s also a call for action by our friend, Izzy Kamikaze. Please sign and share this petition:,

Thank you to all the contributors and do let us have your suggestions.
