9,000 children died in church-run mother and baby homes in Ireland

A shocking report has exposed  “a stifling, oppressive and brutally misogynistic culture” in Ireland, according to the country’s children’s minister.

A judicial commission into a network of religious-run mother and baby homes in Ireland has found that 9,000 children died in just 18 of the institutions which it investigated.

The Irish government will make a public apology.
