Mother & Baby Homes – Behind Closed Doors – The Baby Brokers
In Support of All Mothers & Children of Sean Ross Abbey & All Mother and Baby Homes.
In the last 35 years or so I had learned of the Magdalene Laundries and why exactly young girls had been sent there and more recently after hearing of the Tuam Babies Scandal (Which broke my heart) decided that I wanted to understand more of what was happening in these places.
Five years ago I was invited to the Sean Ross Abbey Commemorations but unfortunately due to other commitments was unable to attend the first three, but did however attend the fourth and this years Commemorations in Roscrea, Tipperary Ireland.
After attending the last year accompanied by my husband we decided that we would show our support every year from then on.
‘Not long after our return from last years 2017, it was all over the news about Smyllum Park Orphanage only seven miles from my own home town’
I am happy to say that this years Commemorations at Sean Ross Abbey was of much bigger attendance and I hope each year will be bigger and bigger.
This year we had the unveiling of the Bench & Newly made Plaque in memory of Sean Ross Abbey Mothers & Children.
I have now decided to add to my page on Facebook more support for the cause, one of the things I have learned through doing my own Family Tree is that I am able to get access to some Irish records over here in Scotland that the those in Ireland are unable to.
I also want to help fight for those in the Republic of Ireland to be able to have the right to gain access to their Birth Certificate & All Documentation in relation to those who have been Adopted.
The U.K. have the legal right to all such documents and it should be no different to the Republic of Ireland. Re: Freedom of Information Act 2014
