Rapport sur les foyers mères-enfants et les institutions religieuses et étatiques

  • January 2021

On 12 January 2021, the Irish government published the Final Report of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes, institutions where Irish women who had children outside marriage (then known as “unmarried mothers”) and their children (then known as “illegitimate children”) were admitted in the 1922-1998 period. These homes were part of a wider network of institutions in Irish villages, towns and cities, including industrial schools, Magdalen laundries and reformatories.

The almost 3,000-page report documents the origins, running and closure of these institutions and the church-state interactions, at a local level, that took place in relation to them over many decades.

Catholic and Protestant authorities have expressed their shame at the findings revealed by the report, which they accepted fell a long way short of even basic Christian standards.
