The Importance of treating newly discovered Babies and Children in mass graves in Ireland must be handled with dignity and respect and each child must be identified, family found and the child respectfully re-interred.
In a Mother and Baby Home, run by the Nuns, the Sisters of Bon Secours in the town of Tuam, in County Galway, Ireland, a shocking mass grave, a septic tank, contained over 800 bodies of Babies and Children have been uncovered and confirmed. The mass graves of Babies and Children, must be followed up, exhumed and thoroughly investigated by the Irish Police and the Irish State, as an active crime scene. We are talking here of the deaths of over 800 of Babies and Children, flushed into a septic tank. In addition the Commission, “MOTHER AND BABY HOMES COMMISSION OF INVESTIGATION” is also investigating another 17 other Religious Institutions were it is known that thousands of other Babies and Children were dumped into similar unmarked graves. It is now a fact, that Survivors had known for years that thousands of Babies and Children had disappeared within the Religious run, Orphanages, Mother and Baby Homes and the Industrial Schools in Ireland.
In Tuam's, Mother and Baby Home in County Galway, Ireland, many of the Babies and Children appeared to be bound and tied at the ankles and hands and tightly wrapped in cloth or newspapers, some of the bound Babies and Children were mutilated. Some local people who happened to witness the discovery and knew of the bodies of the Babies and Children in the septic tank and the underground bunkers, now claim that the bodies of the Babies and Children were stacked like dusty wine bottles in multiple rows from floor to ceilings in 17 of the 20 bunkers. Some of local witnesses say the bodies of the Babies and Children had the appearance of marks of violence, some bludgeoned to death and some bore signs of both malnutrition and mutilation on them. The septic tank and the underground bunkers in the Mother and Baby Home in the town of Tuam, in County Galway, were the secret disposal site for unwanted Babies and Children.
The caring Sisters of Bon Secours, who ran the Mother and Baby Home had strongly denied any involvement in the deaths of the Babies and Children. The heartless Bon Secours Nuns had interred the Babies and Children’s bodies without prior notice, in secret and without informing State Officials who would never have ordered autopsies, or asked probing questions, after all the Nuns, the caring Sisters of Bon Secours, good word was sacrosanct, made holy by the fearful locals. But as is now known the Religious Orders had complete autonomy in all matters with the running of the Orphanages, Mother and Baby Homes and the Industrial Schools in Ireland. Worse still, the sacrosanct Nuns destroyed the birth records where they could, preventing the collecting of crucial evidence which would have helped in identifying the Babies and Children. The ongoing official investigation by the Irish Government is a charade, as long as the powerful Irish Catholic Church denies all their documentations and does all in it’s considerable power to destroy all the known written records that incriminate them. Saying sorry does not work any more, especially in the collective murder of Babies and Children in Irish Orphanages or any other Religious Institutions in which they feel, they, the powerful Irish Catholic Church have immunity in how they ran the Orphanages, Mother and Baby Homes, and Industrial Schools in Ireland. The damnatory evidence uncovered by Irish forensic archaeological investigation into the Mother and Baby Home, run by the Nuns, the Sisters of Bon Secours in the town of Tuam, in County Galway, Ireland is incriminating.
This forensic archaeological compromising evidence of hundreds of Babies and Children flushed into a septic tank must be investigated immediately by the Irish Police, as a shocking mass crime against Humanity, the murder and criminal disposable of hundreds of Babies and Children. The Garda, the Irish Police needs to do its job in conjunction with the Irish Court system.
Let’s get this straight, the powerful Irish Catholic Church does not have nor should have immunity in the collective murder and disposable of Babies and Children in any of their Orphanages, Mother and Baby Homes, and Industrial Schools in Ireland that they controlled and ran.
Tuam, Mother and Baby Home in County Galway, Ireland should and must be a crime scene and all its actors should be held accountable, age or time gone, should not be a consideration in not to investigate. The Irish Police, the Garda, needs to do its job immediately free from political interferences and the ongoing Irish Catholic Church intimidation. The investigation should be open and above board, no matter how painful for all concerned, nobody in Ireland, especially the Catholic Church Clerics, high or low officials should be above secular law, the secular Law of the land of Ireland. If the Irish State or Irish Police, An Garda Síochána, feel they cannot do their job than the United Nations should step in Immediately. We are only talking about one Mother and Baby Home in Tuam, County Galway, at the moment. What happens when the Commission “MOTHER AND BABY HOMES COMMISSION OF INVESTIGATION” finds thousands of more Babies and Children dumped in other mass graves in each of the other Mother and Baby Homes in other parts of Ireland, we officially have 17 more Religious Institutions to discover and possible as much as 200 other Religious run Institutions, God help us.
