Institutional Burials Bill

Whitaker Institute member Professor Ray Murphy, of the Conflict, Humanitarianism and Security cluster, was among more than twenty speakers addressing the Oireachtas committee on children and equality this week. The committee is scrutinising a Bill to legislate for the examination and possible exhumation of mass graves at mother and baby homes, such as at Tuam in County Galway and Bessborough in County Cork.
