Motion: Bon Secours Sisters' Institution in Tuam

Proposed:

That this Assembly acknowledges the scandal that occurred at the Bon Secours Sisters' institution in Tuam, Co Galway, where almost 800 children died whilst in the care of a religious order and were placed in a mass unmarked grave over a period of five decades; notes the intention of the Dublin government to take steps to establish the best course of action to investigate the deaths of these children and the appalling manner of their interment; recognises that the abusive practices which occurred at the Bon Secours Sisters' mother and baby care home were not unique and were replicated in similar institutions across the island of Ireland; and calls for all government departments and their agencies, as well as religious orders, to proactively co-operate with any investigation that takes place to establish the truth behind this scandal.
