First Thought Talk with Catherine Corless

Catherine Corless came to the public's attention for her painstaking research into the staggering number of infant deaths in the Tuam and Bessborough Mother and Baby Homes.

This research ultimately led to the establishment of the Mother and Baby Homes Commission of Investigation, the work of which is ongoing.

Here, Corless is in conversation with Catriona Crowe on her work and what work remains to be done. Diarmaid Ferriter provides a historical context.
