Gene Kerrigan: They knew about the babies for 90 years
This is not about cruel nuns, it's about collusion between institutions that has corrupted this country, writes Gene Kerrigan
The evidence is there, beyond any doubt: they knew from August 1927 that the babies were dying at a terrible rate. And they were cool with that.
Not just the nuns - it would be so much easier if Tuam and all the rest of it was merely a tale of cruel nuns. It was wider than that.
It wasn't in the 1960s or the 1990s they had their eyes opened. They knew from 1927.
