Ireland will face another profound reckoning on its shameful past this week when the final report of the Mother and Baby Homes Commission of Investigation is published.

The commission was established by the government in 2015 in the wake of claims that the bodies of up to 800 babies and children may have been interred in an unmarked mass grave in the Bon Secours Mother and Baby Home, located in Tuam, Co Galway.
