Behind all the hyperbole, the rhetoric, and sensationalist reporting on Tuam; behind even Taoiseach Enda Kenny's own "chamber of horrors" language, lies a bigger story. Not just of Tuam, but of mother and baby homes, county homes and other institutions across Ireland. Surely you know the tale.

It's not the story of where thousands of children were buried. Of course, that should all be investigated and we hope the resolution is forthcoming for the families concerned.
