Tuam Spirit Babies - Penny Jones Yoga

Penny Jones Yoga

Here's what the Mother and Baby yoga  group Penny Jones Yoga produced for our 'Tuam Spirit Babies' exhibition. Gorgeous.

And this is what was conveyed when I chatted to Penny afterwards.

The 'Home Babies' didn't get a chance to do all the usual things children do at home; like listening to their favourite music or enjoy a family christmas or even just arts and crafts with their own mothers. The image on the bottom right is a small baby handprint but surrounding it, is the announcements in the newspapers for births, deaths and marriages which they were also denied. 

It's astounding how many different perspectives are coming from this subject.

MairĂ©ad McKeon also dropped by at the same time as Penny last week and she delivered a tiny hand crafted bonnet which is on the second row in the photo above. Beautiful. MairĂ©rad is part of the Yarn-bombing movement in Headford :-)

Thank you to everyone for taking the time and effort to contribute. It's greatly appreciated.
