Tuam Spirit Babies - Patsy McNamara

By Patsy McNamara

Patsy's piece for the Tuam Spirit Babies exhibition packs a punch and there's very little need for explanation. Great art communicates right to the gut. Thank you Patsy for your contribution.

Mega thanks to Patsy also for taking the time and effort to spread the word and ask people for money (a very difficult task in my mind.) What a SUPERSTAR!!!
It’s so appreciated. Thank you Patsy.

A huge THANKYOU to everyone who contributed to the collection for the candles at Medtronic, your input is greatly appreciated and a sticker with your name on it will go on the underside (unfortunately I cut up all the sheets with the names on them before I thought to scan them.) Each candle represents someone who died at the ‘Home’ but will also connect you to the person who lights or eventually carries it. Each candle could therefore, have at least four people connected to it. Beautiful!
Families are especially welcome to the Candlelight Vigil on Wednesday 2nd November at 7pm. It's vitally important that children are present. There'll be a procession to the Town Hall where there'll be a few speeches and then refreshments will be served at the Corralea Hotel opposite. All welcome. 

The premiere of the film ‘Children of Shame’ will also be shown in the Town Hall after the speeches @8.30 pm approx. for adults who wish to stay on and view it. Many thanks.  

Tons of boxes filling the studio floor but as it says on the side - Comfort. That's a lovely sentiment and hopefully people will receive a little comfort from each candle as they carry it. #Tuamspiritbabies
