My mothers first place of incarceration,
Lenaboy, Galway. School inspector describes the girls as ‘cowed, dirty, emaciated and frightened’ Girls are starving and two thirds have scabies, girls have bruises. Second place of incarceration. Tuam M&B Home.

Following a rape. Her baby dies at six months while my mother was held in a third place of incarceration. St Bridget’s in Loughrea. My mother thrown out the day her baby died. My mother was eighteen years old. My mothers child lies in a septic tank.

Can I ask that if you are coming to the vigil in Tuam on 26th of August, will you bring a pair of baby shoes, nothing fancy, to represent the children who never got the chance to wear shoes. 

These are for my sister Mary Margaret, dead at 6 months.
