Report On Midlands Mother And Baby Homes Delayed

It's due to be presented to Children's Minister Katherine Zappone in February.

The length of a report into Mother and Baby Homes including two in the Midlands could cause another delay in its publication. 

The document will share findings on Manor House in Castlepollard and Sean Ross Abbey in Roscrea as well as 16 other locations and is due to be presented to the Government on February the 18th. 

It's been inquiring into the treatment of Women and Children at the sites between 1922 and 1998. 

The report was commissioned by then Taoiseach Enda Kenny back in 2015 and has already been granted two extensions.
