Protest at Bons Secours hospital Renmore over Tuam babies scandal

Galway Bay fm newsroom – Approximately 40 people have gathered at the entrance to the Bon Secours Hospital in Renmore this evening in protest over the Tuam babies’ scandal.

The white ribbon protest is being organised by People Before Profit Galway, which claims that the institutional structure which involved the Bons Secours order, state agencies and the Catholic Church is to blame.

The event comes one week to the day that the Commission of Investigation confirmed the discovery of a significant number of babies and childrens’ remains at the Athenry road site in Tuam.

PBP Galway is outlining a number of demands including the creation of a memorial to the victims, and that the Bons Secours group re-consider the existence of their order.
