A commission set up to investigate alleged abuse at religious-run so-called mother and baby homes has been carrying out an excavation at the former Catholic Church institution in Tuam, Co Galway.
It said it was “shocked” by the discovery of “significant quantities of human remains” in at least 17 of 20 underground chambers being excavated in recent weeks.
“A small number of remains were recovered for the purpose of analysis,” the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes said.
“These remains involved a number of individuals with age-at-death ranges from approximately 35 foetal weeks to 2-3 years.
“Radiocarbon dating of the samples recovered suggest that the remains date from the time frame relevant to the operation of the mother and baby home.”
The Tuam home operated from 1925 to 1961.
