Statement from The Most Revd Dr Michael Jackson, Archbishop of Dublin, on Terms of Reference for Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes

United Diocese of Dublin & Glendalough

‘I welcome today’s announcement of the Terms of Reference for an investigation into mother and baby homes and a range of related matters to be chaired by Ms Justice Yvonne Murphy. I note that three Protestant homes will be considered, one of which is Bethany Home. Bethany Home has been a matter of significant concern to a number of former residents, the Bethany Survivors Group, with whom I have met on several occasions. As I have said previously I have been conscious of the strength of their feeling that the State has not examined the Home in a similar way to other institutions, until now. For this reason, among others I welcome today’s news. The plight of those who have suffered and still suffer remains a pastoral concern to me.’
