The Taoiseach has apologised on behalf of the State to former residents of mother and baby homes for the way they were treated over several decades.  In a statement in the Dáil on Wednesday, Micheál Martin said the report highlighted a “profound failure” of empathy, understanding and compassion over a long period.  For reaction to the apology yesterday we were joined on the show by Catherine Corless, Campaigner and historian.
