Galway TDs must vote against sealing Mother and Baby Homes records for 30 years

Tue, Oct 20, 2020

Sinn Féin Galway East representative Louis O'Hara.

Galway East TDs must vote against the controversial Mother and Baby Homes Bill which comes before the Dáil this week, as it would seal the records relating to such homes for up to 30 years.

This is the view of Sinn Féin Galway East representative, Louis O'Hara, who secured 16.7 per cent of first preference votes at the February General Election, and who lasted until the eighth and final count.

The Commission of Investigation (Mother and Baby Homes and Certain Related Matters) Records Bill 2020 was passed last week in the Seanad by 23 votes to 13, despite misgivings from some Seantors that the process was rushed.
