Ireland to Investigate Mass Grave

Speaking during a visit to the U.S. on Wednesday, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said there will be an inquiry into the death of hundreds of infants and children at a Catholic Church-run mother-and-baby home in Tuam. He also said the inquiry will be widened to similar institutions: “The revelations in Tuam have brought to the fore the situation in other mother-and-baby homes throughout the country.” The government also is not ruling out a criminal investigation. “These revelations are a reminder of our darker past where children were far from cherished," Kenny said.
