Investigating the Tuam Mothers and Babies Home - A question of Human Rights

In June of this year widespread media attention focused on the research by Tuam local historian Catherine Corless to the effect that 796 children died at the Tuam Mothers and Babies Home between 1925 and its closure in 1963.  On 16 July 2014, the Irish Government appointed Judge Yvonne Murphy to chair the Commission of Investigation into mother-and-baby homes. In October 2014, the Minister for Children, James Reilly, announced that the draft terms of reference for the inquiry had been circulated to government departments for comment. In September 2014, Solicitor Kevin Higgins, called for the Attorney General to order inquests into the deaths of the children buried at the former Home.



On Monday 10 November, the Irish Centre for Human Rights will convene a public seminar, “Investigating the Tuam Mothers and Babies Home:  A Question of Human Rights”. Speakers will include Catherine Corless (keynote speaker), Kevin Higgins, Professor Michael O’Flaherty of the Irish Centre for Human Rights and Tanya Ward, Children’s Rights Alliance. The event will be chaired by Mark Kelly, Irish Council for Civil Liberties.

Startup Weekend

Running from 14-16 November, teams of entrepreneurs and innovators will gather together to develop their ideas from an initial 60 second pitch to a scalable company. 54 hours of activity will culminate in a round of presentations to the assembled judges, mentors, and other teams, leaving attendees with valuable feedback on their ideas, new skills, great contacts, and hopefully, a viable startup business. With 36% of Startup Weekend startups not only continuing after the weekend, but through the three month mark, taking part is a great initial step for anyone wondering what it takes to launch a startup.


The organisational team includes: Dr John Breslin, senior lecturer in NUI Galway and cofounder of Boards.ie; Michael Campion of NUI Galway’s Cairnes school of Business and Economics; Michael FitzGerald, founder and CEO of sales management software company OnePage CRM; Paul Killoran, founder and CEO of research publishing software company Exordo; and Tara Dalrymple, founder and CEO of lifestyle management and outsourcing businesses, Busy Lizzie and Mission Possible. Between them, they represent the wealth of startup knowledge that exists in the Galway business community, as well as a significant skill set ranging from finance and marketing to programming and design.


As well as encouraging people to attend and take part, the organisers are currently seeking volunteers to help both at the event and in the run up to it. Anyone interested in lending a hand (particularly photographers or video bloggers) should send an email to galway@startupweekend.org
