Leanna Byrne - BBC News

This article from BBC News shines a light on the stories of some of the people who suffered abuse and mistreatment as children in Ireland's Catholic institutions and "industrial schools." These schools "were established to care for neglected, orphaned and abandoned children, according to laws at the time," says the article. The article describes the history and use of industrial schools and mother and baby homes in Ireland, sharing the stories of two individuals, William and Mary, who grew up in such institutions.
