In the summer of 2014, and later again in spring 2017, a scandal arose in relation to the Tuam Children's Home in Galway in Ireland. It was alleged that the nuns who looked after children there from 1925-61 had maltreated them. This third edition book casts a critical eye on the local history methodology underpinning the scandal. It examines in detail: the mapping of the burial sites; the statistical traps overlooked; the widely misinterpreted 2017 statement of the Mother and Baby Commission; the Oral History of the Home; and the vexed questions of money and food. Extensive appendices also expand on the recorded history of the Home, the personnel employed there, three detailed eyewitness accounts, a comprehensive history of the Tuam workhouse, and a detailed analysis of the 2019 government report on the Home. It also contains a valuable foreword by Fr Paul Churchill.
