Abstract

This Report addresses the institutionalisation of unmarried mothers and their children in Ireland from 1922-1998.2 It focuses on 18 institutions. These represent just a fraction of the ‘homes’ found in twentieth century Ireland. In turn, they were just one part of a wider system of family separation. As well as formal and informal adoption, transnational adoption, fostering and boarding out, this system included later institutionalisation in industrial schools, Magdalen laundries and other abusive
residential institutions.
