The Leap of Faith Friday 7 December 2018

The Leap of Faith

On the Leap of Faith this week, Michael Comyn’s guest is Galway Historian Catherine Corless. This Friday, December 7th she will be awarded an honorary degree at Trinity College Dublin in recognition of her work.

Spending her spare time searching records in libraries, churches and council offices, she uncovered that 796 children died in the Tuam Mother and Baby Home. She talks about how this research has affected her own faith and, her hopes for the future, for the families involved.
