Event description
Caelainn Hogan's new book, 'Republic of Shame' examines Ireland’s mother-and-baby homes and the collusion of Church and State

About this Event

The treatment of unwed mothers has long been a stain on the history of Ireland. Here to shed some new light on the unanswered questions many still have is journalist Caelainn Hogan. Her new book, Republic of Shame (Penguin) examines Ireland’s mother-and-baby homes and the collusion of the Catholic Church with the Irish State to keep these women incarcerated and condemned for the ‘crime’ of having a baby out of wedlock. The book features first person accounts from survivors, nuns, priests, midwives, and members of the public who all have their own story to tell. Join us for an eye-opening event as the author shares her experiences in uncovering all sides of this tragic piece of Irish history with Katie Hannon, presenter of RTÉ Radio 1's Late Debate and author of The Naked Politician (Gill Books).
