The scathing criticism of the Sisters of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary is contained in the Commission’s long-awaited fifth interim report into burial arrangements at Ireland’s main mother and baby homes. The report confirms that some 900 children died in Bessborough or in hospital after being transferred from Bessborough. These children died between 1922 and 1928. Richard MillsThe Commission found it “surprising that she does not remember any deaths” considering that 31 children died there between 1950 and 1960 alone. Five of the remaining children died after being transferred to Cork District Hospital and are “likely” to have been buried at Cork District Cemetery, Carr’s Hill.
