Egregious breaches of human rights in Ireland
Anna Corrigan is P.R. for the Tuam Babies Family Group. Her Mother was Bridget Dolan, a former inmate of Tuam Mother and Baby Home. Bridget gave birth to two boys there John and William who are the subject of two Police inquires since 2013/2014 around what happened to them.
Anna brought the story of her Mother and her brothers and the work of Catherine Corless to the attention of the journalist, Alison O’Reilly which resulted in the setting up of a Commission of Investigation into the Mother and baby Homes. A book followed called ‘My Name is Bridget’.
She is an advocate for human rights for those affected and received a Gold medal from Trinity College Philosophical Society for her work around human rights and public discourse on issues surrounding this Home.
