Ireland's Children's Minister Charlie Flanagan said the claims of a mass grave at a home for unmarried mothers in Galway are almost almost too graphic and horrible to believe.
It is fully recognised by me and my Government colleagues that we need to establish the truth.
...The Government is committed to ensuring that the most appropriate action is taken to ensure that the concerns in regards to these deeply tragic and disturbing past events can be addressed.
A Government review will also investigate other mother and baby homes and includes officials in departments of children, justice, health, education and environment.
