Is staraí amaitéarach Éireannach í Catherine Corless (née Farrell), atá gairthe as a cuid oibre i dtiomsú na faisnéise a bhaineann leis na básanna de leanaí ag an 'Bon Secours Mother and Baby Home' i Thuama, Gaillimh. Chaith sí seachtain le linn a laethanta saoire ó bheith ag obair ar an fheirm teaghlaigh ag cuardach taifid i leabharlanna, séipéil agus oifigí na comhairle, tar éis a bhfuair sí amach go bhfuair 796 leanaí bás sa bhaile. D'aithin sí go raibh teastais báis ach ní raibh aon taifead adhlactha acu. [1][2][3]
