Bon Secours were the order who ran the Home for Mother and Child in Tuam and now they run very profitable private hospitals across the country.
The site of over 700 remains of babies were found and where a massive human trafficking racket was in full swing earning up to £2,000 in 1950s money for every child sold on for adoption...
£2000 in 1950 was worth about €75847.40 in 2015
