A mass grave of children was found In Ireland on the territory of the former orphanage

Most of the burials were made in the 1950s, underground structures were found, divided into 20 chambers.

In Ireland, in the territory of the former orphanage and unwedded mothers in Taum, a mass grave was found with the remains of infants and young children.

The bulk of the burials was made in the 1950s. The shelter, which was closed in 1961, was occupied by nuns of the Catholic religious order Bon Sekur.

It is noted that an unnamed grave confirms the statements of a local historian who is trying to trace the fate of more than 800 dead children.

Underground structures were found, divided into 20 cells with a large number of human remains, but their exact number is not announced.

According to DNA analysis, the age of the deceased ranges from 35 weeks to three years.

The Dublin`s info site informs that the burial of children in mass graves was a fairly common practice in Catholic homes due to high infant mortality at that time.
