The Commission of Investigation report into mother and baby homes is set to reveal 9,000 children died in the institutions investigated.
The Sunday Independent says the report, due to be presented to Cabinet on Tuesday, found 56,000 women were sent to the 18 institutions between 1922 and 1998.
57,000 babies were born there but 1 in 7 didn't survive.
Speaking to the paper, the Taoiseach says he'll make a full State apology to the survivors in the Dail on Wednesday.
Micheal Martin says he found the report "shocking and difficult to read".
