"Shocking, disturbing and repulsive" - some of the words used by Galway West TD Catherine Connolly yesterday evening, when speaking in the Dáil about the report from the Commission for Investigation into Mother & Baby Homes.

The Independent TD addressed the Dail yesterday evening, following the Taoiseach's apology to the survivors of the homes.

Deputy Connolly- the leas-Ceann Comhairle in the Dáil - described the 3,000 page report published this week as "disturbing and poorly written" and said she found the narrative repulsive.

The Galway West TD questioned the report's findings that there was no evidence of women being forced into the homes by the Church or State, when she says "the testimonies of survivors jumped off the page".
