Mayo county council is to hold a special meeting to discuss the Commission Report into Mother and Baby Homes.

Mayo County Council is referred to a number of times in the 3,000 page document.

Independent councillor Christy Hyland proposed the special meeting, at yesterday’s monthly meeting of Mayo County Council.

Councillor Michael Kilcoyne seconded the proposal and asked that any records or archival material related to the council’s involvement with the institutions be made available.

Chief executive Peter Duggan said it was a very sensitive report and members should be given time to read it in detail.

It was agreed that the special meeting will take place on the 1st of February.

Cllr Hyland spoke to Midwest News today.
