30/10/2017 - Catherine Corless once again is to receive an award for investigative research for her work which led to the discovery of the remains of hundreds of babies at the site of the Tuam mother and baby home.

Catherine will be presented with the one-off award at the NewsBrands Irish Journalism Awards this Thursday in the Mansion House for her investigation into the former institution for unmarried mothers run by the Sisters of Bon Secours.

NewsBrands Ireland chairman Vincent Crowley said: "Without her work, the press would not have been able to tell the story and it would have remained hidden with the hundreds of innocent souls, away from public sight.

Tuam Home Survivors would like to extend a very sincere congratulations to Catherine on receiving this award.
