Wicklow singer-songwriter Brian Barron has tackled the toughest of subjects in his new song Tuam Baby Massacre. We are not sure if this is the first song on the terrible occurrences in Galway, and although it’s a harrowing subject we certainly hope it is not the last.

For, whatever you think of Barron’s composition, it is a song and a tale which simply has to be told and repeated until justice prevails. Historian Catherine Corless, who broke the Tuam story, has given her seal of approval to the song calling it “beautiful and most appropriate”.
