Sean Donegan keeps the search alive for ‘The Missing Children’
‘The Missing Children’ is a documentary about one of the darkest and most shameful episodes in Ireland’s history.
It’s the story of the Tuam mother-and-baby home and much of the tragedy is that the horrific discovery of a hidden burial site in a septic tank on the grounds of the home over seven years ago has still not been properly investigated.
The bodies are yet to be exhumed.
Sean Donegan’s work features heavily in the documentary. The Newry man's photographs and videos often depict derelict buildings dotted around the Irish landscape and some of his most powerful images are of mother-and-baby homes in Castlepollard, Tuam and Marianvale on the Armagh Road (main image).
