A LANTERN will be carried some 50km from Mayo to the Tuam Mother and Baby Home site next Sunday (November 8).

People across Mayo and North Galway will help carry and pass on the light in a relay from from Islandeady to Tuam. The event has been organised as a way to remember the babies and mothers of the Tuam home.
