Debunking the Canards of History

Ireland has been in the grip of major historical scandals which are mostly based on a false interpretation of history. The mother and baby homes scandal which really took flight in the world’s media in 2014 is peppered with lurid headlines and claims of murder and abuse. Nothing could be further from the truth but that has no stopped Irish politicians from jumping on the bandwagon adding one spurious claim on top of another. More over a tiny few academic historians have also chased and jumped on the bandwagon, which warrants an investigation into why the quality controls have become dysfunctional in the Irish university system.
