Second gate into the children's burial ground Tuam

Almost every photo taken of the memorial garden where some children from the Tuam Children’s Home are buried show a gate with a Christian cross marking the site our as a cemetery. A second gate bears a cross also and in the corner is a Catholic Marian shrine. These were in place long before the scandal broke in 2014 and probably date to the 1970s when the home was knocked and a housing estate built in its place. It was not an unmarked grave site.
