I was born at Quarry Maternity home on 6th March 1956, very happily adopted but now just a little curious.

Thanks Eilleen!

I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone who was there in 1968 or around that time.
How many girls were there and what was it like? I love the story about sunbathing on the roof! - although I understand that was a brief interlude of fun in what was otherwise very tough times.
Many thanks, Natalie
