Hi.  Re the comment about the 3 Dublin homes working together to hide information.  I have found out that my late mother was in a home ran by a Nurse Ada Collins at 67 St Stephens Green, Dublin.  The Irish Adoption Agency tell me that Nurse Collins was notorious for hiding information and they have great difficulty in tracing information regarding 'Nurse Collins babies'.  I wonder if Nurse Ada Collins could be connected to the other homes you mention in your post.

When I contacted then they said none had been handed over. Do you know if they have them for 1950? And do you know of a specific person to contact?

For anyone who might have an interest:

The Irish minister for children was on radio saying they have just discovered at least 126 children had false birth registrations from st Patrick's guild in the 1940 - 60's and the police have been contacted and it will be investigated.

They think there may be more institutions that did the same thing

Looking for my birth record in Sorrento Nursing Home, 7 Cabra Park where I was born on January 7th, 1962. Has anyone received any record from this nursing home which was run by Nurse Norah Hickey?
