Mike Milotte’s damning exposé of Church-State collusion in banishing thousands of vulnerable ‘illegitimate’ children from Ireland in the 1950s and 60s was first published to critical acclaim in 1997, and quickly achieved iconic status. NEW UPDATE EDITION

Mike Milotte's damning exposé of Church-State collusion in banishing thousands of vulnerable 'illegitimate' children from Ireland in the 1950s and 60s was first published to critical acclaim in 1997, and quickly achieved iconic status.

For this updated and expanded edition the author has added previously untold personal stories from some of the 'banished babies' he met in the intervening period, stories that further illuminate the murky shadows of this official, but long-concealed child-export business.

This updated and expanded edition also examines the Irish State's failure to fulfil promises - made in the wake of the book's first appearance - to adequately facilitate search and reunion among the 'banished babies' and their natural parents.
