Press Releases / Archbishop of Dublin meets with former Bethany Home residents


Following on from comments made by the Archbishop of Dublin on the c of i logoday of his election, the Most Revd Dr Michael Jackson has met with Derek Leinster, Niall Meehan and a number of former residents of the Bethany Home.

The meeting provided an opportunity for the former residents to share their stories with Archbishop Jackson, in a meeting that was very much person to person and pastoral in character.

Archbishop Jackson stated that he was open to supporting the former residents in their quest to erect a memorial in Mount Jerome Cemetery for children who died in the Bethany Home and were buried there in unmarked graves. He also informed those present that he recently sent a letter to Ruairi Quinn, TD, encouraging the Minister for Education to re-examine as a matter of urgency the former residents' appeal to have the Bethany Home included in the State redress scheme.
