Catherine Corless said ( about Galway County Council ) : “The Bon Secours sisters were paid by the State per head for each mother and child from Galway and Mayo. The Council provided capitation grants for roofing and maintenance. They had this group of women to do the work. When the mother went into the home, she had to stay there for a year to look after the child and to pay her expenses for her confinement for having the baby unless her family could pay £100 fee, which didn’t happen normally in the 1940’s. They had a huge employment force to do the work in the home with the result that nobody else was employed from outside the home. Very few people got inside the eight-foot-high walls on the seven acres. The nuns had complete power and control” External link

Catherine Corless said ( about Galway County Council ) : “The Bon Secours sisters were paid by the State per head for each mother and child from Galway and Mayo. The Council provided capitation grants for roofing and maintenance. They had this group of women to do the work. When the mother went into the home, she had to stay there for a year to look after the child and to pay her expenses for her confinement for having the baby unless her family could pay £100 fee, which didn’t happen normally in the 1940’s. They had a huge employment force to do the work in the home with the result that nobody else was employed from outside the home. Very few people got inside the eight-foot-high walls on the seven acres. The nuns had complete power and control” External link
