"  The government of Ireland has launched an investigation into abuse and the deaths of nearly 800 infants from unmarried mothers decades ago at "mother and baby" homes run by the Roman Catholic Church, uncovering what has been called a "dark history" of how such children where treated. "

Anti-Catholic hysteria. This story's been explained. Those babies died over many years (1925 to 1962); the rate was about the same as infant mortality in the rest of Ireland at the time.

It could be anti-Catholic hysteria, and in case it is, then good luck to them trying to attack and destroy a 2000 years old Church that was established by the Creator Himself.  ;)

Right, good luck. The thing is Jesus' promise to remain here through the church applies to the world but not any one part of it, so the church in Ireland could go away like the one in Asia Minor has.
