Clann: Ireland’s Unmarried Mothers and their Children: Gathering the Data (‘Clann’) is a joint initiative by Adoption Rights Alliance (ARA), JFM Research (JFMR) and global law firm, Hogan Lovells. The purpose of Clann is to help establish the truth of what happened to unmarried mothers and their children in 20th century Ireland.

  • As part of this process, Clann anonymised shared statements, and gathered documentary and archival materials, in order to make a public group report to (1) the Commission of Investigation, (2) the Irish Government, and (3) international human rights bodies.
  • Clann will also disseminate archival and contemporary documentary materials via this website.
