Dozens of wellwishers, families and friends were present to hear Philomena Lee and her daughter Jane speaking at the remembrance event for the mothers and babies of Sean Ross Abbey. The event is held every year and was organised by Mary Lawlor. Susan Lohan hosted proceedings, while Darragh McGann was the lead singer and Fintan Dunne read a poem. Atheist Ireland supports the work of the mother and babies advocacy groups, and helped sponsor the balloons for this event. More photos can be found at Sean Ross Abbey Facebook page.
