Senior RTE current affairs reporter Mike Milotte, who began to unravel the story in a TV documentary last year, has now gained access to hundreds of confidential files for Banished Babies. Blending personal stories into his account, Milotte reveals how the state colluded with Church agencies to facilitate the export of 'illegitimate' children, and how a black market existed in which Irish babies changed hands beyond the fringes of the official 'export scheme'. In this hard-hitting book, Mike Milotte explains in vivid detail how thousands of babies came to be exiled.
