In 1946, twenty-six-year-old Bridget Dolan walked up the path to the front door of the Tuam Mother and Baby Home. Alone and pregnant, she was following in the footsteps of more than a century’s worth of lost souls. Shunned by society for her sins and offered no comfort for her pain, Bridget gave birth to a boy, John, who died at the home in a horrendous state of neglect less than two years later. Her second child was once again delivered into the care of the nuns and was taken from her, never to be seen or heard from again. She would go on to marry a wonderful man and have a daughter, Anna Corrigan, but it was only after Bridget’s death that Anna discovered she had two brothers her mother had never spoken about. In the aftermath of the explosive revelations that the remains of 796 babies had been found in a septic tank on the site of the Tuam Mother and Baby Home, she became compelled to try and find out if her baby brothers’ remains were among them. Here, Anna and Alison O’Reilly piece together the erased chapter of the life of Bridget Dolan and her forgotten sons, reminding us that we must never forget what was done to the women and children of the Tuam Mother and Baby Home.

Bridget Flynn – A Female Detective Bridget Flynn Detective Series Book 1 "Whatever women do, they must do two times as well as men to be half as good. Fortunately, this is not difficult." Bridget Flynn said when interviewed by the Eagle Lake Headlight. After nine novels demonstrating the career of the heroic and famed detective Vincent Gideon, the time came for his passing the torch to Bridget Flynn. Times have changed, and the female detective found it was time to burst into the mystery scene, and she does it with wit and flair, paving the way for other women sleuths. Fans around the world adored the woman detective, Bridget Flynn, in her debut as a side-kick with Vincent Gideon in the novel, Rosenthall, Book 1 in the Gideon Detective Series. She used her undercover name of Agatha throughout the case. In this romance whodunit series, the lady detective, with the help of Chief Tommy Jackson of the Black Rock Cove police department, navigates her cases and sex life with good humor. Intelligence and an occasional longleaf Cuban cigar describe this attractive redhead detective. This first novel in Sidney St. James widely acclaimed Detective Series tells story after story of our delightful, cunning and brilliant woman sleuth, Bridget Flynn. Watch as James makes the world a battlefield for this female investigator… from petty insults to opening her own door. Drop this woman into a man's world and watch the sparks fly. Immediately upon setting up shop and hanging her shingle in a small office in Black Rock Cove, Flynn is hired to follow the Countess from Norderney Island after her husband, Count William died mysteriously. (Read about the beautiful countess in Book 7 of the Love Lost Series, NORDERNEY ISLAND) After solving the case, she's invited to take on two high profile cases, one to break up a secret society, the Knights of the Silver Circle and the other, the robbing of valuables and cash from the U. S. Postal System. What really rattled her cage, more so than investigating robberies, murder and cold cases like Rosenthall, is the lack of credit given to her by all the newspapers in the country. When interviewed by a journalist who knew Bridget was getting a bad shake, she said, "Whatever women do they must do two times as well as men to be half as good. Fortunately, this is not difficult." Author James has found the opportunity to allow his female main characters the time to break the rules! For example, with a stroke of James' keyboard in the Rose of Brays Bayou, the award-winning author brings to life in creative nonfiction the story of the Runaway Scrape starring Dilue Rose Harris. God Bless Texas Women.
