    In 1975, two children hiding after being caught robbing apples found a slab of concrete with a crack in it in a Co Galway town. They looked underneath and saw what appeared to be piles of tiny bones. Decades later, their accidental discovery led to a mass grave being uncovered on the grounds of a former mother and baby home in Tuam. But what happens now to the remains they found?
