A UN committee's called for independent investigations into Ireland's Mother and Baby Homes and Magdalene Laundries.
It says victims should get compensation and official apologies, while it's also criticised our strict abortion laws.
There are calls for the sites of two former Magdalene laundries in Dublin to be examined for children's graves, following Friday's shocking confirmation that hundreds of babies' and childrens' remains had been discovered in a Tuam home run by the Bon Secours nuns.
'Significant quantities' were discovered in a septic tank. Records show that almost 800 deaths were recorded at the home over almost 40 years.
The Mother and Baby Homes Commission of Investigation is examining 18 institutions, seven of which are in Dublin.
They include former sites at St Patrick's on the Navan Road and Bethany Home which was originally at Blackhall Place until it moved to Orwell Road in Rathgar.
There's mounting pressure from survivors groups to excavate those sites.
There are also calls for the planned redevelopment of the Magdalene laundry in Donnybrook and any potential redevelopment of the laundry off Sean McDermott St. not to take place until the sites are fully examined for graves.
The address was made by survivors at a ceremony at Glasnevin Cemetery.
