Gardai are appealing to anyone who wants to report a crime relating to their stay at a Mother and Baby home, to contact them.
The appeal comes after a dedicated Garda team reviewed the report of the Mother and Baby Homes Commission.
It was their aim to determine whether the information could form the basis for criminal investigations.
After careful consideration, Gardai are of the view that there is insufficient detail to launch any criminal investigations because individuals aren't identified.
As a result, Gardai are now appealing to anyone who wishes to report a crime relating to pregnancy or abuse involving their stay at a Mother and Baby Home to contact them so that crimes can be investigated where possible.
People can report a crime by emailing MotherandBabyHomes@garda.ie by phoning 1800 555 222. or by calling to a local Garda station.
Anyone who reports a crime will receive personal contact within 48 hours.
Gardai say they will deal with any matters reported in a sensitive manner and will, where possible, progress matters through investigation.
