Former residents of Nazareth House Children’s Home in Derry will next week start giving evidence to a public inquiry probing allegations of abuse at kids’ care homes.

The Historical Abuse Inquiry, sitting in Banbridge, Co. Down, is investigating abuse claims against children’s residential institutions across the North between 1922 and 1995.

Among the homes under the spotlight are St Joseph’s Boys’ Home, Termonbacca, and Nazareth House Children’s Home, Bishop Street - both runs by the Sisters of Nazareth.

Hearings of the inquiry are to resume on Monday with the first oral testimony from former residents of the Bishop Street kids’ home.

In all, ten witnesses are due to take to the witness stand next week.
