Children at Derry care homes run by the Sisters of Nazareth were made to eat their own vomit and were beaten for wetting the bed, a public inquiry has been told.

The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry is investigating abuse claims against children’s residential institutions across the North from 1922 to 1995.

Among the institutions under the microscope are Nazareth House Children’s Home, Bishop Street, and St Joseph’s Home, Termonbacca, both in Derry, which were run by the Sisters of Nazareth.
