Tuam historian Catherine Corless is to receive an honorary degree from NUI Galway next month.

In 2014, Ms Corless revealed that hundreds of babies and toddlers had been buried in unmarked graves at a former mother and baby home in Tuam.

She's also known for her advocacy work on behalf of the survivors, and the children who lost their lives.

Others to receive an honorary degree include musician Sharon Shannon and dementia activist, Helen Rochford Brennan.
