Description   A view of the interior of Tralee Courthouse, County Kerry, in January 1985. The Kerry Babies Tribunal opened in this courtroom on 7 January 1985. This shot was taken from the main body of the (empty) courtroom and shows the judge's bench with the Irish government harp above it.

The Kerry Babies Tribunal was established to enquire into the events surrounding Joanne Hayes's confession to the murder of a baby found on Cahirciveen beach. A second dead baby was subsequently found on the Hayes family farm in Abbeydorney, County Kerry and eventually all charges against Joanne Hayes and her family were dropped. The tribunal set out to enquire into the circumstances around Joanne Hayes's confession.
