One the 11th of April 1972, a baby girl was born. Her name was Martina.

8 years later, that girl – now called Jenny – found out she had been adopted.

Jenny Tyrrell is just one of 13,000 babies who were adopted in Ireland in the 1970s, the alternative (an unmarried mother raising a child) being socially unacceptable.

In the documentary, Looking for Fairytale Castle, Jenny and her birth mother discuss the impact her adoption had on them both.
