Children in care taken to Nazareth, Fahan 27.01.14

CHILDREN in the care of Nazareth nuns in Derry were sometimes brought across the border to the sisters' home in Fahan, Buncrana, an inquiry has heard.
Former residents of two children's homes in Derry are giving evidence today at the Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry.
And delays by the religious congregation in submitting evidence to Northern Ireland inquiry have caused "considerable difficulties", a lawyer said.
Christine Smith QC for the inquiry said material given by the Nazareth order of nuns was not properly ordered and was still being received up to last week, RTE is reporting today.
Homes run by the Nazareth nuns included Bishop Street and Termonbacca in Derry city. This module of the inquiry is expected to last a number of weeks.
Public hearings at the inquiry, based in Co Down, began a fortnight ago.
It is examining child abuse allegations at 13 children's homes and other residential institutions in the North from 1922 to 1995.
After a major advertising campaign, more than 400 individuals contacted the inquiry, claiming they had been abused.
The inquiry is chaired by retired High Court judge Sir Anthony Hart and is due to report on its findings to the Northern Assembly in early 2016.
