While the original Schedule to the Residential Institutions Redress Act, 2002 included 123 institutions, section 4 of the Act empowered the Minister to add certain additional institutions to the Schedule by Order. St. Patrick's Mother and Baby Home was added to the Schedule on the basis that it operated as a children's home and came within the scope of section 4 of the Act.
