- Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission Bill 2014: Second Stage (Resumed) (9 Apr 2014)
Mick Wallace: ...the inquiry commences begs the question of the purpose of the inquiry. The requirement that a matter be of grave public concern could preclude an inquiry into a hidden violation - for example, the Magdalen laundries, a confidential communication from a whistleblower not already in the public domain or a matter than affects only a limited group of people but none the less has significant...

Mary Lou McDonald: ...from his Government colleagues. I do not have the time to go through it point by point, but I would like to take issue with the commendation afforded to him on the manner of his handling of the Magdalen laundries issue. Far from being comprehensive or conclusive, it was shambolic and the bare minimum that could have been delivered. That is not just my assessment of that episode. He was...
- Order of Business (25 Mar 2014)
Seán Ó Fearghaíl: Given that the Minister for Health is in the House, I acknowledge the progress made for the people who suffered in the Magdalen laundries and from symphysiotomies. There are only 32 survivors of thalidomide, who are represented by two organisations. The programme for Government made a firm commitment in this regard. Has the Minister met the two organisations and are we advancing towards a...

Gerald Nash: I will move on to the Magdalen fund which was established to facilitate the making of ex-gratia payments to those who were in those institutions some time ago. How many applications have been made to date to the fund to access ex-gratia payments? How many formal offers have been accepted and how many payments have issued to date to the women concerned?

Martin Heydon: ...recovery. While the economy dominated the agenda and the public consciousness, we made huge strides socially by addressing issues that had been swept under the carpet for too long. I refer to the Magdalen laundries issue, for example. We established the first ever Government Ministry for children and brought forward the children's rights referendum. We passed the Protection of Life...

Mary Lou McDonald: ...political and cultural life of their communities, but it stands over direct provision. Nothing has changed for the Traveller community. The Government drags its heels on the little it has promised to some, not all, survivors of the Magdalen laundries and has turned its back completely on the men and women who survived the Bethany Home. The issue of illegal adoptions has yet to be...

- Other Questions: Direct Provision System (27 Feb 2014)
Denis Naughten: Twelve months ago, the Taoiseach described the Catholic-run workhouses as the nation's shame. I am firmly of the view that the current operation of the direct provision system is the Magdalen laundries scandal of this generation. Some day, a Taoiseach will have to come before the Dáil and make a similar apology to Irish citizens whose lives have been destroyed by these modern day...

All the statistics have been discredited, including the statistic of an average age of 14...
