In this House, we have had to look honestly at what the State did to women and children right back to the time of the Magdalene laundries and the time of the Tuam babies.

Third Interim Report from the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes: Statements (13 Feb 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Maureen O'Sullivan: The issue of institutions, whether it be mother and baby homes, industrial schools or Magdalen laundries, is harrowing and very sad when we think of the lives lost and destroyed, not to mention the physical conditions and brutality experienced by so many.

Victor Boyhan: ...dreams. When I see a man and a woman begging on the streets in Dublin, when I see someone who comes to my office and has difficulty in tracing his or her family, or tells of an experience in the Magdalen laundry, or of abuse, they have not had their opportunities. It is important when we talk about a fairer society to remember we want a fairer society for all. Not for the squeezed...

Paul Murphy: I was born in 1983 in the country of the Magdalen laundries, the Kerry Babies case, the case of Ann Lovett and many other horrors. It has been said in the debate that the past is another country, and this is true in some very important respects, most importantly in respect of people's attitudes to these issues. However, in legal terms, that country continues today with the eighth amendment,...

Marcella Corcoran Kennedy: ...legally - for medical reasons - and, more worryingly, illegally. There is nothing new in unintended pregnancies. Our history of dealing with unintended pregnancies by putting girls and women into Magdalen laundries, mother and baby homes, industrial schools, county homes and other residential institutions is appalling testimony to that. In the 1980s, we had the Kerry babies tragedy and...

We and the State have made mistakes, as I have already highlighted - I quoted the Kerry babies case - and we all loathe the horrible events that have taken place in institutions of the State, such as the Magdalen laundries, and we know the mistakes we have made in the past.

These are all shameful episodes in Irish history.I want to raise...

Kathleen Funchion: ...Does he or she come back to the ombudsman time and again? What is the best advice the ombudsman can give? I agree with Dr. Muldoon's comments on direct provision.
