Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Mother and Baby Homes Inquiries (20 Sep 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Maureen O'Sullivan: My experiences come from knowing and being with the ladies from the Magdalen laundries. Common among them is the sense of hurt, physical, mental and emotional, which they experienced. In the case of the Magdalen laundry ladies, the main concern is their ages and the timeframe in terms of progressing their issues in a speedy way. I understand the need for balance between indepth study and...

Niall Ó Donnghaile: .... This hand in glove relationship prevented public accountability of both State and church and this unaccountability space was filled with scandals such as child abuse and its cover up, mother and baby homes, Magdalen laundries, industrial schools and the list could go on.

Marie Louise O'Donnell: ...way institutions, establishments and people have treated them under the auspices of the State.

I will not be...

Mary Lou McDonald: ...engagement? Outside of theology, what discussions will the Taoiseach have with the Pope and what matters does he intend to raise with him? Does he propose to raise the mother and baby homes, the Magdalen laundries and all of those experiences?

When it comes to women’s health and the control of women’s bodies, however, this State has a dark past - the Magdalen laundries, mother and baby homes, symphysiotomy, forced adoptions and falsified birth certificates. The list goes on and on. Now added to that list is what happened at...
