Health (Amendment) Bill 2016 [Seanad]: Second Stage (20 Jul 2016)

Maureen O'Sullivan: ...of the way to ensure their children will have the same rights and access as children who do not have a disability. I thought the stories from those in the industrial schools and the ladies in the Magdalen laundries were the worst we would hear about how we treat vulnerable people. However, we are hearing more heartbreaking, devastating and disturbing stories of what has been happening to...

Catherine Connolly: ...unconstitutional. I welcome the tone of this discussion and the rational and reasonable debate. When the famous amendment was introduced in 1983, the Bishop of Galway was Dr. Eamon Casey and the Magdalen laundry in Galway was still open. It was also the year that Sheila Rodgers died in Drogheda. A young, married Dundalk mother of two, she died in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda,...

Seanad: Immigration (Reform) (Regularisation of Residency Status) Bill 2016: Second Stage (29 Jun 2016)

Frances Black: .... It is a disgrace. It is not right that people are kept in such conditions. Some county councillors, who are also concerned about this issue, have described direct provision as the modern Magdalen laundries. It is imperative that when people come to Ireland we treat them with the respect and dignity they deserve. We need to improve the standards in which they are kept but also reduce...

Leaders' Questions (14 Jun 2016) See 1 other result from this debate

Ruth Coppinger: ...that having received such a stern rebuke, the Taoiseach is going to continue with the delaying tactic of a citizens' assembly. He has spoken about listening to women in the case of the Magdalens - we could argue that one - and in the case of marriage equality but he did not listen to women when Savita Halappanavar died. At that time, rather than saying it was absolutely necessary to...

Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Restorative Justice (9 Jun 2016)

Frances Fitzgerald: I can advise the Deputy that the processing of all applications to the Magdalene Laundries Restorative Justice Ex Gratia Scheme starts off on the premise that the testimony of the applicant is correct and the officers processing the application then seek to verify the application by checking appropriate records. If there are records and they are consistent with the application, then an offer...

Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Magdalen Laundries (19 May 2016)

Adoption (Amendment) Bill 2016: Second Stage (17 May 2016) See 1 other result from this debate

Jan O'Sullivan: ...their birth origins. It was also about how society frowned on certain issues. It was an Ireland that we are all glad to see the back of. There has been progress in many respects, including on the Magdalen laundries, residential institutions legislation and all that followed from the latter, but we have not dealt with everything yet. The children's referendum was a major and important...

Crime: Statements (5 May 2016)

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...represented in prison populations in every single country in the world. I can say anecdotally, because they come into my clinic and I know them from around my area, that people who were in industrial schools or Magdalene laundries, who had undiagnosed dyspraxia, dyslexia or other developmental problems, who had major housing issues or had abuse issues in their family are massively and...

Standing Order 112 Select Committee: Motion (10 Mar 2016)

Gerry Adams: ...very clear mandate to deal with the issues of, for example, the homeless who remain homeless as we sit here, the families in mortgage distress, the victims of the recent flooding who have still to get redress and others in rural Ireland who have been let down. I received a call today from a Magdalen laundries survivor who had not yet received a full pension, despite assurances from the...

Establishment of a Statutory Commission of Investigation into a Foster Home in the South East: Statements (2 Feb 2016) See 2 other results from this debate

Maureen O'Sullivan: ...;il le scannail eile a chuaigh ar aghaidh sa tír seo. There is an air of, "Can this have happened again in recent years?", after so many similar cases in the past. It is so reminiscent of our debates and discussions on the Magdalene Laundries, the mother and baby homes, and the abuse in residential institutions where young men, women and children were so disregarded and brutalised....

Public Accounts Committee: HSE Report on Foster Home in Waterford Community Care Area: Discussion (2 Feb 2016)

Mary Lou McDonald: ...of her family? I am raising this very particularly because the delegates are going to very great lengths to emphasise these were private arrangements. It is actually very reminiscent of the Magdalen laundries, this private arrangement carry-on. The initial statement looks to me kind of dishonourable in that it wishes to hang the culpability for all of this around the neck of Ann's...

Seanad: Direct Provision: Motion (27 Jan 2016)

Trevor Ó Clochartaigh: ...because of the Minister of State's partners in government, whether it is for reasons within the Department or whatever but it certainly is an issue that will not go away. I believe it will be our Magdalen laundry in the future and it is a scandal that we are not living up to the international human rights of the people in direct provision and we still have a great deal of work to do in...

Convention on the Constitution Final Reports: Statements (14 Jan 2016)

Paul Murphy: ...to the church to get away from its responsibilities and as an instrument of social control. That close connection between the church and the State was the context in which scandals such as the Magdalen laundries could take place. It is also the context in which people do not have the basic right to abortion, for example. We still have blasphemy in the Constitution. Despite the fine...
