- Residential Institutions Statutory Fund: Motion [Private Members] (24 May 2017) See 1 other result from this debate
Kathleen Funchion: ...The message that comes across is one of "get over it and move on", which, unfortunately, is the way we deal with everything in this country. How many times have we debated mother and baby homes, the Magdalen laundries and so on in this House, all of us using words such as "terrible" and "horrible" in that regard yet we are allowing similar things to happen. This is happening under our...
- Seanad: Adoption (Information and Tracing) Bill 2016: Second Stage (17 May 2017)
Fintan Warfield: ...of the Bill is the lack of provision on information and tracing for those who were sent, or whose children were sent, overseas for adoption. Considering that some 2,000 babies were exported to the US from the Magdalen laundries, a large cohort that the Bill could have provided for are not included. I can appreciate the sensitive and turbulent nature of making private information...

Alice Mary Higgins: ...and record we care to read and in every place in the ground we have been asked to look. If we do not know that abuse or neglect took place, for what did the Taoiseach apologise to the survivors of Magdalen laundries? We know there has been abuse and neglect. The task of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes is to determine the extent, depth and various awful...

Katherine Zappone: ...Devine about the 2012 report, the files were surrendered to the HSE when the homes were closed. The information in question was examined by the HSE as part of its input to the examination of the Magdalen laundries.

As we try to come to terms with the abuse inflicted on people in the mother and baby homes, the Magdalen laundries and other State and religious institutions, we often look back and ask ourselves how this happened. This is how it happens. It...

Catherine Connolly: I would like to think that but then we fast-forward to 2009 and we have the Minister for Education and Science of the time making a statement in the Dáil that the State had no input into the Magdalen laundries. That has since been disproved and we have had the Magdalen report. Now we are up to the mother and baby homes and again the State is doing its damnedest. My question to Mr....

Maire Devine: .... The report is an attempt at washing Ireland's dirtiest open secret - our concentration camps, our babies for adoption factories and our slave trade. Look at the length of time it took for the Magdalen women to be given an apology. They were made to beg for years. Even now, what was promised remains to be fulfilled. As the final report is not due to be published until next year,...

- Seanad: Order of Business (11 Apr 2017)
Frances Black: ...thousands of people in direct provision throughout this country is nothing short of a scandal. A country coming to terms with the awful abuse inflicted on people in the mother and baby homes, the Magdalen laundries and other State and religious institutions is now sowing the seeds for future shame. The treatment of people fleeing some of the worst abuses around the world is shameful....

Richard Boyd Barrett: ...of children living for years in this system of direct provision is a scandal beyond scandals. It is not an exaggeration to say that allowing this to persist is on a par with industrial schools and the Magdalen laundries.
