Seanad: 25th Anniversary of Decriminalisation of Homosexuality: Motion (19 Jun 2018)

Fintan Warfield: ...work on this initiative. I also thank the Government for facilitating this motion. State apologies represent significant moments for this institution and the people it serves. I recall today the women of the Magdalen laundries and the survivors of those laundries who received an apology from former Taoiseach, Deputy Enda Kenny, on behalf of the State in February 2013 and, also, the State...

Independent Clinical Review of Maternity Services at Portiuncula University Hospital: Statements (14 Jun 2018)

Stephen Donnelly: ...fantastic work every day of our doctors, nurses, midwives and everyone else involved. 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...

Incorrect Birth Registrations: Statements (14 Jun 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Katherine Zappone: ...survivor centred and designed with the needs and the hopes of survivors in mind. It may be time to consider a scope. We are living in a present that is still attempting to respond appropriately to the Magdalen laundries, the mother and baby homes and this adoption illegality issues. We may need to reckon with our national history of gender and justice, inclusive of the ways in which it...

Housing: Motion [Private Members] (13 Jun 2018)

Darragh O'Brien: ...'s predecessor, the Tánaiste, Deputy Simon Coveney, there were no new homes, no children playing, no builders, no diggers, no hoarding and no construction. There was nothing. Down the road from that the Magdalen laundry site in Sean MacDermott Street is another example of the State's lack of commitment and ambition to deliver affordable homes. It is a 2 acre site less than half a...

Jim O'Callaghan: ...for their attendance. I commend him on one issue which he has not mentioned. This committee had, for a long while, advocated that the Minister abide by the recommendations in respect of the Magdalen laundries made by the Ombudsman and in the reports prepared previously by Mr. Justice Quirke. I acknowledge that the Minister ultimately followed the recommendations of the Ombudsman and he...

...Campaign to assist the vulnerable and elderly Irish community in Britain. We focused particularly on helping the survivors of institutional abuse who now live in Britain, especially women from the Magdalen laundries. I was honoured to do that work and to support those women. My reasons for applying for the role as chairman of DAA are straightforward. First, DAA plays an increasingly...

Seanad: Order of Business (12 Jun 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Ivana Bacik: I commend all those involved in the wonderful ceremony last week, Dublin Honours Magdalenes. It was uplifting to see it after such shabby treatment of so many women for so long by the State, other institutions and, in many cases, by individual families. It was good and positive to see such a great welcome for the Magdalenes by Dublin's Lord Mayor, as well as other aspects of civic and...

Bríd Smith: ...country since the foundation of the State. Since 1983, we have learned a great deal with the exposure of all of the scandals around the treatment of women and children in institutions like the Magdalen laundries and the Tuam mother and baby home. However, we still have a great deal to learn about how we treat women's health. We need to bring closure quickly to the questions of...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Education and Skills: Barriers to Education Facing Vulnerable Groups: Discussion (29 May 2018)

...to look at the issue of reparations. We must acknowledge this injustice, as we have acknowledged the injustices that was perpetrated on the women who were institutionalised in such places as the Magdalen laundries. Fifty years of State-sponsored denial of Traveller identity and culture has not only impacted on educational attainment but also has created an internalised oppression,...

Leaders' Questions (22 May 2018)

Leo Varadkar: ...knows, as has been the case with so many other redress schemes, such as the symphysiotomy redress scheme - which I was involved in putting together - or the scheme we put in place for women who were residents in the Magdalen laundries, it is necessary in all cases that there be evidence. Redress is made based on evidence and that is the basis on which we are operating into the future. I...

Leaders' Questions (17 May 2018)

Bríd Smith: ...misleading and false and messaging that is untruthful and makes a mockery of women's lives and the deeply divisive and difficult choices they must often make. We want to move away from the legacy of the Magdalen laundries, mother and baby homes in Tuam and elsewhere, the shaming and stigmatising of women and the wholesale export and outsourcing of women's healthcare to Britain and...

Mandatory Open Disclosure: Motion (15 May 2018)

Gerry Adams: ...to pay compensation for the abuse she endured as a pupil. Many elderly women who were victims of symphysiotomy are still fighting for truth and compensation. Let us not forget the women victims of the Magdalen laundries or the mother and baby homes, or Savita Halappanavar and countless others. We must also recall that the State forces many victims, particularly women, of anomalies,...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Future of Mental Health Care: Mental Health Services: Discussion (Resumed) (2 May 2018)

...were often over-inclusive and included people with learning disabilities, people with mental health needs, people who were socially different and people who were graduates of orphanages and Magdalen laundries. We had a great fondness for institutional care. The pendulum has now swung in the opposite direction and we have gone from having the world's highest bed to population ratio to one...

Maureen O'Sullivan: ...reasons, sexually abuse children. Ireland has a horrific past in terms of protecting and guarding children. That is evident from events in the industrial schools, mother and baby homes, Magdalen laundries and some foster homes. However, Ireland has come a long way in terms of ensuring the safety of children and progress is being made in regard to child welfare and protection. We...

Peter Fitzpatrick: ...women have contacted the HSE helpline because of these deaths. Out of the 17 women who died, 15 did not know of the misdiagnoses. As with other issues such as the mother and baby homes, the Magdalen laundries and the hepatitis C scandal, the 208 women who were diagnosed with cervical cancer should have received earlier intervention. Of these women, 162 were not notified that an...

Other Questions: Mother and Baby Homes Inquiries (1 May 2018)

Denise Mitchell: ...of Education and Skills and the Department of Health should re-examine the decision to deny the Bethany Home survivors redress. We recently saw the decision to reverse access to redress for Magdalen laundry survivors. Why can it not be done for the Bethany Home survivors? I will say it straight to the Minister. These ten survivors will be very disappointed; they will feel let down....
