Irish Nationality and Citizenship (Restoration of Birthright Citizenship) Bill 2017: Second Stage [Private Members] (17 Jan 2019)

Mick Barry: ...their parents seeking asylum here. In 20 or 30 years' time, when the history books are written, people will look back at the direct provision centres the Minister presides over as being no better than the Magdalen laundries and industrial schools of the past. They are the modern day versions of those places. Direct provision centres and the citizenship referendum go hand in hand. It is...

Centenary of 1918 General Election: Statements (13 Dec 2018)

Catherine Connolly: ...the male-dominated medical profession to defeat the most basic mother and baby scheme in 1951. It created the Ireland of the institutions, the legacy of which we are still dealing with. It was the Ireland of the Magdalen laundries, industrial schools and mother and baby homes. It gave us the Ireland of inequality which allowed men up to 65 to disinherit their wives completely. It...

Statute of Limitations (Amendment) Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (11 Dec 2018)

Louise O'Reilly: ...State to examine the issue because of these parallels. Day after day we come in here and talk about scandals of the past. We all nod our heads and say: "We are absolutely certain that it will not happen again." We talk about the Magdalen laundries yet we have direct provision. Now we are talking about a historical injustice but actually the same injustice is being perpetuated. The...

Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill 2018: Report Stage (Resumed) (4 Dec 2018)

Joan Burton: ...written by some clever lawyer, rather than the Deputies here. We all use lawyers to help us with the drafting of amendments. Are these drafters the successors of the people who locked women in Magdalen laundries and put their children in orphanages and industrial schools? It took a very long time before this House even addressed those issues. Are we really using that same language...

Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Bill 2018: Report Stage (Resumed) (29 Nov 2018)

Bernard Durkan: ...found herself in a desperate situation, with nowhere to go, with no help from any quarter. The only place to go was across the water, to leave the country or disappear into what were once the Magdalen laundries or the mother and baby homes. It is time we grew up a little. It is time we learned that women had lives as well, that they are entitled to due and fair consideration and that...

Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Magdalen Laundries (29 Nov 2018)

Catherine Connolly: ...evidence from women and relatives or friends providing corroborating information will be given equal, if not superior weight, as the records of the religious orders in respect of applications to the Magdalen restorative justice ex-gratia scheme; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [49815/18]

Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (Gender Pay Gap Information) Bill 2017: Second Stage (Resumed) [Private Members] (28 Nov 2018)

Joan Burton: ...pointing out. When Deputy Frances Fitzgerald and myself were the only female members of the Cabinet, alongside Máire Whelan as Attorney General, we worked to ensure that women and girls who had been affected by the Magdalen laundries had a process whereby they did not have to go to court and could get redress. It was not perfect but it provided a solution, particularly for women...

Maureen O'Sullivan: ...and background. We know about our own past when it comes to protecting and guarding children and how much it leaves to be desired. We had all of the events in industrial schools, mother and baby homes, Magdalen laundries and foster homes. However, Ireland has come a long way in ensuring the safety of children and we have seen the progress that has been made on child welfare and...

Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Magdalen Laundries (28 Nov 2018)

Maureen O'Sullivan: 179. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if his attention has been drawn to the dismay of survivors of laundries at the addendum requests from his Department and the fact that the Ombudsman has taken issue with the nature of the requests; and the way in which he plans to address same. [49801/18]

Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Magdalen Laundries (27 Nov 2018)

Mary Lou McDonald: 299. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if women eligible to apply to the Magdalen redress scheme (details supplied) are not required to provide proof or evidence of the hours they worked in cases in which this information is provided to the best of their ability. [49011/18]

Written Answers — Department of Justice and Equality: Magdalen Laundries Data (22 Nov 2018)

Catherine Connolly: 98. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality the reason the addendum to the terms of Magdalen restorative justice ex gratia scheme presumes that no child under 12 years of age worked in a Magdalen laundry in view of the fact that the McAleese report confirms that some children under 12 years of age did; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [48693/18]

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (20 Nov 2018)

Mary Lou McDonald: ..., in response to questions on promised legislation and the programme for Government, the Taoiseach indicated that the Government would deal in a whole and compassionate way with survivors of the Magdalen laundries. Over the course of the weekend, I read that under the scheme women who worked in the laundries when they were girls under the age of 12 will be asked to provide evidence that...

Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation (15 Nov 2018)

Joan Burton: There was a welcome recent announcement by the Department of Justice and Equality on the extension of the scheme for women who worked in Magdalen laundries to those who were excluded from the first scheme. I was disappointed to discover that women are being asked to provide evidence of having worked. I am sure the Tánaiste knows that many of the laundries do not have records. The...

Dublin (North Inner City) Development Authority Bill 2018: Second Stage [Private Members] (14 Nov 2018) See 1 other result from this debate

Mary Lou McDonald: .... The Department of Justice and Equality and Dublin City Council have failed to deliver on their commitment to develop an appropriate memorial at the Seán McDermott Street site to the women who survived the Magdalen laundries. This particular failure is truly astounding and gives an insight into the sometimes shallow response by the State when acknowledging the horrific treatment...

Saincheisteanna Tráthúla - Topical Issue Debate: Direct Provision System (14 Nov 2018) See 3 other results from this debate

John Brady: The Minister of State missed the key point. I did not describe the centres as Magdalen laundries. Rather, the NGOs which deal with refugees seeking protection in this State did so. They are right to point out that direct provision centres are the modern-day equivalent of Magdalen laundries. The problem is that the Government is turning to the private sector to address the accommodation...

Joint Oireachtas Committee on Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs: Heritage Council Strategy 2018-2022: Discussion (14 Nov 2018) See 2 other results from this debate

Fintan Warfield: ...would add that we will be judged on what we choose to remember and how we choose to remember it. Nothing horrific has been mentioned in what we choose to remember, particularly industrial schools, Magdalen laundries and all of that. Although it is uncomfortable, the uncomfortable stuff is important too, although I probably do not have to say that. I completely agree with Mr....
