I was at the #magdaleneproject yesterday, and it was the best, most insightful way to spend a Saturday. Congrats to all involved.

Thanks to all who tweeted from the #MagdaleneProject today, very moving to read, must have been incredibly moving to be there Expand

An emotional day here in Liberty Hall for Magdalene survivors & their families #magdaleneproject… http://instagram.com/p/eziRorkhTJ/ Expand

@OpheliaBenson Thanks for that interesting info. I did a search. See: RT “Census 1911: Donnybrook Magdalen laundry http://wp.me/p1QvX3-4uB .”

If they weren’t Laundresses, they were seamstresses, and servants. Never religious nuns. Too lowly for such a holy title. God loves sinners? Expand Expand

@OpheliaBenson They’re two different tweets. View conversation

Nuns often changed a woman’s name and cut her hair off on first day of incarceration in laundries #magdaleneproject Expand

@OpheliaBenson There’s a Magdalen Laundry project on today at Liberty Hall. See: http://Magdaleneoralhistory.com  I only found out about it at Twitter View conversation

@OpheliaBenson There’s a religious order not too far from me. I wonder if there was a Magdalen laundry there? Must check. #magdaleneproject  View conversation

Isn’t Maeve O’Rourke one of the exceptional people of her generation? #magdalens #Irishwomen Expand

When I was growing up in Ireland, the laundries were always referred to as ‘Magdalen’ Laundries. Not ‘Magdalene’ Laundries. Sounds so odd. Expand

I can’t for the life of me understand why there is an ‘e’ added on to ‘Magdalen’ Laundries. That ‘e’ must have emerged in aftermath of film? Expand

Three standing recommendations, UN and IHRC, would support Govt to compel orders to comply with investigation. Will they? #magdaleneproject Expand

Our alumna @maeveorourke‘s work is now documented by @magoralhistory http://www.magdaleneoralhistory.com/Magdalene #magdaleneproject

Until there is an independent thorough statutory inquiry we will never know truth about the laundries #magdaleneproject Expand

Archival history contains 800 pages of JFM testimonies, newspaper articles, Dáil debates, UNCAT decisions #magdaleneproject @cmcgettrick Expand

The very wonderful @cmcgettrick thanking Magdalene women, hurt so much, but trusting enough to create archival history #magdaleneproject Expand

Women in the Magdalene Laundries were given very little food, usually only bread & dripping, hunger commonplace #magdaleneproject Expand
