Read an opinion piece on SOS’s forthcoming Bill by Fergus Finlay in the Irish Examiner
A FEW weeks ago, I wrote here that the Taoiseach’s apology to the women who had survived the hardship and abuse of the Magdalene Laundries represented significant social progress, for which he deserved a lot of congratulations.
It was heartfelt and sincere. In fact it was clear that in the time between his botched statement in the Dáil and the detailed apology he made, he had learned a lot. His meetings with the Magdalene women had clearly made a huge impression on him.
