The God Slot Friday 1 March 2013
Coming up Friday March 8.
The McAleese report on the Magdalene Laundries created a sensation when recently published, prompting the Taoiseach to deliver a State apology to the women who spent time in these institutions.
To date, public comment from the religious Sisters who ran the Magdalene Laundries has been scarce.
Reporter Claire McCormack met two Sisters who belong to an order that was involved in the running of Magdalene Laundries. They spoke to her frankly, albeit anonymously. The Sisters agreed to the airing of their interview on The God Slot on condition that their names, their order and the particular laundries that they ran remain anonymous.
Their words are read by Catherine Hogan and The God Slot on Friday 8 March presents them without any editorial comment from us.
