Very sad to hear the news that the Magdalene Laundry in Cork has been destroyed by fire. I investigated this sad, desolate place three times with the team and felt a real connection to the spirits of some of the girls who it seems were unable to escape even in death.
I can not begin to describe the emotions I feel as I look at the pictures of the burning building. The women and children who lived and died here still have many stories left unheard and they need to be heard.
I hope that the spirits who felt unable to leave will continue to try to communicate with the living even though they no longer have even a roof over them.
I will never forget the time I spent in this rotting and rotten building and even though I know justice will never be done, I hope that these women will somehow find peace.
