Cllr Timmons says ‘’ a crowd of people including many survivors gathered to pay respect to the women who were in the Magdalene Laundries at the annual Flowers for the Magdalene’s in Glasnevin Cemetery , these women were imprisoned against their will and we should never forget them , one thing that stuck out was the ageing survivor population , all survivors of all state institutions must get the justice and truth they deserve , justice and truth has been for way too long denied many still want answers and they deserve answers , weather people where in the Magdalene Laundries , The Mother and Baby Homes , Industrial Schools or County Homes , they were all institutions that where ran by a system of control and fear by the Church and State , the time for reports and promises is over , we need real action ’’
