Horrifying Story Of Women Enslaved In Magdalene Laundries: The Outrageous Scandal Rocking Ireland & The Church | Radar Online

The Irish government has admitted that from its founding in 1922 through 1996, it used a work prison run by Catholic nuns, called the Madalene Laundries, as a depository for women and young girls the state and priests deemed of low moral character or too attractive for their own good. Many were essentially kidnapped, not knowing where they were brought or why. Known as "Maggies", the inmates were used as slave laundry labor for hotels and government institutions such as the Irish Army.
