More than 400 women who worked in Magdalene laundries, including the one based at Forster Street in the city, have applied for state compensation.
Since a Department of Justice helpline was set up last month more than 1,100 calls have been received, according to today’s Irish Independent.
424 women have registered their interest in being included in receiving benefits from the state compensation fund.
The women were asked to give details of which laundry they were resident in, the dates they were there, and whether they have any records to support their application.
