Justice for Magdalenes Welcomes New Home for Statue

The decision to relocate the city's Magdalene statue to a more focal point near the old Laundries site is a great tribute to the women who suffered there.

That's according to the Justice for Magdalenes Organisation.

It follows the city council's recent approval to install a bus lane on Bothar Ui Eithir near the statue.

The move requires the statue to be taken away from its current location at the junction of the road with Forster Street.

At a recent council meeting, planners agreed to incorporate the statue in a raised flowerbed right beside its current home.
