A research project focusing on the events in Magdalene Laundries is being launched today.

Transcripts and archival material relating to the Laundries, will be made available through UCD archives.

Around 5,000 pages of documents are contained in the research.

Over 11 hundred women are thought to have suffered in the Laundries over the decades.

Dr Katherine O’Donnell, who led the project, says the 35 survivors who took part, took great comfort in re-telling their stories.
