The Shame of Ireland
Just caught a well sourced, but (as yet) unsubstantiated rumour that the orders are trying to get the old Stanhope Street Laundry re0opened as a "residential centre" for "victims of trafficking" - which is the term they use increasingly for sex workers and anyone they deem to be "at risk of sex work" or "affected by sex work" -
You couldn't make this stuff up and it gets easier to see how the mentality that allowed and encouraged the laundries was created every day..
Has anyone heard any more of this?
Where to START on how wrong that particular building would be, in how many ways.
Like Bessboro which is used by HSE as contact center for mothers and children in care.
Mothers describe the horrible feelings still there, the ghosts of the mothers and babies still there. etc
Mothers searched and made little of.
Typical using the old abuse energies
