EPISODE 38: KERRY: Will a UN investigation mean justice for Magdalene Laundry survivors?

We’re back on our county buzz. The Kingdom of Kerry is our county this week, and we’re examining the case of Elizabeth Coppin, as the UN Committee on Torture permits her case against Ireland to be heard. Leading lawyer on the case Dr. Maeve O’Rourke breaks down the legal context of the case, and the author of Republic of Shame, Caelainn Hogan joins us in studio to give us some context about a history that keeps coming back to haunt the present day. Are we finally getting to a point where Ireland can confront this dark part of our past, and will survivors of institutional abuse get justice? Also on the pod, Kerry county rep Molly King, government formation drama, Andrea’s legendary county facts, a JLo update, and much more.
