Magdalene Laundries

  • Bookmark this page

Joanie was an unmarried girl just turned twenty-seven When they sent her to the sisters because of the way men looked at her. Branded as a jezebel she knew she was not bound for heaven, She had been cast in shame into the Magdalen launderies. Most girls went there pregnant some by their own fathers. Bridget got her belly from the Parish Priest. They're trying to wash things as white as snow,all of those woe-begotten daughters In the steaming stains of the Magdalen launderies. Prostitutes and destitutes and temptresses like Joanie. Fallen women sentenced into dreamless drudgery. Why do the call this place Our Lady Of Charity? Of Charity?
