project archive contains over 5,000 pages of materials which
include comprehensive papers
from the Justice
laundry account books for the Limerick Magdalene which seem to
detail extensive commercial activity, electoral rolls which provide
a register of the women held in the laundries, which has been an
unexplored resource to date and most valuable in terms of the lack
of access to the records held by the religious sisters. The
collection also includes personal collections of papers from
artists and activists.
These materials will be available through UCD
Archives by the end of the year.
if you would like to donate any materials
to the archive.
