The project archive contains over 5,000 pages of materials which include comprehensive papers from the Justice for Magdalenes (JFM) campaign, 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 interviewees, artists and activists.  These materials will be available through UCD Archives by the end of the year.

Contact us if you would like to donate any materials to the archive.
