    Meanwhile in Journal today:

    Japanese hotel chain is 'likely' buyer for Magdalene Laundry site - councill
    or

    Gannon, who’s a member of the Social Democrats, said that it was inappropriate for the hotel chain to purchase the premises given the premises’ dark history if abuse.
    “How can we in all conscience allow this site to once again become a place where women will be paid relatively little to clean and serve the needs of others in order to generate enormous income for a wealthy institution?”
    Plans for the derelict site include the building of a 351-bed hotel, a 140-bed student residence, a private cultural amenity and ten residential units, four of which are earmarked for social housing.

    Gannon has requested that it be clarified where the promised memorial for the Magdalene survivors would be placed, and called it “reprehensible and unforgivable” that it seemed to be an “afterthought” in the process.

    Something that has been on my mind since the recent devotion shown to babies born with Down's Syndrome in the debate over proposed repeal of the 8th amendment is a question over how many children born with DS or other conditions to women at these homes were subsequently adopted in the retail human trafficking operation the orders were operating.

    Some comment on the 'quality of the merchandise' written down by some of the nuns ('the better class of baby' mentioned in some letters to prospective adopters in the US springs to mind) makes me wonder whether any figures were kept on what happened to infants born with DS or another condition.

    The conditions would have made them more difficult to place where sadly but realistically prospective parents would inevitably have opted for able bodied healthy children.

    So does anyone know of any data on infants born to women at these gulags where disability was noted?

    Meanwhile in Texas, a priest who enabled at least one abuser to abuse over 100 children, is convicted of murder committed in 1960: LINK
