Probably those in Ireland will be aware of 'Eclipsed' a play first staged in 1992 and about the Magdalen Homes.
In Galway at the moment certain people are busy agitating and pushing their anti-Catholic agenda.
The Magdalen homes and the death of an Indian woman continue to be used to attack Catholics.
As I mentioned on a previous thread the Sisters of Mercy have leased their convent to COPE an organisation that cares for women experiencing violence.
'Eclipsed' was written by a former novice of the Sisters of Mercy. As a novice she spent a short period of time in the Magdalen Home in Galway.
In the coming days 'Eclipsed' will be staged again.
Regarding abortion, the Galway Rape Crisis Centre rent a house on Sister of Mercy land at the old laundry site.
In the newspapers it was mentioned a speaker from their centre would speak at a pro-abortion event. The person is no longer involved in the rape crisis centre and they didn't send a speaker to the event.
I was speaking to a girl about this. She was pleased the Rape Crisis Centre cancelled a speaker and the person mentioned is no longer their directoress.
A few weeks ago I was speaking to a woman, who works in the Rape Crisis Centre and I was surprised she agreed with me in relation to opposing a "memorial" to the women who stayed with the Mercy Order.
