Take A Longreads Look At-Ireland’s Frogotten Women

Longreads publishes essays and features from short pieces to long-form like this one from Irish journalist JP O’Malley. I heard about the Magdalene Laundries and the iron-fisted control the church had over Ireland. What scares about this story, and stories of Indigenous children in residential school, is the belief the heinous acts pleased God.

JP O’Malley chronicles a side-business of one order, packaging games for Hasbro. O’Malley puts another human face on the story, an aunt who lived her entire life under the convent’s rule.

 

In Little Atoms, JP O’ Malley tells the story of the Irish nuns who a multi-million dollar corporation exploited to help produce its toys.
