On 15 April 2021 at 4:00pm, join us online for a fascinating talk presented in partnership with Waterford Memories Project by Dr. Jennifer O’Mahoney and Dr. Kate McCarthy entitled Exploring Waterford’s Magdalene Heritage.
This talk explores a unique educational resource pack which uses the former Magdalene Laundry in Waterford as a case study for students and the public to explore their local culture and heritage through a set of research-informed, multi-media resources.
The aim of this pack is to encourage educators to introduce students to some of the critical information and debates about the Magdalene Laundries, and to encourage members of the public to engage with their local history.
Book your free place for this online talk at:
