Call For Taoiseach To Make A Full Apology To The Magdalene Survivors

Labour TD for Dublin North Sean Kenny has called on the Taoiseach Enda Kenny to make a full apology to the Magdalene Laundries survivors.

Mr Kenny told the Dáil earlier today that he wanted to use the next couple of weeks to decide how best to deal with the needs and requirements of the survivors.

Speaking on RTÉ's News at One, Mr Kenny said: "I'm going to raise it at the parliamentary party meeting today [at lunchtime], the need for an apology and a number of my colleagues will also be raising it as well.

"There is public concern about the delay in making an apology and I think that needs to be dealt with."
