Sean MacDermott St Magdalene Laundry3D Model
This is a reconstruction of the now patially demolished Sean MacDermott St Laundry in Dublin, the last of the infamous Magdalene Laundries to close - in 1996. Several buildings on the site, notably all those connected to the industrial laundry have now been demolished following a fire in 2006, removing this important link to the past, and the memories of the women who were confined within.
This digital reconstruction, overlaid with exceprts of testimony from the women recorded in he Magdalene Oral History Project carried out in 2013 by University College Dublin with the support of the Irish Research Council, aims to give users a link to this difficult history, and a resource to use for education and contemplation.
