Magdalen Sisters Sculpture Unveiled In Galway

 

Updated : Mar 9, 2009

The official unveiling of a public sculpture to honour Galway's Magdalen Sisters took place today.

Up to 100 people gathered in Galway on International Women's Day for the presentation of the limestone sculpture entitled 'Final Journey' by the artist Mick Wilkins. It features poetry by playwright and poet Patricia Burke Brogan, who is celebrated for her award-winning play Eclipsed about the Magdalen Women.

The sculpture is located at the corner of Forster Street and Bóthar Bhreandán Uí Eithir which backs on to the site of the former Convent of Mercy's Magdalen laundry, which was demolished in 1991.

VeryHappyPig will be travelling to Galway this week to see the sculpture.
