Dublin 2014

Despite the rainy weather, a huge crowd turned out for the 2014 Flowers for Magdalenes event in Dublin on 2nd March. Speakers included Sean McDermott Street survivor Martina Keogh, pictured below with her close friend and JFMR representative Prof Katherine O’Donnell. A short portion of Martina’s speech is available in the video further down the page. Sadly, Martina died in November 2015, and we still miss her dearly.  We were proud to pay tribute to Martina at the 2016 Flowers for Magdalenes event.
