The Well Below The Valley
The song is called The Well Below the Valley. Apparently it's an old Irish itinerant song. The first version I heard of it was by Christy Moore on his Live at the Point album (fuller version than this one), and there are versions of the song by him on youtube.
So disturbing. They violate their own fucking dogma. If you confess sins to God via confession than you are forgiven. They denied that for these women. It's as if they were condemmed to death for fuckin nothin
Its easy to blame the Catholic Church and the Irish State for everything that happened in the Magdalene Laundries but the families who sent their girls there are as much to blame and they should be ashamed of themselves turning their backs. Maybe the world was a different place back then but thats still no excuse.
