The Good Shepherd, Magdalen Asylum was an orphanage and Magdalen Laundry from 1872 - 1970's.
This post is a brief record of some of the children and women who resided there. I first became interested in the Convent after seeing the burial place of a number of these women and children at St. Joseph's Cemetery, Cork.
Please do not contact with possible records, this is a project of mine and is ongoing. Thanks..
