Filmmaker who Made an Emotional Connection

The Irish Examiner have today published an interview with Steven O’Riordan on how he got involved with, and his roller-coaster ride with the ladies from the Magdalene Laundries.

“On Tuesday night, a long line of Irish women in their 50s, 60s, and 70s stood side by side on the plinth outside the Dáil.
Each woman held on tightly to the hand of another before they all raised their linked hands, cheering and smiling broadly at the scrum of cameras and journalists standing below them. In the midst of that group stood a young man. From Millstreet in Co Cork, Steven O’Riordan isn’t the son of a Magdalene survivor. He isn’t a human rights activist. He is a 29-year-old who watched Peter Mullan’s film The Magdalene Sisters in 2006, having just graduated from a film studies degree.” – read the full article on the Irish Examiner
