Tonight’s vote to halt the sale of Magdalene Laundry on Sean McDermott ran out of time at this afternoons city council meeting.. I’m enormously disappointed but determined to redouble my efforts to ensure this sale is defeated.

At Dublin City Council.
A scheduled vote on a motion from Social Democrat councillor Gary Gannon – to stop the sale of the magdalene laundry site on Sean McDermott Street in Dublin to a Japanese hotel chain – never took place as the council ran out of time.
The motion will be back on the agenda on Thursday, September 13.
A petition in support of the motion has gained more than 10,000 signatures.
It can be signed here.
